About UCLA and their music scene along with the anthro program which I was of little help with. Anyways, this person had gotten into both Cal and UCLA and wanted some more info about UCLA. Here’s my answer:
One thing to really consider and a major difference between these institutions is the semester (Cal) versus the quarter (UCLA) systems. You really should take into account the condensed aspect of a ten week term and three terms a school year, I’m assuming you have had no experience with it, as I had not. It takes a little to adjust to the system but it is totally doable, and the upside is it passes very quickly (its also a downside for classes you love and wish you had more time for). For the department of anthro I’m sure you’ve done the research, both are excellent places. As far as class sizes it depends on the class setup lectures can be as few as 25 to a large as 250 (esp if the lecture counts towards more than one major), while seminars and discussion classes (usually) have caps set as 20.
UCLA has a pretty great music scene. There’s UCLARadio.com, the yearly Spring Sing [its a pretty big deal on campus (9,000 people attended this year) where there are student performers and guest celebrity judges (this year there was RAVEN-SYMONE among others)… you could check out some of the vids on YouTube from previous years], and of course we are in the heart of LA there’s bound to be many opportunities. But besides actually performing there are also many opportunities for being on the other end, beside Bruin Bash (huge concert at the beginning of the fall quarter). There are also multiple free concerts that are put on by UCLA’s CEC featuring either local talent or up and coming performers (during this past fall quarter I got to see MSMR before one my classes… it was awesome).
As far as the decision goes I think it’s pretty important to get a feel for both campuses if you haven’t already. I know that for me when I first stepped onto UCLA ground I knew I belonged, the atmosphere suited me and I knew it was where I wanted to go.
Feel free to ask more questions, I’m always open to them and would love to help.
I just received an ask and remembered helping out people last year when I first got into UCLA as a transfer for advice and I’d love to do it again. If anyone has any questions about UCLA in general or more specifically transferring feel free to ask and I’ll answer to the best of my abilities.
Also check out the ucla or transfer tag on my tumblr…I might have already answered one of your questions

they build up this wedding for four years and literally a whole season and people still wonder why the fanbase is mad they got a divorce.
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.

This hit me like a brick
And people wonder why authors use italics and bold and shit so reader’s understand what’s going the fuck on.
And of course I just read this in my head 7 times, stressing each word differently.
i still don’t understand this…
holy shit yes.
When I finished reading I said to myself, “No fucking way!” Clever… very clever. You win this time.
This is by far the greatest post in existence. You can all go home. I am in pure awe at the brilliance of this. The world is beautiful and there is hope for humanity.
