The selection process
UCLA uses a selection process itself, where
everything is the responsibility of the student. "We
haven't asked for letters of recommendation or official
transcripts at the time of application or interview
pupils", explains Cecilia Garcia, Assistant Director of
the Department for admission to undergraduate courses.
"The student must fill out a form with information that
allows us to have an idea of the student as a whole, not
just the notes," he says.
Entries are made on the University page. The
requirements may vary according to the course, so
