FSP (Freshman Summer Program)

I heard that in FSP people meet people, and already form cliques so its harder to meet more people when school starts? Is that true? Besides that, who is applying? I cant :(

    UCLA doesn't have FSP. Berkeley has the program in the fall for spring admits. Ucla only has 3 day summer orientation for incoming freshman, Ucla does not have spring admits. I believe you can take regular summer classes but that would be students from every class level, not just freshman. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    ^you are wrong.

    AAP Summer Programs

    FSP only involves a small portion of the UCLA incoming freshman population. You take classes for a summer quarter, and you get a head start coming into UCLA because of the help you receive via AAP counselors. The UCLA 3 day summer orientation is for everyone, but does not include taking classes as part of its program. Anyone can take classes over the summer, though you won't get as much guidance as you would in FSP.

    Binta92, I can't either :( Which really sucks, because I would love to maintain the friendships I made during Admit Week. However, I don't believe we are at a serious advantage: it's only 6 weeks. Before you know it, we'll both be there. :)

    BTW, is there anyone who thinks that if you don't go to FSP you are at a serious social and academic advantage?

    there's at least 4 thousand other people in your same class let alone those who are 2nd,3rd,4th,5th,even 6th years. People who complain that they have no friends at ucla are the ones that stay in their rooms sleeping all day. Even those who game all day will probably be able to find people to play with on their floor. I'm guessing you're going to orientation and not planning to live offcampus, so...I wouldn't worry about any disadvantages.
