University of California - Los Angeles is a public research university founded in 1919. It’s amongst the top universities in the USA, and is a hot favourite among Asians (specially Indians) although it should be noted that it’s not easy to get in at all.
While UCLA is naturally renowned because of its excellent academic programs, that’s not the only thing it’s famous for. A hair-raising statistic about UCLA is its Olympic tradition - the university has had at least one gold medalist in each and every Olympics since 1920.
It ranks #13 according to U.S. News' 'Best Global Universities Ranking' list.
