Hello everyone: 

I am trying to decide between UCLA and UCSF for a Biochemistry PhD and I would appreciate any input. Does anyone know which place has better success for academic vs industry employment and what the reputation is at both locations?

Both programs have great research, advisers, and students. Thank you everyone in advance for your input!

Hey, I'll be attending UCLA's chemistry program this fall.  I chose it because of higher prestige, not too demanding extra hoops (other schools I visited had cumulative written exams their second year and passing a certain number of quals, etc), and good industry connections (my intent after graduation).  Also, every potential PI I spoke with had a good track record of sending students on to jobs in academia.  If you want to talk about it more, feel free to PM me!
