not saying the numbers are wrong but the amounts are related to a lawsuit against the city for backpay/no contract raise ect. since 1990s.

I agree that overtime is abused but at least they are doing work.
I would be willing to bet those police officers on that list have many years of service.

Plus when you look at extreme numbers of several workers and compare that to most of the guys making peanuts you lose perspective.

Recently graduated Bruin here.
My gpa is crap and my English is not great either.
I ended up finding a job within 1 month, not actuarial, but a very very good starting position(pay/proximity/hour/work/coworker/connection/cafe...etc).

you'll be ok. Companies like students from ucla.
Even if you can't find an el job, there are still TONS of opportunities outside.
You can think of actuary as a career you want to pursue eventually, and not starting your career as an EL actuarial analyst doesn't disqualify you from becoming one.

A friend of mine(also a bruin) applied for internship after she graduated so maybe you can try that.
