"We are working to get our decisions out before the OCI deadline for admitted transfer students and we expect to have decision out before the deadline passes." Inquired about decisions, OCI deadlines, etc....basically just trying to pry information

Now does anyone know when this OCI deadline for transfers is?

I was just accepted 10 minutes ago. I am very excited. I thought I was dead set on Notre Dame and now I don't know.

The interview was great. The dean of admissions is awesome, and Talin is super helpful.

Thanks everyone, and good luck to all of you. If you get an interview request it looks like a really good sign.

They have given me five days to make a decision. OCI requests are due on July 15th.

I had to call to check if my file was done. (probably not a good sign) Im abroad so an interview isn't likely, nonetheless I am holding out hope, as they told me over the phone it will be another 2-3 weeks before they decide. Even if I cant get OCI's im going.

BA UC Berkeley
1L Santa Clara Top 15% (GPA 3.59)
1 Law Journal (not law review)
1 CALI (criminal law)

in at Hastings (everyone i know thinks I should go, nobody on here does lol)

Just paid my seat deposit to UCLA. It has been an expensive summer. Anyone else going to the Transfer Welcome Meeting next Wednesday? I just RSVPd.

I am very excited to be living just two hours from my fiancee. :)

I havent, I assume this is for the first round of admissions and seat deposits. When I called they said they would send a decision in a couple of weeks.

What kind of questions did you get at the interview? I applied last Friday and got emails today telling me I'm still missing my Letter of Goodstanding and a scheduled interview with Dean Schwartz tomorrow. Kinda took me by surprise and now I'm trying to prepare for it.

Did they offer you money? That doesnt sound like all that much of an upgrade if you have to pay full sticker...
