I am 99.9% in. Hope they can hook me up with a Rec pass for ASW, that place looks pretty nice!

Alright, I have updated the original post. Let me know if you want to see anything else up there. Cheers!


good job, man; the updated OP looks good. We can even do a poll later on who's going to ASW or ppl's reactions after attending ASW, etc.

Also, UCB grads represent. Rhet/anthro here.


Good choice not going to Loyola/pepp/Hastings. Not sure what priority funding means. Go bears, dude/lady.

currently on the WL and really hoping to come off soon. What do you guys think UCI will be ranked and when are they going to be able to be ranked?

they will be ranked next March (so it will be for the year 2015). No one knows exactly where; some say top 30, some say top 25, and some even think it can break the top 20 (if they raise the medians sufficiently). We'll have to wait and see, really.

hope you get off the WL soon!

Just submitted my SIR! I know it's non-binding, but it still felt like a big deal :D

Sadly I had to choose the fail option on the poll above. The price on plane tickets from small east coast airports is not pretty.

You do get $500 if you end up matriculating...

Are you guys thinking formal or business casual? I guess I have to start digging in my closet.

On a different note, UCI SL has been two years in the making for me, so I'm stoked and can't wait to start...

I'm an 80%er here. Great scholly and LRAP sounds good to me, but I'm not from Cali which makes me hesitant. I plan on attending their April 5-6 ASW.

i think someone should select the 'going for the free food' option in the poll just for "the lulz"

Where are you from? Southern California is the pinnacle of life. You won't want to leave, I promise.

And many others... I know it's about LA but this could be done for anywhere in SoCal

or paraphrasing The Eagles, Southern California is a lovely place, from which you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave... 8)

Spoiler alert: I'm from OC! But I graduated from UT Austin and went to business school in the Midwest, so this will be my first time going to college in my home state.

Sorry, I quoted the wrong message! I was trying to talk to the 80% person not from California.

I've heard Austin is pretty sweet, where in the Midwest?

Unsolicited advise: Business casual (at most). You only wear a suit in SoCal if you're going to court or going to a funeral.

Anyone driving down from the LA area (westwood)? I need to carpool (or rent a car)? Send me a pm if you are :)

Feels good to be checking in here. Definitely excited for ASW. I was an anteater, and I live right down the street from the school so if anyone has any questions about the area I can definitely help out.

You going to ASW? What's it going to take to get that 80% up?

33% sure, but I really want to like UCI. Hoping for ASW to convince me, not just with what they have to say but also with good food and swag.

Anyone have any comments/recommendations for housing? I read through some previous threads and it sounds like the private communities are worth it but its hard to tell without actually seeing them in person.

Does anyone know where US News got the tuition number they are using ($51,211)? I know it's different than both the in and out of state tuition for 12-13. Wonder if they are planning a hike?
