Congrats! Glad someone is breathing some new life into this thread. It's been pretty dead!

Agreed--congrats! Would love to see this thread to get as lively as some others.

Thank you! Trust me - I've been stalking this thread hoping to get the chance to join in! I got a bitter rejection from USC a couple of weeks back, so this acceptance is just that much sweeter. UCLA (b/c of the Epstein program and CRS specialization) has always been my top choice so the wait has been worth it!!

Hooray! I know how agonizing the wait in the applicants thread has been, it's nice to see multiple people are getting movement!

Congratulations! Nice to hear some good news. This cycle seems to have taken a frustrating turn for a lot of people.

Are scholarships sent via email? Planning on emailing them inquiring about the status of my scholarship consideration. For those of you who did this, did you guys mention the scholarship amounts and deadlines for other schools you got into? I'm $62,500 at NYU and $120k at USC and wondering if I should mention those numbers in my inquiry.

P.S. did you all get an email before your actual scholarship called a "Provisional Award Letter?"

Hi Everyone,

Hi, I'm a current 2L at UCLA. I'll answer any questions anyone might have. Also, if you're moving to Westwood early, I'm subletting my half of a 2BR/2BA apartment (so you get 1BR/BA) for June/July in Westwood. It's located on Veteran, on the edge of Westwood Village and is within walking distance to everything you need, including groceries. Furnished apartment with all cookware, etc.

Parking included and within a short drive to Century City, Santa Monica, Culver City, etc.

Asking $1,400/month which includes all utilities, high speed internet, and TV.

Email me for more details!

I just got the ePAL too, which doesn't reflect any scholarships as of now. I know I can't expect aid info right away (considering I was accepted 2 days ago; haven't even received my hard copy letter or welcome packet yet), but I'm really hoping for some generosity! They know I'm going to a PILP student/eventual PI lawyer... I'm going to need all the $ help I can get!

I wonder if there are materials we need to be reading. Other ASWs mock classes had "homework"

You should also find your way over to this thread viewtopic.php?f=45&t=244462&start=200

Literally does not matter. Assuming your question was serious.

UCLA says come back after seat deposits, which Dean S warned me about, but still disappointing.


But how do you negotiate after you've already paid their seat deposit? Does UCLA allow you to deposit at more than one school?

How many here are for sure going to UCLA?

Also, I'm not on Facebook. Thoughts on if it's worth it to get back on just to join the group?

There's not really any useful I formation on FB. Mostly just new admits introducing themselves.
