Hey I'm looking through my papers for the seat deposit/withdrawal form and I cannot find it. Do you guys who were admitted remember when it was sent to you?

I just got the call also, but no scholarship was mentioned. Does that mean I won't be receiving any merit-based assistance? Thanks!

The call came today. My GPA is >3.9 and my LSAT is 169. Also, I don't know if it matters, but I'm URM.

Interested in this as well. I never got a confirmation email for receipt of my finaid docs. I emailed them about a week ago asking if they'd received them and never heard anything back. I'm going to call them to confirm receipt when they get back from lunch, but I'd be interested to know if others got confirmation emails.

As far as I know yes. That's all I've sent them at least.

Random rant: I've had to call UCLA about a few different things (housing, travel, housing, mostly) and I keep forgetting that they're three hours behind me. For whatever reason, my daily schedule usually clears up enough for me to make phone calls around 3pm my time, and it's right when they go on lunch! arghhh

I know a few pages back someone was asking if anyone else had success negotiating $ at ucla based on texas offers. I emailed dean Schwartz a copy of my offers at Texas (76.5), Michigan (45k), wustl (129k) and uiuc (120k) a few weeks ago and was just offered 67.5 k at ucla. Negotiating works! :mrgreen:

I'm still complete as of 10/25 with nothing but crickets. Anyone else in that time frame still heard nothing? (of course, I'll probably get waitlisted in the next hour just for having put this out there.)
