Per application complete email: It is difficult for us to predict when you will receive a final decision. We will make decisions through the end of April.

But, man, that was a nice then immediately scary feeling thinking that UCLA will have decided by 4/1. Being among the last decisions made can't mean anything good.

I still can't believe you applied in September with those numbers and haven't heard anything. If your application were a child, it would be crawling already. Your story alone is reason enough for me to skip UCLA in my early apps next year, even if I do increase my LSAT.

I got my decision back in January, so I no longer keep up to date with this thread. However, the question mark in "UCLA? 2011" is still perplexing to me.

The lack of decision from UCLA is perplexing to me as well.

For what it's worth, I called admissions today. I played dumb, she played nice. She said that "they will be making decisions until the end of April." And I said, "so, you are still admitting people, it's not just waitlist and rejects?" She said, "yes, until the end of April and then people are pulled from the waitlist up until the start of classes."

So that's the formal answer, we already know. It seems that the reality however, is that they've admitted who they want and now it's a matter of how many admits withdraw.

She asked my name, checked my file. said i was complete Feb 10th so she would expect that i hear back in the next two weeks. I mentioned that some deposits are due at other schools in two weeks as opposed to the end of April. She said that if I hadn't heard anything from the Dean within 2 weeks and really needed to know, it would be okay to e-mail him. I would never do that. On the very slim chance I'll be accepted, I'm not going to risk being inpatient.

Good luck to everyone!

So basically a Waitlist for everyone remaining if they're going to continue giving decisions until the END of April, that's after seat deposits are due for every single school. Way to go, UCLA. I'm really glad I was across town for undergrad...

Yeah, who knows why she said "you will probably hear something within 2 weeks." Could've been that she knew a decision had been rendered since she was looking at my file at the time. Or, maybe she was just trying to be responsive to my point about some deposits being due in 2 weeks.

Trying to be positive but it seems like it's been a while since anyone on the board has gotten the call.
