Congrats! Being accepted so soon after being WL -- sounds like they really wanted you and were just making sure they had a spot in their class.

Based on UCLA's response time thus far this cycle I suspect they will have a very broad definition of "mid-May"

I really can't figure out why they are so behind.

with thousands of applications, maybe they mispalced a few? i am seriously suspecting this as a possibility...


I think that if you haven't heard a peep in a while, just call and ask.

Congrats! Both are great options, but $ and "fit" would probably be the deciding factors. I'm asuming you've gotten some $ at USC -- is UCLA going to offer any money?

I'm still waiting...

Just called them actually and the woman literally said "hmph" when my info popped up on her screen.

She said she'd try to get back to me via e-mail since I am abroad by the end of the day with an update on my status OR a possible decision.

Went complete 11/3.

edit: Waitlisted via e-mail at 3:05 pm PST

DietCoke wrote:it's getting really ridiculous and im really running out of patience. how can they admit people off the waitlist before giving regular applicants a decision? shouldnt they review all the files before going to the waitlist, since waitlisted applicants have already been reviewed?


Full disclosure - I am on the WL....BUT, i completely agree that there is no reason RD applicants should not have heard back at all given that it is the end of May already.

Have we received any more decisions here (RD or WL)?

EDIT: Just got in off the WL. Now just hoping they have some $ still available.

I think WL and rejections are sent by email. Acceptances are by phone call.

Did anybody here have a phone interview with Dean Scwartz? Interested to know how it went and if it affected your outcome at all.

Awk.

They're really on the ball this year. Too bad they didn't include GPAs and LSATs too.
