You're lucky that you're actually IN evaluation....I went complete in 1/14 and am STILL AWAITING evaluation.

The fact that it's taking such a long time for them to reach a decision is definitely not any indication that they're going to WL- :x I've been given false hope that same way, and had closure, with dings from other UC schools. I used to reason the same way, that if they were going to reject me, they would've done so already...why such a wait?? But it's a cruel game they play, because they can.... :evil:

I've made the decision to NOT check my status checker like a maniac and just wait until the end of this month-- If there's any movement, I'll find out through here~ :wink:


Yea, amen to your last note. I'm tired of thinking about Davis day and night, and watching the clock 'til 6pm. I think I'll resolve to do the same and start living my life again, at least until end of April.

I was going to agree with you, but then I remembered that I had not checked today after 6. So I checked.

Still awaiting evaluation. >:-|

When is the first seat deposit due? I checked through this thread and saw April 15 somewhere. Is that right?

About to withdraw. Did you other people who withdrew send letters to the school notifying them, or does not paying the deposit suffice?

I've generally just emailed a quick statement (for my own records) saying to the school: I am writing to inform you that I will not be attending X school in the fall. Thank you for your time and consideration of my application - name.

A lot of times they send you a generic email back so you know they know too. It's good for your records and less awkward than a phone call. I also like to think that people like me waiting on schools like Davis, exist at all the other schools too, so its better to withdraw than wait for the deadline because maybe one of the people waiting hears back sooner and the agony ends.

Still waiting on a decision from Davis even though I deposited yesterday elsewhere. I'm angry with them but will most likely forgive them entirely and forget everything if they accept me.

Davis... PLEASE... put an end to this madness. We are all going to get diagnosed with borderline, or full-on OCD by the time school starts!!!

What's the highest merit/need based scholarship you guys have been offered by UC Davis this cycle?

applied 12/16/10

went under review 2-3 weeks ago.

Seat deposit is due today. Is everyone else bummed on wasting their money applying to Davis? We should have been notified of a decision by 4/1/11 at the latest.

I'm no auto-admit but I gave them $75 to review my application in a timely fashion. Implied contract = breached.
This is absurd.

I was a little irked and was tempted to write a complaint. I figured what's the point? They sure didn't have any problems collecting my $$.

ps. I applied 12/21 and I have yet to make it to the Evaluation process. I am still currently "awaiting evaluation."

$10,000 per year or total? Has anyone tried negotiating a scholarship w/them?

Lolz, Davis' status checker is a case study of ineptitude

Today mine reads: Last updated 12/22/10

And it will not take my username/password.

Winning.

Ugh. Status checker isn't working. Even though I applied almost 5 months ago, I'm probably STILL awaiting review.
