Regarding ASD I don't know the whole schedule but I know there is an "after-party" planned at Dave & Busters, which should be a blast.

Looking forward to meeting some of you next Thursday!


Dave & Buster's? Isn't that like Chuck E. Cheese's? That actually sounds awesome.


It's Chuck E Cheese's + alcohol. I've also blown more money at a D&B's in a single visit than at any casino.

Really sad I'm not able to be there for the official admitted students activities. My schedule wouldn't allow it, so I'm going out on Tuesday and leaving on Thursday. Anybody going to be in town a bit early interested in getting together sometime Wednesday? (PM if you'd like, but if there are a few of us who will be there Wednesday, it might be easier to keep it in the forum.)

Did anyone else just receive an email from a professor at UCI saying "congrats" and offering info if needed? Or was that actually a personalized email that I just got?

did anyone else who applied hasn't heard back? or is the admissions ignoring me personally?

I wouldn't be too stressed about not hearing back yet, lawschoolnumbers.com shows WAY less decisions than any other school to which I applied.

Additionally, UCI says that they didn't start reviewing applications until mid-January since they hired a new admissions director.

Also, the admissions deadline for UCI just ended on March 1, so they may have waited until the very end to start reviewing applications in a certain range.

I didn't get one. I think they are all on your jock, TLS wizard.

Then again, I did fall all over myself telling Ms. Austen that UCI was my first choice and that I was beyond ecstatic, so I doubt they feel the need to keep trying to court me! :mrgreen:

Ha! Yes. I love the law school courtship. Especially from the "pretty girls".

I kinda did the same thing.

"I'm so pleased! I'm so excited! I'm so enthused! I'm so interested!"

I'm so redundant! I'm so transparent! :D

YES! I'm not the only post-acceptance phone call goofball on the thread! Hopefully Ms. Austen doesn't keep first impressions too close to heart, or she'll think I'm a total spaz.

Oh, and Dave and Busters is just like Chuck E. Cheese, except with way better games and lots of draft beer. That's what makes it so magical.

I can't wait then! God, I can't wait to get out of Provo, UT... haha

Dean Chemerinsky called a bunch of admitted students a couple of weeks ago and I sounded like a TOTAL idiot on the phone. I wasn't sure who it was when he called at first (his name is long and I wasn't getting the best cell reception, OK!?) and so he had to repeat it twice and then it clicked and I started apologizing profusely. Haha, I sounded like a tool.

Apparently, I called her right when she was taking a sip of coffee, so we got off to a GREAT start! :D

Really, though, she was nice as can be on the phone.

received my ding letter today dated 3/24, which is amazing because that's exactly when my LOCI to Irvine was dated and sent. I even sent it to the Assistant Director of Admissions and he sent me a confirming email back saying that my file was still under review and that was all they could tell me, but he could have just gone ahead and told me not to bother if they were gonna send me a decision letter the same damn day...

what a waste of time

well, dinged yesterday, so much for trying so hard to get in, wrote all essays specifically for uci, and ps for other schools were all based on them, even took time off work to visit the admissions office, after dreaming to get in for so long, looks like my life will not play out how I have planned, sigh

Tomorrow is my birthday. If your prediction is correct, I'm sending you a bottle of booze. A really nice one. Irvine is by far my #1 choice.


Think positive -- gotta remain positive in this game. I'm sure you'll get in.


I'm still in disbelief that I get to post this right now.....but I just got the call!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best birthday present ever. snichols16, I don't know if you are some kind of magical TLS wizard, but I thank you for your kind words and apparently earth-moving karmic presence. Technically your prediction is a few hours early, but I'll make an exception to our contract out of good faith. PM me your address and preference :D

Red_alertz, I assume you prayed for me when I asked for it a few weeks ago, so I'll buy you a round or two after you get accepted.

Good luck to all who are waiting!


two rounds i will never see now... i thought about replying that i may never see that round or two when you first posted your msg, but that was such a scary thought i forced it out of my head, guess reality is what it is, harsh and depressing for me

So sorry. It makes me sad to see you not make it in because I know you really wanted to be at UCI. I wish they had a way to factor desire to be there into their acceptance equation somehow. Good luck to you - do you know where you be going next year or are you going to wait it out until next cycle?
