I was accepted last week with no scholarship offer either :( I thought for sure I would get something since someone with my exact stats got 60k

This is a little disconcerting...I hope to get a call sometime soon since I went complete early November, but with my stats, the outlook is bleak! Congratulations to all of those who made it, and hopefully I'll be joining all of you there :)

I went complete at the end of October and also haven't heard anything yet. The lack of status checker is only adding to my nerves...

Yeah, someone with lower stats than mine got $97k (and several others got $75k), so I'm pretty surprised to end up with nothing. Maybe they just sometimes forget to mention it in the phone call?

I was also thinking that since I'm not needs based that might be a factor

do they only accept by phone call this early on? or do they also accept by email as their email states when you apply? i applied ED and they said the'd have a decision 'by the end of december', so i'm on the edge of my seat and want to know what to expect.

I got a phone call and the acceptance letter the next day in the mail. Do not know if that is the only way they do it.

Good luck! If you get in, I will see you next year.

I don't understand how I got money from Texas, but not UCLA... especially since the COL is at least twice as expensive

Yeah, scholarship amounts seem to be somewhat of an enigma this year. I've been a bit confused at some of the offers I've received. I have a sneaking suspicion a lot of places are going to be scrambling this Spring to avoid a UIUC situation and perhaps UCLA is one of them...

What do you mean by a UIUC situation? I tried search but couldn't figure it out.

New development listed here, but paragraph 4 is the real problem:

I don't understand what UCLA is/was doing that was like UIUC that would affect scholarship offers?

What I mean is they end up scrambling in the Spring to try to make their medians. By UIUC situation, I meant median falling 5 points rather than fudged number cover-up exposed.

I have a battle with myself every day as to whether or not I should call them and ask what is going on with my app (complete 10/28, no word yet) but I know no good can come of it.

I feel like so may people with my complete date/ones after it have already been accepted, that silence from UCLA means I'm headed right for the WL :(

I'll be joining you in there it looks like (also complete 10/28). But again, it has only been a month and a half. We could both be sitting in the pile of some slow reviewer.

I feel like we're having very similar cycles (and ensuing neuroses).

I feel you on that one. VERY close to my experience

+2 for low GPA, MI, and Georgetown. C'mon, UCLA!
