same thing happened to me. the voicemail was pretty ambiguous as to what he wanted to talk about. but i called back right away and he was super friendly, and told me i was admitted. simple as that.

also, i'm in socal and he offered me the all expense paid trip too. (i guess for me that just means free hotel stay).

Nah, he won't think you're nuts. He'll think you're committed and will offer you a 200% scholarship, a new Maserati and a guaranteed biglaw job.

Happy to be admitted! Wondering if it's a bad sign that I didn't get the expense paid invite to UCLA or a scholarship offer on the phone? Maybe I can negotiate for scholly money? REALLLLLLLLY wanna go here:)

Has anyone successfully negotiated additional scholarship money?

Does anybody know how UCLA feels about LOCI before any decision has been made on you application? Has anybody sent one in even though they haven't been put on the WL? Has anybody been successful with one?

Would like to know this as well. Also, who should we address the letter to? I received a huge scholarship from WUSTL ( almost full tuition) and a decent scholarship from Texas... I got nothing from UCLA. Slightly offended, especially since someone with my exact same numbers got 60k

sorry i can't be more helpful, but a UCLA 1L friend of mine said that he felt building a rapport with dean schwartz was instrumental in his admission. i can confirm via my phone call with him that he's a really friendly person and seems genuinely nice (though it's his job to seem that way, of course). but i'd say go for it, and i would address your LOCI to the dean himself and maybe CC admissions as well, just my $.02 though.

in other news, i got my admitted students packet today, which is quite attractive. official acceptance letter, UCLA Law magazine, and UCLA Law bulletin (this last one contains all the standard newly admitted student info).

Got my waitlist email last night, and I'm SUPER EXCITED. That's right, all-caps excited. If you had my GPA, you'd be excited too.

I can verify that Dean Schwartz is genuinely nice; I've met him a few times at various recruiting events and he's been really encouraging. In the spirit of the day, I'd offer him this fine verse as my LOCI 8)

Roses are red
Violets are blue
If I were the dean
then I'd admit you

Ugh, I have the feeling I'm about to get smacked in the face with so many wait lists I'm not gonna know what to do with them all. UCLA included. Guess it's better than getting smacked with a bunch of rejects... I guess.

I just started the email off with "Dear Admissions Committee:" and sent it to Dean Schwartz. He responded in like two minutes saying that he would forward it to the scholarship committee. He was super nice about it. I haven't heard anything since then though. I told them about my offer of 76,500@Texas. Since then I've received 45000@Michigan and 129000@WUSTL, so I'm thinking about emailing him again in the next few days. I really want to go to UCLA, but no way would I go at sticker when I have these other offers.

Accepted today! No mention of scholarship money or all-expense paid trip. My numbers aren't spectacular, but I wouldn't mind a free trip since I'm from the east coast. I went complete 1/14 (I think) for those wondering and I had a fee waiver.

In via phone call just now. Still not sure I'd seriously consider UCLA without $$, but I think it is really cool that the Dean himself calls admits.

Also, if there were scholarship $$ being offered, I assume it would have been mentioned in the phone call? Is that the general consensus?

Accepted a little while ago by phone, with $$$$$$! (The Dean told me about my scholarship -- no idea if he does that for everyone.)

Submitted 1/9.

Sorry to whomever I just sent that PM too! :oops: Meant for that to be a post.

Got the admit call earlier today and the dean did mention the merit scholarship.

Waitlisted today via email. Going to withdraw, as I was iffy about moving to the West coast anyway. Congrats to the recent admits, and good luck to everyone else!

Does UCLA email rejections or snail mail? I am a super long shot but still praying. Id love a WL letter, no way I get a phone call!

waitlisted via email...not too surprised. Not sure if I'm gonna ride the WL as I'm kind of over living in LA. Good luck to everyone else!
