Snail mail or email? Wow I thought theyd have a few waves of acceptances before rejections.


Snail mail. The letter is dated January 6th.


When did you apply? Went complete?

Just to clarify, was that need or merit?


Merit. I highly doubt I'll get any need based money.

Why? We're (almost) all classified as independent students through FAFSA.

In order for you to get need-based aid from UCI they require that you put your parents financial information on your FAFSA. Given my parents income (unless the fact that my dad is currently paying college or graduate school tuition for my three siblings means anything) I doubt I'll be getting any sort of need-based aid.

Yowza, I did not know that. None of the other schools I am applying to require my parent's info on my FAFSA. I wonder if it would be worth it to add my parent's info just for UCI? I don't want to hurt myself at the other schools. :?

I got between 10-13K per year and I'm 25% GPA/75% LSAT. I don't have an exact number because my parents got the letter and said "low 10s" over the phone to me.

I got a letter about financial aid and housing. Did any of you get that with your scholarship offer or separately? Trying to ascertain whether or not I can expect a scholarship.

45k/year merit scholarship via snail mail today. 17X/3.8X. Very tempting.

I was waitlisted at UCI today! I was pleasantly surprised because my LSAT score was not at their 25 percentile. It gives me hope for my cycle yet!
