This is not accurate. I met at least one student who got in off of the wait list for the class of 2014.
Same here. May have been the same person, but from what I remember he was ready to attend elsewhere and then mid-summer he was accepted.
Not the same since mine was a girl...
Interesting. I thought during ASW (first day, morning, specifically Dean Chem ~20-minute talk after the Con Class) said that they had a pool of waitlisted people for the admission cycle 2010-2011, but they did not take any of those people in. This was a reply in regards to how UCI Law is maintaining a high caliber class structure (statement was to address the concerns that UCI Law will not accept too many people for profit and diminish their quality of education). As such, I thought it was an odd statement. I could be zoning out at the time, but my notes indicate otherwise. There is the possibility that I misunderstand as well, as he could be implying that they would not let too many people in because the facilities and faculty cannot withstand the increase students without sacrificing quality.
In whatever case, it seems that my original statement is not the case in light to facts presented by both Lawgeekgrl and Martorem, so I will edit my post to reflect this. I do apologize for any harm caused by this statement and fully acknowledge that I was mistaken. What I can say is this (from a credible source), the waitlist for UCI Law last year was larger than what they were intending. As such, it is highly likely that they will be changing how they conduct their waitlist process for this year.
I do stress that I am not the end all in regards to info. Just what I heard and what I understand the info to be. Also, it is through work that gold can be extracted from a piece of rock -- aka review of info/statements .
Sidenote Fact (I forgot to mention this and thought I should): Dean Austin told me that they accepted a few transfer students last summer (specifically, one from Chapman Law and one from Whittier Law).
