So if I have a 159 and waitlisted I have 0% chance of getting in basically. Why would they waitlist me in the first place? Would they just have rejected me?

Pay me for 6 weeks of study time and I will gladly retake. You can PM me to find out where to send the $3,000...


Retake.

That's about how much I make every six weeks (I feel you brother, it sucks to be poor) and I retook twice.

Retake.

You probably have a 75th percentile GPA, right?

I agree that this is what UCLA seems to be shooting for this cycle. Throwing significant money at splitters, atypical for UCLA.


So I guess anyone on the WL with a 167 is probably not going to get in, why hurt their own median?



I got accepted with 167/3.87 w/money,,, don't loose hope with a 167

WL here. Anyone know how an additional LOR is supposed to be sent? (All the WL FAQ says is: "With respect to new letters of recommendation, they should only be sent if you strongly believe that they illuminate substantially different aspects to your candidacy not covered by the previous letters submitted on your behalf.") I already maxed out with two in my original application, so I can't send it via LSAC. Should I just have the writer send it himself?

Yes you or the writer can just send it directly to the Admissions Office and they will add it to your file. They did for me.

Does any one have any recommendations for the interview? What should I expect?

And if my LSAT is low (GPA is high), should I expect any financial aid if accepted?


Do you mind sharing your stats? Or you could pm them if that'd be more comfortable for you :)... I'm still hoping for an interview -- it seems it's basically a precursor for acceptance. Dean Schwartz is nice, just be confident, respectful but assured, and, though cliche, yourself.

Accepted off of the WL last week! Pretty pumped about it, as UCLA was the school that I had originally set my sights on when I began the law school application process!

Thinking back about what was said at the event....i believe they have about 275-280 commits?

I think they may have room for 10-15 more

HOUSING:

I presume the daughter referenced below is an undergrad, but this listing may still be helpful if you want to move to Westwood and just get settled for a few months before signing a full-year commitment.

Hello,
My daughter has a sublet around UCLA for fall of 2013. If you know of folks in need of temporary housing around UCLA, please pass along. If you're interested, please contact Athena directly at email below.
--------------------
We're looking to sublet one space (female only) in a 1 bedroom/1bath apartment in Westwood, Los Angeles, this fall. The room is shared with two other female UCLA students. The apartment has a large living room and a kitchen with great natural light. Located on Landfair Ave near Strathmore Dr, the apartment is only a 5-10 minute walk from UCLA's campus and Westwood. Rent is $500/month before utilities (gas, electricity, internet). Approximate time: September 23 (the beginning of UCLA's Fall 2013 quarter), to the end of the year.
If Interested, please contact Athena at bongoathenahuang@gmail.com (mailto:bongoathenahuang@gmail.com)
