sent 11/15. complete since 11/17...
I see those who applied way later than I did getting accepted...
still no word for me... I guess I am dinged or at best WL..


Almost the same stats here. 168 3.92. Except I've applied in late SEPT :shock: and complete since sometimes early october...

Should I be worried? They seem to have a pretty fast turn around this year and so far no a word. I know that my application is overall very good, I've gotten in faster than that at Berkeley, Cornell, Michigan, Gtown and a few others T20... (if no schools would have gotten back to me, I'd be freaking out about my PS-LORs-resume-etc. but I don't think there's anything wrong with those).

Thoughts?

I submitted on 11/2 (don't remember complete date right now), and I got an email around the week of the 20th asking me to clarify why I had checked I was convicted of a mistemeanor/ felony. I immediately emailed back and cleared it up, but I still haven't heard back from UCLA (169;3.89). Like you all, I've already heard back from G-town, Berk, NYU, and several other schools so I know it's not the rest of my app. Oh, well- can't win them all.

UCLA has been super inconsistent this cycle in my experience. I got in literally the day after I applied in September, then had to jump through hoops to get scholly $$$. Meanwhile plenty of people with my numbers haven't even gotten in, and others with lower have some big $$$. I wouldn't put too much stock into it, although a LOCI at the new year might not be a terrible idea for those still waiting. They seem to like people who show interest and reach out to them (at least in my case after I was admitted).

Im on the same boat as many of you. I submitted 11/15 and went complete 11/16. I too have heard nothing back. My numbers are borderline (168/3.55) so its possible they are waiting for December LSAT scores before making a decision on my app. Then again they may just be a bit inconsistent as some of you suggest.

I am in the same position! I applied 11/19 and my app. was complete on 11/20. I'm 169/3.83 and haven't yet heard back. It seems like there are quite a few of us with similar numbers and complete dates in this situation.

I went complete 11/6 and am also low borderline at 3.75 167. I have a feeling they're going to give a lot of borderline novembers their decisions sometime late January after they've processed December. So don't panic. Yet haha ;)

Bring on the New Year TLS. I'm gunna sip my champagne and wait with a hopeful smile :-)

Just got the waitlist email. 169/4.14. Public interest focused. I submitted in September.

A little bit surprised. Maybe yield protect? I can't be too sad - I already have offers from two T-14s and several other T-14 acceptances. Going to send the withdraw letter soon.

Good luck to everyone! :-)

Let's hope we all get good news. From the above, it looks like I'll probably get a waitlist at best...

Sorry to hear that, with fewer applicants though you may eventualy get accepted. Does WL come via email?

yes email. UCLA is a great school. i thought i'd be WL. it isn't a top top choice (due to location) but an excellent LS nonetheless!

I wouldn't be worried... I'm a 168/3.72, double major, strongish softs, traditional student, and I got in with a $20k/yr scholly. I'm sure they're just going through it in batches and/or giving your apps a second (/3rd/4th/5th) review. Assuming you wrote a strong PS, have some good softs, and have no C&F issues I wouldn't be too concerned yet. Look on LSN, you guys are fairly in the happy green portion of UCLA (168 seems to be the magic LSAT number so far). I also submitted in mid November. Just give it time. I know the stress is awful :(

I don't understand UCLA I went complete on 11/19, 3.82/172 and I've heard nothing. Not trying to sound like a douche but wtf.

Maybe they know you're going to go to NYU or Columbia anyway so they figure "why bother?"

Eta: Do you actually want to go to UCLA?

Looks like a lot of YP to me. A sincere LOCI could completely change the game for a lot of you.
