I got 5k solicited. One other user on here with my exact numbers 3.3/165 got bumped from 0 to 45k


^That was the one that threw me a little bit haha.


URM?

Also someone in this thread got a big bump with a sub-3.0, figure they must be URM as well.

I'm a non-URM and got a decent-sized unsolicited bump as a sub-3.0. 170+ LSAT though.

Thoughts?


Incorrect. For the Mouth of Chem, as of a month or two ago ago (right when all the articles came out about 'lowest applications since whenever') we were one of only four schools in the country to have more applicants than last year (and we hadn't even hit peek application time yet).

Makes me wonder if I submitted my SIR a couple days too early. Regardless, I'm stoked with $35,000 a year and can't wait to visit in April.

I had my scholly increased from 3/4 to full about a month after I submitted my SIR.

B123 what is your GPA? What does the SIR do exactly? Do we have to withdraw from all other acceptances we have received? Or is that not until the seat deposit? I haven't had the time to actually look at it, and I don't want to withdraw as of yet due to the fact I feel some schools may not consider UCI's scholarship offer is competitive due to the fact it isn't ranked yet.

It's just a statement of intent to register. Non binding and there are no seat deposits. It helps them get an idea of their class.

I mean I understand that, but does it require withdrawing from our other offers? Or is that not needed until a seat deposit? I was holding out until my visit to do my SIR for fear it meant withdrawing everywhere else.

And again, I'm pretty sure there isn't a deposit. As you can see above, there is nothing mandating withdrawal. I don't know any schools that make you withdraw from other schools. I've actually heard several stories of people starting classes, getting in off the waitlist somewhere and going to that school.

Chaseink's increase was from a few years ago, he posted in here earlier stating he is a 2L and he had full ride at USC and UCI. But thanks for posting the info, it doesn't look too daunting so I could do it tomorrow. I always heard when u deposit you have to withdraw from schools who have issued an acceptance(wailtlist is ok to hold on too) but I was never sure.

+1

UCI doesn't make you deposit or withdraw.

One can send the SIR, apply for housing, and then all of a sudden decide to go someplace else in the summer (e.g. getting off a waitlist).

Yeah, nope. You will just lose seat deposits anywhere you've paid one. Some people that have done what I described above do end up losing tuition money and such but some people think its worth it for their dream school.

And I know ChaseInk is a 2L, I was just curios since it was post SIR.

To those who are looking strongly at UCI, anyone contemplating a dual degree? JD/MBA or JD/MPP? Might not be the most financially prudent decision, but still something worth considering.

I'd love to do a JD/MBA but I don't really have the time nor the money. Do you know if you need a GMAT?

yeah i looked into it, you need a GMAT. plus UCI MBA isn't that prestigious (ranked in the 30s i believe), even if it weren't so expensive/time consuming/messing up the law school curriculum.

They waive the GMAT/GRE if you are a 1L, which is why this has my attention. Nonetheless, the prestige factor (or slight lack thereof) for Merage is an issue, since we all know this is the whole point of B School.
