Postby theilluminati » Mon May 06, 2013 10:35 am

I would love to be a bruin this fall! If you feel the same way and plan to ride out the UCLA wait list, please join this thread and share your thoughts and updates.

Here's to being hopeful and optimistic about getting off the wait list!

For those of you that have visited, can you share what you liked/what makes this your top choice? Just want to hear some of the plusses, besides location, CA, and job placement...thanks! (BTW, SoCal native--I've been to UCLA before, just not UCLA law). Thanks!

if you are waitlisted and are providing an additional rec letter, can they directly mail it to the school or does it still have to go through LSAC?

Joining the club. Not getting an immediate ding was already something of an achievement but unfortunately it has lulled me into believing I actually have a shot at getting in, which will leave me devastated when I don't.

I was reading other Wait list threads and came across the UVA spreadsheet--so I copied it and made a UCLA one here

Please feel free to fill it out. Make sure you log out of Google beforehand or it will record your personal google account

I am quite curious about what the UCLA wait list looks like.

Thanks for making the table. Man I hate how google docs always fuzzes up the cursor alignment.

Just got the waitlist email. Excited and frustrated all at the same time. UCLA has been my dream school since the beginning.

I sent my LOCI via snail mail. Would it be too much if I called to see if it was received?

i had this experience with another school - i had my supervisor send in an additional LOR via snail mail. I emailed said school about a week later just to be sure it arrived and was told that they do not have the resources to check each individual file for updated information (?!) it was a school of similar size and standing as UCLA so you could get a similar response - on the other hand, the admissions office at UCLA is incredibly friendly and helpful, so they may be more forthcoming with your request.

Perhaps you can send them an email asking them if they've received it, but also attach it as a PDF to be sure.

I called and ask, they said it hadn't been received (odd since I actually had it dropped off in person). So I am following up with a PDF version. Thanks!

Hi everyone! I expected UCLA to reject me due to my not-too-impressive LSAT scores, so I was surprised when I found out I was waitlisted. I'm really hoping that I get off the waitlist. I actually scheduled a tour tomorrow at UCLA law school, and I was wondering if anyone here who's taken a tour there could tell what it was like. Were you the only one, or was the tour conducted in a group? What questions did you ask?

I want to write a LOCI afterwards as well. TLS recommends sending it physically, but I'm worried that it'll get buried with other mail before anyone can read it. Should I send it both ways, electronically and physically?

Oh, I also heard of people arranging interviews as well. I didn't know this was possible. How does one get an interview with UCLA admissions?

It sounds like they approach you.
