I discussed this in a previous post, but yes, looking at the decision timeline from previous years, by late February/early March, any applicants who haven't heard back are basically facing a waitlist or rejection. It seems like the people who have not heard anything now are essentially being considered for the final handful of spots.

According to mylsn they accept about as many January apps in March as they do in January.

I don't think it means anything just yet. It doesn't seem like UCLA has a pattern like some of the top T14 schools. However, it is true that the auto-admits are getting their notifications very quickly.


Would sending a loci be a bad idea? I never answered any essays on the application.



I went complete mid-December and sent in a LOCI two weeks ago, but I was sure to have something legit to talk about

Anyone here already accept their UCLA admission? I'm probably 90% going to choose UCLA and curious what other TLS-er I'm going to meet there. Maybe this is a little bit early to ask.

UCLA is a legit option, but it's too early for me to decide.

I'm SO happy. I got accepted to UCLA last week, but was so excited I forgot to post about it! I'm 25%>LSAT<50% and GPA>50%

Dean Schwartz is incredibly nice. And for me UCLA is a TOP choice because geographically, it's where I want to be and academically, they have the exact clinics and legal specializations I want. The Williams Institute and the Epstein Program are also HUGE draws. If I get into Epstein, I 99% will go.

I'm also very interested in the Williams Institute. I wrote about it on my app and they've been definitely reaching out in different ways regarding it, so I'm thinking it was maybe influential in the admissions decision.

Congratulations! When did you go complete? It looks like we have pretty similar stats, so I was wondering. I wrote a bit about wanting to pursue a Specialization in Law & Philosophy because 1) that is something I am pretty interested in & 2) I didn't want to just be a set of numbers, so I'm hoping that helps me a little.

Anyone else still waiting? I went complete in mid-December and had an interview late January.

So even after the interview they requested and furnishing them with very significant offers (PM for details) from Wash U., ND, and UMN, UCLA gave me NO merit-aid. Which is disappointing, as there is no way I can make UCLA work now.

Was it just a cold no? Or let's talk about it later?

Pretty much no cold:

"I’m sorry to inform you that you have not been selected by the Scholarship Committee to receive a merit award. We still hope you will join our UCLA Law community this fall. Please stay in touch with any questions."

I don't know if I'm going to approach them with other offers (say, from Texas) if I get anything else significant, but I'm pretty hesitant to. If they had given me even 5-10K, that at least would have started a dialogue, but this is a straight stonewall.

Sorry if you've already posted elsewhere in this thread, but could I ask what your numbers are? Feel free to PM or just give ranges/estimations if you'd rather not say. Also, how do you feel the interview went?

Interview went okay I thought. Not my best ever, not my worst. But it was over Skype, and I hate those. Anyway I think my numbers are in my profile, so I might as well put them here: 168/3.7. So you know, around their median. I wasn't expecting huge money, just something to make doing UCLA from way out of state feasible.

Thanks! Went complete 1/30. It has been the fastest turn around time from any of the schools I applied to. :)

I also applied to the Epstein Program so I think that it kind of served as a "Why UCLA?"

Went complete today. I'm at both the 25ths so I'm assuming a rejection here... ho hum. Taking the LSAT again and applying next cycle but still keeping my apps in as a shot in the dark.

What is their interview like? I wasn't aware they did one until I found this thread. Who is the interviewer?
