Agreed. I loved it. Totally informative, not too long, really nice down-to-earth students, beautiful weather, nice campus-- what more could you want?

If any of y'all get set on UCD, some of us have created a facebook group "UC Davis School of Law (King Hall) Class of 2012"

Why do I instantly get called out on my geographic origins every time I say y'all? It seems to be a pretty widespread thing.

Yeah I was born in San Diego and I still say it, but I also call soda "pop" sometimes too. I like to mix up my lingo and keep people guessing.

On topic: I hope those of you still waiting get the good news this week! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Just some random information: I just called regarding being 'under evaluation' for two months, and was told they hope to have all decisions out by the end of this month. As of really soon, they will be changing their deposit deadline to three weeks after acceptance.

Grants are based on how poor you are (or how poor your taxes say you were last year). I think the average is about 7k-9k, but if you are exceptionally poor and have a family or dependents it can go as high as 15k a year (that's the highest I have heard about).

Yup, that's what they did last year too. Towards the middle to end of this month pretty much everyone will know of their status.

yes also just called and spoke to a very nice woman who told me the same thing (but she didnt mention anything about extended deposit deadline). she seemed apologetic because shes clearly aware that most of us have other deadlines coming up on the 15th, but said that the office is working hard and is releasing decisions daily.

I hope this computer glitch doesn't bone Davis's yield (i.e. they took too long to process apps due to a tech error, then they accept a lot of people after 4/15, but those people had already committed--financially and mentally--to going somewhere else). These guys need to hurry up and give y'all the good news pronto!

My admit letter (dated March 27th) gave me a April 17th response deadline, so Davis took my later admit date into account.

Edit: After counting the days (which took an embarrassingly long time), it looks like Davis has started that 3 weeks post-acceptance policy. But you guys, unlike me, probably figured that out already.

Am I the only one who waits until "6:00:20 p.m." to check the status checker?

Supposedly some computer glitch wrecked hell on their application processing this cycle and they are tardy left and right. It took me like 4 months to get my app processed, so I'm sure you'll hear something soon. Maybe even today (I got the news on a Thursday IIRC). Good luck, Whitty, it would be awesome if you got into UCD!

I hope so! Maybe the "glitch" just deleted my entire file and they haven't noticed yet. I wouldn't be surprised. :oops:

You can always call to "verify that everything is on file" and just see what they tell you.

If you're able to check your status and it has your contact info and LORs, I doubt that is the problem. I hope they can speed through everyone's files at this point so that you all get answers. This is frustrating! I was part of the 6:00:20 club for several months too... it can be infuriating. I feel your pain.

I'm still waiting for several schools for which I'm well above the 75th %ile... and its even more frustrating (I think) because these school have no online status check. UCLA (which was a super-reach for me, granted) didn't even send me any notification that my file was complete!

Keep faith alive, guys.

I spoke to a student on the admissions committee last week. He told me that they still have piles of applications to process, but they should be through them soon.
