Do you know if they would offer any need based aid for people off of the waitlist? I think I read somewhere about it but now I can't find any info.

Edit: just saw in the waitlist email that need based may be given to people on the waitlist if there is any money.

I read the threads from previous years. Some people got offered money from the waitlist...even sizable chunks, however it's kind of a toss up...if you make it really clear in LOCI that Ucla is your top choice no matter what, they won't feel the need to offer you any money, but then if you don't make your commitment to the school clear, you might not get off the waitlist. I think the people who get money off the waitlist are mostly people who were Waitlisted for yield protection reasons. I wouldn't count on getting any money unless your numbers are pretty high.

From what I've read from past years, it's always phone call

Pardon my ignorance, but does a surge of acceptances usually come immediately after mid April due to accepted students choosing to go elsewhere and freeing up space? If so, how many spaces are we usually looking at?

I have very extensively combed through ucla waitlist threads from past years and based on what people said, there is a round of folks who get in after the first deadline, then another round after the second deadline (mid June) and then a few more over the summer. Hard to know how many spaces there will be but the dean of admissions has said that each year they take anywhere from 10 students to 1/4 of the class from the waitlist...so we will see! I think we will start seeing some movement from the waitlist in late April and throughout May.

Congrats~! Was financial aid information communicated to you?

Also, I have slightly higher # than clinton, so I might have a chance at this.

Any movement for people this week? If so, did you submit a LOCI?

For people who have gotten in from the WL, have you received a fair scholarship? Thanks in advance.

(pm-ing might be more comfortable.)

Every day I don't get a call from UCLA, I shrivel up and die a little more. :(

Has anyone else interviewed but has yet to receive any kind of call or follow up. I'm concerned that that's a bad sign lol.

on the one hand, it's worse if we haven't heard anything at all, on the other hand, last year people who were interviewed said all they really asked was "why UCLA" and basically "if we admit you will you come here?" I think it's kind of a yield protection thing. Idk about you guys, but I've made it very clear in my LOCI that I would absolutely accept if they offered me a spot so I would be surprised if they felt the need to interview me to ask that. Although I still haven't heard anything from them so who really knows?
