Is it a bad sign if we haven't been asked to interview? Hahah



Ugh that's exactly what I'm thinking too.


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?


Ok cool thanks same here!! That makes sense. Fingers crossed! Alsooo if we miss the call do u think they email us to notify us?

I was admitted off the waitlist last Thursday. I was interviewed and was asked basic informational questions, 'Why UCLA,' and basically learned that they're trying to gauge applicants interest in the program. I had sent in a couple LOCIs leading up to the interview. Good luck all! :D

I want to send in another LOCI as I haven't sent in once since the deadline passed (I've sent three already though). I don't really have anything new to report to them. Is it redundant/silly to send in another one? I just feel like if this is the time they are pulling people off the waitlist, I want to be at the forefront of their minds.

I sent in my first LOCI right before the first seat deposit. I was thinking about sending my second around the time the final deposit is due. Thoughts? Also, what else is there to say? "Hi, I'm writing to reiterate my continued interest in UCLA?" I was very clear in my first LOCI that I would unequivocally go to UCLA if given the chance.

For those who have been accepted off the waitlist. Are you matriculating? Did you get offered any $$?

Got asked for an interview on Monday, interviewed on Thursday, and 2.5 hours after the interview, I got a call from Rob Schwartz! Didn't think the interview went well, but glad to be accepted! GPA: 3.8 from Cal, LSAT 161.

Is anyone getting good money off the waitlist? I heard some people only got 5k per year 15k total or nothing.

Did they call or email you to request an interview?

That's what I got, 15k total. I figured I'd get something, just because I know they like to flaunt the percentage of students who receive aid/scholarships. After I got the acceptance email (day after the call), I asked about merit scholarships, and Rob said there weren't many funds left and to email him my previous scholarship offers from other schools.

I think it totally depends on what your other options are and what you are looking for in a law school. I'm very interested in the CRS program and I don't think there are any other programs that compare to it so for me it would be worth sticker, but you might have entirely different goals!

Don't do sticker, it will mess up your future, but I'm sure you know this already. Did you show your other offer?

Just got an email to interview this week! I've sent in 2 LOCIs both letting them know UCLA is far and beyond my first choice. Fingers crossed this is a good sign!
