I'm seeing a lot of people on the UCLA waitlist on this thread. We have a UCLA Waitlist thread here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=240752 check in if you want to obsess more about it like the rest of us!

Still no cause to check in here, but I was going through last year's thread in anticipation of it and found this:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=225363

For some schools WL actually looks like pretty decent news! A lot of them have higher acceptance rates for applicants off the WL on LSN than from RD.

^^ thx for finding that :)
---------------------
To summarize the last three pages really quickly:

svx is winning this WL championship games at the moment at 7 WLs--I'm not sure whether we shld be celebrating you or giving you a hug :oops: (btw, which district?)

Second place, a 4-way tie btwn (5 WLs)
District 1: Splitters (wichita)
District 2: Reverse Splitters (me)
District 5: below both (weaver32, terrier)

My cycle is half over, so I might have a shot at hitting 7 or 8 WL (although I don't want to admit this)

What is UCLA's stance on coming off of the waitlist? Since I was admitted to higher ranked programs (both out of state), I withdrew my application so that someone who really had their eyes set on UCLA would have a better shot.

Low LSAT, high GPA, so district 2 I believe? And if count the Cornell Reserve, that will be 8 WLs
btw, 9 pending

Thank you! So considerate of you :). I'm not sure how UCLA uses its waitlist but I think we still have a good shot! I hear that UCLA Waitlists a lot of students, many who outright get accepted to better schools (like yourself). I think it's mainly a YP thing to make sure they are really getting students who want to go to UCLA no matter what. I was reading past threads from UCLA waitlist and most people who get off the waitlist have an "interview" where they are basically asked "if we accept you, will you matriculate here?"

Non preferred... I feel like that bag of broccoli you throw in the crisper and then forget about for 6 months.
