I think their topic is very specific so I'm not sure if it's okay to submit a DS in their optional addendum (my DS deals with religious and cultural discrimination, if that helps!)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!! :)


I wrote a diversity statement about my service experience in the disabilities sector that would help me contribute to the Public Interest program!

I heard in less than 2 weeks, so I think it depends


Do you know if this is true for ED applicants as well?

Hey thanks for the info! Do you think (or does anyone know) if it would be bad that I submitted my diversity statement in the socio-economic disadvantage addendum? (Not the disability addendum) I wrote about religious and cultural discrimination so I thought that was more "socio-economic" than "disability"... any help would be appreciated! :oops:

In today, I missed the call but saw it on the status checker. Applied October 11th. Seriously considering the double Bruin life!

Congrats to everyone who's been accepted! Any chance there's anyone who went complete early Oct. who's still waiting to hear? Should I keep holding onto my small shred of hope?

That would be me. Applied in September, had a weird delay in going complete that makes me think they forgot about me, mb that's what happened with the decision as well :D

Any idea if applying for the Distinguished Scholars Program will effect the timeline for decisions? Would they tell me if I'm in before they make decisions for the scholarship?

Did anyone interested in public service apply/not apply for the Epstein program? I graduated last year, so my relevant experience consists of college leadership and volunteer positions, and a couple internships. Is that enough for me to apply? Do any KJDs or one gap year students apply or have a chance of getting into the program?

I also don't know if they'll think it's strange if I don't apply for it since I clearly have an interest in PI. I'm considering noting in my Why UCLA that I hope to apply for it in my 1L year if I decide not to apply now. Thoughts?

I'm also interested in PI and did NOT apply for the Epstein program. I'm applying straight out of college and it said that preference would be given to people with full-time service in PI or government (i.e. not me!), so I figured my time was best spent getting the app in early. I got in and had really quick turnaround (submitted Nov. 3, accepted Nov. 9), so I don't think it hurts.

I was wondering this too. Making me nervous now seeing November completes being accepted. I'm trying to chalk it up to applying to the program :P

Our personal statements have to be 12 font, but do the rest of our writing supplements have to be as well? :shock:
