Admitted on 11/21 by phone call! I went complete on 11/14 so I was surprised but ecstatic about the quick turnaround. My LSAT is above 75th and 50<GPA<75. Southern California native so this is definitely a top choice for me.

Also applied to Epstein! Has anyone heard news from Epstein committee yet?

Last year's thread seemed to show scholarship info coming out in February so I think we have a bit to wait. But with FAFSA opening earlier this year that may change the timeline

Applied to Epstein as well, no news -- in previous years, it looks like most acceptances came rather late in the game, closer to when scholarship info is out.

I just got the call! I was super nervous because I got an email yesterday that I forgot to attach an addendum. Went complete 11/17 after applying 11/15. Hoping to visit soon Cali would be awesome

Kinda sucks, since I'm planning on visiting only if the scholarship is hefty.

Nope haha I was exactly at LSAT median and -.01 for GPA. I think I had a good PS/Why UCLA. I'm also from NY so could be looking for some OOS kids

Do you think it's worth sending it's worth sending a why UCLA. It's been 42 days since complete. I've had radio silence from my top choices so it'd be definitely a strong consideration if I don't get in. GPA =25, LSAT<75

UCLA Law is my reach school because I'm a splitter (great GPA, sad LSAT). I applied ED and had my interview yesterday and it was very chill.

Any advice on how to follow up?

When I asked in the interview, they said people who applied ED were all interviewed. So def possible to get in without one.

But like I'm hoping I do get in, like today. Next week. Soon.

I, along with many others, were accepted without interview. From what i understand UCLA only tends to interview if they have follow-up questions or for ED applicants. Maybe also if they just want to get a better sense of an applicant..
