Maybe YP.


Several others have voiced similar situations. I think the honest truth is that they just haven't gotten through the pile yet and their process is kind of unorganized. This is a time of wild speculation though and really no one knows whats going on.

$200 isn't even gonna cover air-fare... It's too bad too, I think this is a school I'd love to see in person before making a decision but coming from the east coast and being damn near broke I can't justify that.

Has any accepted students gotten scholarship offers from UCLA yet? UCLA is my top choice right now, but I don't think I am willing to pay sticker price to go, plus living expenses in westwood is insane...

I believe the email said offers would go out in March.

Just got the email about the all-expense paid URM weekend. I'm really surprised they do this, but also really happy about it. lol

How much of a travel stipend for non-URM? I saw $200 earlier but was wondering if this was flexible based on where you're coming from?

Not sure. That's for a different event. This event is specifically for URMs.

I don't know if my waitlist was YP. I applied to the binding distinguished scholarship program so my interest was obviously evident. Oh well, guess I'm not going to be a double bruin

YP is so weird - is that truly whats going on here? How do they know if someone with strong numbers isn't simply a great candidate for them vs. a YP weak candidate (jdanz is a good example of this problem). I believe there is something behind the scenes we do not understand.

Also me and assassin have been waiting since like October for a response. Whats the deal? Are they just holding off on sending any rejections?

Yeah I'm waiting for the WL/ding. Not really tripping about it, I'd just like to know already instead of being strung along forever lol.

Did your email say anything beyond "more details to follow"?

Told me to mark my calendar for that weekend, said more details will follow and gave me contact info for any questions I might have in the meantime.
