I am just now applying with a 175 LSAT 3.92 GPA. I know it's goodish stats but since this is so late in the game, could anyone tell me what they think my decision turnaround would be? It would be stressful to not hear until March or something. Thanks!

I applied around this time last year and heard back in march, unfortunately :(

BUT you have much higher numbers than me so you might get a much quicker response. Just letting you know that you MIGHT have to wait a little bit

You'll probably get WL, not because of timing but because your numbers are way too good.

I don't know if this is the place to ask, but do you guys share your scholarship info from other schools with UCLA? The admission email says you are welcome to do so, but I am not sure if sharing will put you at a disadvantage/advantage before UCLA scholarship comes out. Should I wait to do it?

Yeah this. Negotiations are meant for springtime when you have all your offers.

Hello all!

Any word on the grant application that the acceptance email said would become available in early January?

It took around 1.5-2 weeks after the acceptance email before I received my admit packet in the mail. Apparently it takes a few days after postmark for the packet to move through UCLA's mailing system before it's ultimately sent out. If it's been 3+ weeks and you still haven't gotten anything, then I'd maybe shoot them an email letting them know.

Potentially outing myself here (hi Dean Schwartz), but did anyone else get an email today inviting them to come to UCLA Law talks re:their specific interest? I'm quite set on International Law and I was forwarded a few upcoming talks that fall under that broad umbrella. It may just be because I'm a LA local so they know I'm in the area and can attend, but I thought it was a really nice gesture and am planning to attend one! Just checking in to see if any of my fellow TLSers will be showing up to any of them :D

Rejected last night. Just below both medians. Did not do a "Why UCLA/Programmatic Contribution"

First rejection, so it stings, but never had any real plans of attending.

Sorry :( I had my first rejection this week as well unfortunately.

Hoping that UCLA comes through for me because it's a top choice, however I did not write a "Why UCLA". Too late now?

It couldn't hurt.
I didn't write one nor a programmatic contribution and got in with median LSAT/above median GPA. They seem kind of random though, despite probably having a method to their madness.

Someone above both medians who early decision'd got straight out waitlisted earlier and that really confuses me. Oh well.
