UCI is guaranteeing their law students oncampus housing (a super good deal in OC), but you can't hold your housing spot unless you submit your SIR (the no-cost 'seat deposit').
Applications for housing spots only require $20, and the sooner you get your application in, the better chances you have of securing one of the better oncampus units. Us admits are onto this, and there's a lot of incentive to submit your SIR even if you are not sold on risky UCI law school. I have a feeling a lot of admits who have turned in their SIRs will drop out after Admit Day this Friday, and even more after the seat deposit deadlines of other schools takes place in mid/late April. Especially because at this point, many of the admits have excellent scores/work histories and will be courted by other schools.
I wouldn't give up hope yet, y'all. Just my two cents.
Hmm, this may be true for some, but from hearing from lots of other admits, I think there are at least 25-30 people who have committed and are 100% sold on UCI (including me). So, that leaves room for potentially 30 other spots to get off the waitlist, but there may be others who are sure they want to attend UCI but I haven't heard from yet. Who knows how it will turn out in the end, good luck to everyone waiting!
