Just got back yesterday from a week in L.A. (looking at apartments and attending USC's ASD) to find a Irvine wait list letter in my mailbox. I'm sending the form back to take my name off the waitlist, but here's a blurb from the letter for those of you that are curious and waiting for info.
"As you know, we seek to matriculate an inaugural class of only 60 students. Between now and the start of classes in August of this year, we will be watching our admitted pool closely. If in that time frame a spot becomes available, we will offer that spot to an applicant on our waitlist. We will not be ranking applicants on the waitlist. This means that we are not able to predict for you how likely it is that you might be offered admission."
I was a 3.3/160 and sent my application in the last week of October.
Do you happen to know what date the letter arrived? Also, what state/city are you from? I'm curious to see the general distribution. It seems like most of the WL letters were sent out last Friday. Cali people received it on a Saturday I believe.
hmm...not good, I live in So. Cal and I still haven't gotten anything. I'm guessing I'm not even going to make the WL
