does anyone know what happens if they can't call you?! cuz I'm on vacation right now and I won't be able to pick up my phone at home!!!!!!!!

do they email you or something?


I was on vacation as well when I got the call, so the office left me a voicemail that I didn't get for about a week . . . they didn't send an email/snail mail until about a month after the phone call (although I applied/was admitted very early in the cycle). I got the voicemail when I got home and returned the call to find out about acceptance . . . so I bet no email for a while, but don't sweat it, the offer will be waiting for you when you call.

I emailed Dean Schwartz since I was getting no answer at the admissions office and he emailed me back last night to let me know I got in. He also said my admissions packet would be sent to me this week. Good luck!

I'd hold off...I think he just popped into his office over the holiday and randomly decided to call some people. I only emailed him after I got a phone message and couldn't get a hold of anyone in the office (since it was closed).

i'm starting to wonder why i haven't heard from UCLA. i submitted in late sept. i've gotten into duke and NYU since then so i feel i should be able to get in - does UCLA ever YP? i'm really happy to have gotten in where i've gotten in, so i'm not feeling too impatient, just curious at this point.

I am in the same situation. Applied the beginning of October, have gotten into NYU, Mich, Virginia, etc., and have yet to hear a peep from UCLA. Really am interested in UCLA but has been kind of annoying to hear nothing after applying early. Tempted to call in the next week or so if I don't hear anything...

In at NYU, Mich, AND UVA and you are still considering UCLA? Are you from Cali? I'd happily take any of those! :)

Well this makes me worry.. I'm really surprised I haven't heard anything from them yet. I thought I'd definitely have heard by now. I'm either a WL or a R though, so not looking forward to it.

My exact numbers twin! I just got a fee waiver from UCLA..not going to apply, but was just checking this thread in passing. Good luck with your cycle, I've applied to a few of the same schools as you.

Sorry :( However, with your LSAT score I'm sure other schools are drooling (or have already drooled) to take you in.
