Yay it looks like UCLA is handing out acceptances again this week...but in bigger amounts (or at least more LSN people). Some people accepted today submitted right before me...I hope I hear this week too!

i am :( :x


In-state tuition next year will be about $5,000 less than USC.
Out of state will be higher.

Will this have an effect on rankings? On anything?

Well, they aren't calling to inform you that you've been rejected...

That's for sure. :lol:

Can someone answer this Q? I want to send my application ASAP but I have been working on essays all week and not having to write yet another one will be a big relief. FWIW I went to UCLA for undergrad too, if that decreases the YP risk.

I don't know UCLA to be a very "YP-heavy" school... Are they?

It seems to me that they happily accept applicants with great numbers.

too early to give up. they'll have to look through all the ED apps. Seems like those above or at the UCLA's Median in LSAT (168) are the only ones accepted so far.

just wondering, does being a ucla undergrad help, hurt, or do nothing as far as chances of acceptance?

It seems that UCLA more than many schools (excepting maybe HYS, particularly S) cares about the quality of applicants' UG. Also, according to the UCLA website, UCLA UG is the most represented UG at UCLA Law.
