wow, that is really crazy. You didn't get waitlisted before May even? That is kind of strange that they leave you hanging like that.


Nope, I got the evil WL in May then hung on till the end and finally got dinged Aug 23. Also, the admissions lady can be quite friendly but definitely has a dark side so tread lightly.

It is kind of strange that they don't even give you a WL decision by April 15th.

Their excuse last year was "new software" that lead to delays....but if you search LSN, every year there are delays. If your not a numbers superstar and Davis is your top choice be prepared that it might take a while.

I'm "awaiting evaluation"


Hmm.. I went complete on 11/7 but im still processing. Received on 10/16.

Maybe its because I did not include an LSAT Addendum which I emailed around 11/7. I hope i go under evaluation soon. :(

From what i can tell, there's actually 2 versions of being complete. I think you're not really complete until it says "under evaluation". Despite mine saying it was complete, they required my LSAT addendum.

Unless they get "new software" every year, their trend of acceptances has always came pretty late.

Was your previous status "awaiting evaluation"? Just checking to see if there's two phases. Good luck, wish you the best.

No, there is a difference between having a complete date, and going under evaluation. Should take you less then a week or two to move on to evaluation.

Just curious how this year's Davis applicants feel about the tuition situation. Would any of you guys pass up Davis for, say McGeorge if offered a 3/4 scholly?

I'd probably stick with Davis anyway but just curious for other opinions.

I'm so concerned over the price. Your confidence is intriguing.

I think I read somewhere McGeorge's median income is $70k MEDIAN, which is basically worthless info, when push comes to shove and everyone has to find jobs lower than what they are used to, where does that leave these grads? McD's?

No, but I might pass up Davis for elsewhere, being how extreme the tuition hikes are.

Like where though? Everybody says its almost impossible to get back to CA if you didn't go to school here. I think WUSTL, maybe U Washington or U Arizona are the lowest schools you could reasonably hope to get back to CA out of.

I strongly considered large scholarships at USD and Loyola, but I as bad as I am freaking out about my grades right now, I can't even imagine how bad I'd be freaking if I knew I needed to be top 30% to keep those schollys.

I'm not from CA. I don't need to go back there. I'd be nice though.

Are you currently attending Davis? How do you like it / Do you believe you made the right decision?

Yeah those too. But I don't know that they would give you significantly better career prospects in CA than Davis. And they might not be cheaper either.
