Supposedly, Irvine had a 68% yield last year. With a 60 student class,

60 students / .68 = 88 students admitted

If we assume the yield is similar this year, then

80 students / .68 = 118 students admitted

Of course, indications point to this year being less attractive than last, due to the reduced scholarship offering. Of course, they've had a chance to make a splash and get their name out. Time will tell, I guess. :?

If they think the yield will drop to 50%, then

80 students / .50 = 160 students

Still depressing stats, even taking into account the 50% yield, especially since there are already a dozen or so acceptances on LSN (which supposedly represents around 8-10% of all applicants, I believe?)

Think at the margin! They only need to admit one person - you! You don't need them to admit everyone :twisted:

You are thinking of their acceptance or selectivity rate.

Selectivity = # of Applicants Accepted / # of Applicants Applied

Yield = # of Matriculants / # of Applicants Accepted

Schools what a low number for selectivity and a high number for yield.

Got accepted with a nice phone call from UCI today! Pretty excited since I was expecting a rejection. I'm a reverse splitter (PM me for actual stats) from a CSU with some unique work/volunteer experience. Was told that more information (ie. scholarship stuff) will come via snail mail. Still sorta in shock actually.
Good luck to everyone else!

Frequent lurker here who felt the need to finally post something (plus, I've already been called out on this topic, so it's only appropriate...)

SOO excited to get the "welcome to UC Irvine" phone call, and the message from Dean Chemerinsky. Plus, if the rest of the class is half as awesome as you guys are, that totally sells it!

For those already in, who's going to ASD? (it seems so random on a Thursday - is there anything happening on Friday the 2nd too?)

And for any UC Irvine 1Ls out there, where do most of your class live? On campus, nearby, etc?

Here's hoping for more phone calls tomorrow for those still waiting!

There are a few commuters and a few people living in private apartments nearby, but most of us live on campus. Campus housing is pretty much directly across the street from the law school, which is really convenient. Plus, campus housing is definitely the best bang for your buck.

Congrats on the new acceptances and I hope to get a chance to meet some of you at ASD!

Thanks pany! Looking forward to meeting you too (and particularly excited about enjoying the warm california weather on a crappy east coast weather day like today!!)

When she called me, Dean Ortiz gave me the April 1 date, and the paper letter mentioned it as well (unless my memory is bad). I haven't gotten anything since then.

Anyone check out UCI's twitter? There are a lot of interesting articles/current events on there. Makes me want Irvine even more :(

This is a little off topic, but I have been thinking about studying a foreign language while in law school. Anyone have any information on this generally or specifically about UCI? Is it complicated to register and take foreign language courses on the quarter system while taking semester law courses? I figure if I go to school in so cal and plan to stay there after we're done then brushing up on my rusty spanish could be useful.
Any thoughts?

In today via phone call from Dean Ortiz.
I'm probably attending.
So so so so so excited.
