UCLA admissions


hey guys,

I applied to UCLA but even if I get accepted, I won't go there because I'm going to Chicago or NYU instead.

Good luck!

Got my acceptance e-mail yesterday (Fri) but am not sure if I will go because of the cost. I didn't get a DTF but I've been talking with Vic T about trying to get reconsidered. I'm from the US and have a couple other schools making offers with some substantial financial aid packages, so I'm really hoping UCLA can offer me something.

I think there's every chance you might get accepted, since there seem to be quite a few people turning down their offers from UCLA. What are the other law school choices you have and when are your deadlines for them?

Thanks for the positive response Trout_face. I hope UCLA Takes me. I am thinking for BU, SFU, UC Hastings, their dead line is 1st April. I did'nt get through in Berkeley, waiting anxiously (like every body) for Harvard.
God!! I never thought LLM admission will be so killing.

I've been put on the waiting list. I just received e-mail from the school yesterday. They said "Applicants have not been placed on the waiting list in specific order, as final admission decisions will be made in the same holistic manner as they are in the initial application review process. Your likelihood of gaining admission is difficult to predict at this time, as it will depend upon the number of admitted students who accept our offer of admission"
I am wondering Is that waiting policy differ from other schools?

Also heard that last couple years, approx 25-35% of those on waiting list were admitted. This is quite reliable as I saw Vic's reply on UCLA admission's topic, last year. Keep my finger's crossed :)

yeah. Probably a good thing at this point. I still haven't heard anything from UCLA. I can't decide if I should feel positive about that or not?

I was admitted yesterday as well...

Still waiting for other Uni's in the US though..

Can someone help me with this issue: UCLA vs. King's College?

I know King's is among the top 5 in England, which is not UCLA's case, but I still dont know which one is better...

On wait list either. It seems to me that a volume of us have been on wait list. Does it imply for UCLA that "wait list" mean "reject". Since I 've never seen the top rank uni in the US put a number of candidates on the wait list as much as UCLA before.

No. It means that many people who got admission offers from UCLA will reject it... Believe me - I know so.

Grrrrrr... Just got my admission to the wait list club. Been waiting since October, now I get to wait some more. . . . I sure hope there is at least a chance of gaining admission under these circumstances.

I heard that they offer admission to nearly 70 applicants, and only 20 to 25 accept the offer!

This makes sense. I think a lot of applicants take UCLA as a "safe" shot, but also apply to schools in the top 10, even top 5. If they get accepted there, they decline the UCLA offer (that is what I did).
