I think this was discussed previously, but with an acceptance to USC (no $$$ though) it worth holding out for UCLA's waitlist? Are waitlisted applications likely to get funding?

As far as I've seen, people don't generally get offered any type of scholarship if they've been admitted after waitlist. It would defeat the purpose of the scholarship really; considering they are used as a way to ensure their most preferred candidates choose them - someone who has been waitlisted isn't a preferred candidate. We've discussed and I think there's a general opinion that USC is better than waiting until June for UCLA. It is actually possible to later switch schools down the line though, you can pay the deposit for USC (so you'd lose the $500) and if you get into UCLA, you can confirm the place and attend another interview with the consulate if you're getting an F-1 visa. The second interview is a necessity, but it is possible to amend your visa to a different school.

Why don't you ask USC for financial aid? It's easier to get it if you have already been accepted, which is your case. Generally speaking, admitted applicants without any aid could be considered afterwards, because not every single admitted applicant with scholarship accepts their offers. I don't think that's the case with waitlisted applicants gotten off the waitlist.

Guys, thank you so much for giving me Vic Telesino's email!!

I have just received a personal apology that he had taken so long to get to my application - and I have received an admission and a Dean's Scholarship!

I'm really happy. Thanks for you help :)

I initially expressed interest in the public interest specialisation but I think I've changed my mind. If I go to UCLA I probably won't specialise.

Alright.


I've actually decided not to specialise anywhere. To be eligible for the CA bar you must use a mandatory 12 credits in the 'core' subjects. Considering that then only leaves you 12 credits (I hope to take more though) - I've realised choosing a specialisation then limits this even further. Usually restricting the choice completely.

As a result - I don't think I'll specialise anywhere because I want to be able to take advantage of the wide-ranging and interesting courses available at these schools :)

Oh! I did not know about 12 credits by core courses to take CA Bar.. That's new info to me. I applied to PILP, but your post made me think about it.....
