Thanks for replying. I can't understand how they're prioritising applications. It doesn't look like anyone has been rejected or waitlisted though yet which concerns me. It seems unfair to not provide any decision at all?

No problem. Apparently UCLA hast taken more time, compared to other years.

I see you have already been admitted to UC Berkeley. ¿Are you considering enrolling in UCLA, if admitted, rather than Berkeley? If so, ¿why?

I've been admitted to Berkeley's professional track which is a part time course. I would prefer a place on a full time course, and I'm still waiting to hear back from Berkeley's traditional track. I'm not sure which school I would choose if I got into both.

I know this isn't going to make you feel any better, but last year, they somehow lost my application. I had proof it was submitted.

So if getting into UCLA is really important to you, call their admissions office. Maybe they can give you more insight.

I'm starting to question whether I'd want to go to such a disorganised school, especially if turns out they've lost the application! That is really unprofessional.

I agree with you. They do not reply e-mails we sent, they do not send the admission letters to the admitted students, they do not inform us on our status, et cetera. If they do not contemplate their school, why do we do while we'll pay about $55,000?

Unfortunately, I agree with you all. Even though, I am strongly considering going there, it seems like they do not take their students/applicants very seriously. I hope we are all wrong, but...

I'm also waiting and my application was completed on Jan. 13.

Was wondering what exactly does "rolling basis" mean now.
Some people applied in Feb. and received decisions.
Plus, they extended the deadline now.

Did anyone send them an email regarding this?

There are 2 approaches I've seen. Go through the list and pick the best and respond to them first. Then go through the next tier and so on. That it seems that is what Berkeley does and waitlists the lower tier candidates.

Another approach is start looking at the ones that came in first and resolve them in chronological order (but still taking the best). This is sort of the early review process.

In general the earlier you can get your application in, your chances are better than waiting until the end.

As for emails, I didn't have much luck getting a response last year and finally when I did it was they had no idea about my application. They get a lot applications so I am sure stuff happens. I am glad though this was a safety school for me rather than then ones I really wanted to get into.

I can say that after about 60% of the way through the school year, I made the right choice despite my few reservations about SLS. It has been a very good place to network and in general people are approachable (not including the JDs for the most part).

I think that their process is not slow. Just may be they think that you are not the right choice (do not mean that you are not good enough). It depends solely on each applicant. For example, my application was completed on 2/6/16 and I got a decision on 2/9/16.

Just because they processed your application quickly doesn't mean that they have a good process, you're just one person. And yeah fair enough maybe they don't think that we're right for the school, but I would much rather receive a rejection instead of having to wait without hearing. If they have gone through their applicants and decided to process us last because we're not right for the school, why wouldn't they just waitlist us? If they had done that then I could start focusing on other schools and making other plans. They should process chronologically and make rolling decisions as they claim to.

Though it may seem incorrect and unjust, many universities do that

Normally they select who they'll admit, then the people on the wait list, and the ones that clearly didn't make the cut.

So when you haven't heard anything, you could be anywhere in those 3 areas until they decide and you receive some notification. So just because you haven't heard from them isn't necessarily good or bad.

OTOH if you are a top tier candidate, you'll likely here more quickly as they want you before you possibly commit to some other school.

There is a Chinese website talking about LLM as well.

Some people said they received Waitlist today, which is Friday in the states.
Since they will accept around 160 students this year, there is still a chance to get admitted if you haven't heard anything yet.

Did they give a quartile ranking of your position on the waitlist? A lot of people will turn down UCLA so if you are in the top tier of the weight list, you have a good chance.

They did not. They have just stated that they would keep me informed of changes in my acceptance list that would enable me to take the place of another student. I dont know What they mean.
