Waiting lists and e-mails


Hello! I have been placed on ucla's wait list and offered admission to usc. I am wondering if it would make any difference letting ucla know that I have been offered admission to usc. Do you think it would make my application stronger (due to the "competition") or weaker (make them say "ok, we recommend you get usc's offer and we wish you luck"). At the end of the day, I DID get offered admission and I have to decide soon anyway. Is it risky to tell them that I am, so-to-speak, in a pickle???

i suppose your first choice is UCLA? i think being accepted to USC definitely boosts your credentials somewhat. if your deadline for USC is near, you should just write UCLA and tell them that you really want to study there but you have to make a decision soon because your deadline in USC is coming up. i wasn't quite waitlisted in my preferred school, but the results were taking really long. so i wrote them and told them my deadline for one of the schools where i had an admission was drawing near. i eventually got in my first choice. you have nothing to lose anyway. good luck!

Thank you so much for the advice. I guess my fear is receiving something like "since we can't promise anything, please feel free to decide whatever you wish. We would hate you to reject an offer and risk your future". And then get rejected. But at this point, que sera sera!
