Ikes. What's up with UCLA this year? They are being uber selective. You either need an LSAT well above their median or a freakishly high GPA to get admitted so far. I hope all of their accepeteds go to T14 schools and UCLA has to scramble to fill up their class by wh0r!ng themselves out to underqualified applicants. They just shouldn't be so gosh-darned selective!

I haven't heard a thing from UCLA. I was pretty confident they were going to accept me when I first applied but like Florida in 2000, I think I have to move it back into the too close to call category. Unfortunately, they're all too close to call at this point...except maybe Columbia which is like a Democrat running in Texas.*

glad: I wouldn't be too worried...especially since you had to go and get straight As and ruin our chances for twin cycles.

I was waitlisted also. Very sad.    I'm not going to stay on the list, I don't want to wait that long to make a decision and I am positive that even if I got in at the last moment there would be no money, only crappy places to live.........  my stats:  3.76, 167, science degree  Again, very sad.

That dream was already dead unless Michigan pulls an unlikely reversal and turns my deferral into an acceptance.

Does UCLA only call auto-admits? Does everyone else get letters?

For those of you who got the WL letter.  How much did you love that pink paper with the pencil graphic border?

I wonder who made that decision.
