I met someone today, whose friend was admitted, and he's decided to wait a year. That's one more spot.

veganchick, did you just get in?
thinking of you too... and as much as I want everyone to get what they want, it's nice to know I'm not alone in the process. Misery always loves company. The housing search isn't going that well.
veganchick, did you just get in?
no - in fact, I only got about 2 hours of sleep I have so much anxiety now. I'm on campus at pepperdine right now looking for housing. I think I just have to get used the fact that I'm not going to UCLA. I've put off moving for too long, thinking there was a chance. Gotta just take the plunge, and get my act together. I'm SO not ready for school to start in 2 1/2 weeks. I think Pepperdine has got to be one of the hardest schools for finding nearby affordable housing. Totally sucks.
This ocean view isn't even calming me. Ugh.
Nope, still not working...
No email here either. Drats! Starting to get really worried now (especially since I have to move in 2 weeks!). For now, I'll just keep hoping that more spots open up after the 28th. Hey Veganchick, any word on the "certain criteria" that they're looking for?
First - thank you to the well wishers who are going elsewhere
Second - this has been such a bad day! Jerky "guy" stuff (beyond jerky actually, but I'll keep it clean), then the endodontist had to postpone my root canal (which I desperately need), and now NO UCLA email. My eyes are all poofy now...
OK, I'll stop complaining... but regarding the "other" criterion, it was like pulling teeth just to get her to say those words... didn't get any other juicy info. Sorry. I just have a feeling that those who got the emails are up to bat next.
I didn't get an email
and was told by admissions just now that you have to have "certain criteria" to get one. I asked if an applicant would still have a chance of getting in, should they NOT receive that email - and she said "yes". For what it's worth... ugh.
honestly, I have a sinking feeling that if we didn't get one, we're out of the running...
I'm only 90 lbs. I say they take the three of us, and I'll just share a seat with someone. There has to be room in the back for us somewhere, don't cha think?
I was also just thinking that if by chance we get in... what in the heck happens with our financial aid that's already sitting at other schools? Can they really sort it out that quickly if it's already orientation week?
According to LSN, someone got in off the waitlist today.
Maybe Cornell will accept them, and they'll go there instead
The 28th is almost here... YIKES. Keep those cell phones charged!
This is how I feel: Basically batty at this point.
For what it's worth - I met a 3rd year from Chapman last night who said she really liked it there... she also said she really enjoyed her summer internships too. She said she chose Chapman over other higher ranked schools because she wanted to stay in Orange County.
I dropped off the waitlist for LLS too - but still read this thread, so you're not alone If it makes anyone feel any better - UCLA is "over-enrolled" according to their admissions office - and that's a bit worse than just "full" at LLS... so have hope!
