I cannot emphasize enough how you should stop speculating or freaking out if you were offered admission, not offered admission, or offered waitlist option at Davis. This decision is NOT indicative of how competitive you are or how you are evaluated for admission at other UC campuses. Every year, plenty of students are admitted to other UC campuses after this surprise/shock. So try to calm down (here’s a cat video to help you relax).
For those who were offered the waitlist option, Davis no longer requires a waitlist statement. If you want to be on the waitlist, simply opt-in. Alternatively, you may wait for the decisions of other UCs and colleges before you decide whether you want to take up the waitlist offer (you have until April 15 to opt in).
For those who were not offered admission, wait for the decisions of other UCs and colleges before you decide on your next steps. When you get an admission offer from a college you want to attend, this is going to feel incredibly silly.
One final piece of advice: I understand the wait can feel unbearable but you have to learn to cope. You will, at some point, need to wait at the DMV, wait for an audit result by the IRS, wait for a medical diagnosis, or wait for the downsizing result at your company; if waiting for college admission decisions crushes you, you are going to have a real tough time going through life.
