My son just accepted his UCI waitlist offer. There wasn’t an option to include a statement. Is there any way to include a statement of why he wants to attend UCI? I saw this option in your post about UC Davis, but I can’t find any info for Irvine.

UCI does not require nor accept waitlist statements.

The sky has not fallen in! My daughter is now on the UCI waitlist. Question: should we try to update her app with new info? She’s up for some awards as the end of the year rolls around, so the info might be pertinent or persuasive but the waitlist seems to be locked down pretty tight. It looks like they’d prefer that we sit on our hands and resist the urge to lobby or update in any way. The first I understand, but the second is much harder!

Great attitude, keep it up! UCI does not ask for an update and supposedly unsolicited materials will not be reviewed. I don’t think there is any, but you can try looking for some kind of update form in the portal (that would be fair game).

Hi Ms. Sun,
I got admitted into the waitlist for UCI, UCLA, and UCSD. when do waitlist decisions usually come out? Any tips for UCLA’s waitlist statement? Thank you for the time!

Usually after May 1. Just emailed you a guideline for UCLA.

Hi Ms Sun,

My daughter got admitted to UCI; however, she just found out that she has selected the wrong major…she has put Biology/education as a major and alternative major of biological science. It should of been the other way around. Since they’re both in the same school of biological science, do you know if she can change the major? Thank you!

She shouldn’t have any issues switching. She can ask about that during orientation.
