According to an April 26, 2018 LA Times article, the UC Regents delayed a vote on tuition increase to negotiate for more state funding. This could be bad news for waitlisted students because the exact same thing happened in May 2015 and the UC system held the waitlisted students hostage during the budget negotiation (this was confirmed during the counselor conference later that year); students were left in limbo until late into the summer (August in some cases).
Students who are waitlisted or appealing should expect longer wait than usual (some UCs already said they may not notify waitlisted students until July). I recommend moving forward full speed with your alternate plan; no one wins when the UCs use applicants as cannon fodder in a budget war.
