Any reason why UCSC would have an earlier deadline for wait list opt in?

Probably to make sure the students who opt in are actually interested in the campus. The campus also seems to have some kind of coordinated strategy for both waitlist and appeal (this is my speculation based on how the deadlines and the processes are set up).

UCSC was my kid’s fist choice but got waitlisted for political science despite high stats for UCSC. Accepted at UCD and UCR. Accepted her spot in the waitlist immediately. Is there anything else that she can do at all?

She should review the admission offers she has received and make plans with those. As for the waitlist, the UCs expect her to sit on her hands and wait.

When do waitlist students start hearing from UCSD? Those decisions usually come in email or through their portal?

Usually after May 1. Students should receive an email but the window to SIR is usually very short so students need to frequently check their spam/junk folder. Checking the portal two to three times a week is probably the safest bet.

Has any UC, other than UCI, admitted off the wait list?

I heard from students who were admitted from waitlist at Davis and UCLA.

Accepted to UCSC in March, I accepted the offer. Was UCD’s wait list, accepted today, how do I cancel my acceptance to UCSC.

Congratulations. There should be a function/form in your Santa Cruz portal to withdraw the SIR.
