Looks like some UCs made changes to the processes and deadlines for the waitlist and appeal this year. You can find some of the information in the Fall 2023 Freshman Waitlist and Appeal Information Fact Sheet. Below is what I know so far.
Davis has removed the required waitlist statement. There is a “grade update form” that should be completed by those opting in onto the waitlist.
San Diego has moved the appeal deadline to March 31 (source).
Santa Cruz always had an earlier deadline for both waitlist opt-in and appeal:
- Freshman waitlist opt-in deadline is March 22, 2023 (source).
- Freshman appeal deadline is March 31, 2023 (source; freshman applicants who were offered waitlist option CANNOT appeal at this time).
For campuses that have a simple or one-click waitlist opt-in process, no additional information will be considered.
I have appeal DIY resources on YouTube: Understanding How the UC Appeal and Waitlist Process Works & How to Compose Your UC Appeal. I also have an appeal template to help you organize your appeal.
