Join the discussion and tell us your opinion.
If we got waitlisted for UCLA, how would you recommend we go about writing the supplemental thing for the additional comments for the thing we are submitting?
You can reference my questionnaire here to help you consider information you may want to provide as part of your waitlist statement (the questionnaire covers everything I think students should have discussed in the PIQ and, if not, should discuss in the waitlist statement).
If, after working through the questionnaire, you still feel like having me review your UC Application would be helpful, then let me know and I’ll set you up for service ($360).
You can also take the information you generated from the questionnaire directly to Angie Bates if you just need assistance with writing the waitlist statement.
My son was waitlisted. He updated his fall/spring grades (all A’s) but hasn’t submitted a statement because it said it was optional. Do you think it would actually make a difference to write the waitlist statement, or is it just a matter of numbers?
Whether a waitlist statement makes a difference is debatable. I think it’s really up to the students to decide how they feel about writing one.
Hello – we did receive the admission decision last Friday. However, we wanted to know if the wait list decision has been made, or it will come later.
Notification of admission from the waitlist typically happens after May 1. Sometimes students may not hear until late July or August (there is usually a final rejection that goes out late in the summer).
For the waitlist statement, would you recommend that add activities that are grown on (more in-depth involvement and things that I have done) in my senior year that I want to share or should I only include by grades?
Also, would adding activities be better or have it be a more “Why UCLA” statement – some creative element? Do you recommend having it like a paragraph format or activities list?
You can add information that you think helps better demonstrate your capacity for success at UCLA.
You can discuss 1) why you want to attend UCLA; 2) why UCLA is the perfect place for you to work toward achieving your goals; and 3) why you are a good fit for UCLA.
You should format it so that it works well with your UC Application.
