My son just got waitlisted at UCLA which has been his dream school. What is the likelihood of getting off the waitlist and is it dependent on the major? For the questionnaire should we submit it as soon as possible or take the time to refine the response before the final deadline (we are unsure if the waitlist is first-come-first-serve since we have heard some applicants get notified early)?

Admission from waitlist depends largely on the size of the initial admit pool and the yield from that pool, plus the size of the waitlist opt-in pool and how quickly everyone else gives up. Kind of a crapshoot going forward (I recommend lining up the backup options and proceed accordingly; waiting around to see if you win the lottery is generally not a great life strategy).

I’m relatively certain the waitlist instructions said that students can make changes to the optional submitted information until the waitlist deadline.

Thank you for your response! We will definitely look into other options, but if he does get admitted from the waitlist, is it binding or do we still have the option to go for another college?

Admission offer from waitlist is not binding. But the window to commit is generally very short (I think it’s 3 days for UCLA).

My kid got rejected from UCLA. Am I wrong that some UC’s allow for an appeal? Or are all decisions final?

There is an appeal process. Admit rate for UCLA appeal typically hovers around 0.5%.

Hi Ms. Sun,

I opted in for a waitlist spot. I used the 7000 character box to put in my fall and spring courses. If I write a paragraph explaining new information about extra curriculars and my commitment to UCLA into that same box, does that count as my LOCI? Or is that a completely different application? Thank you.

You can think of the box as space for your LOCI.

Hi Ms. Sun, I heard the UCLA waitlist didn’t move much last year, I assume those waitlisted have very slim chance this year. My student got waitlisted at multiple top schools, do you suggest we skip UCLA and focus on UCSB or UCSD? Thanks.

Students should always focus on the colleges where they received acceptance offers. Personally, I’d prefer to go where I’m wanted.

Hi Ms. Sun, would I get rescinded from UCLA for not taking an AP exam that I indicated I would take on my UC application? I was planning to self-study for an AP language exam way back in the beginning of this year (I speak the language at home); however, the workload was much greater than I anticipated so I didn’t end up signing up. Thank you!

You should be ok. Review the UCLA Admission Contract that came with your acceptance offer to make sure.

I received a letter grade of D+ in Ap Calculus and three C grades in my classes. I ended up with a 3.1 gpa for first semester of senior year. I ended up getting accepted to UCLA. What do you think are my chances of being rescinded? I commented in the box about my grievance of death and obligation of having to provide in my household.

Hi Ms. Sun, I was waitlisted at UCLA for freshman decisions, I’ve seen some decisions come out, but not many for international students. The problem is I’m visually impaired and also an international, so not only do I need accommodations, but I also need a visa, which take quite some time. I’ve accepted an offer at another university and I start on august 1st, is there anything I could possibly do to get my admissions decision quicker? I was thinking of emailing admissions, but I’m afraid it will effect my chances of getting off. I’m really stressed and scared. Thank you for any help you can offer.

I guess the question is if you rather a firm no now or a slight chance for a yes later. I don’t think it’s unreasonable for you to request for a decision sooner given your need for accommodation due to your visual impairment. In my opinion, it’s better to get a firm no now, just so you can move on, rather than having the waitlist drag on, which will likely lead to a no later anyway.
