UCSD Supplemental Review Questionnaire

Sounds like UCSD is starting to send out supplemental review questionnaires. Read on for general advice and how to get more help.


Get the guidance you need on how to best complete your supplemental review questionnaire by signing up for my Supplemental Questionnaire Service. I will review your UC Application, provide an analysis of the potential triggers, and counsel you on the best strategy for answering the questionnaire.


San Diego appears to be using the same questionnaire as last year, with questions about educational preparation programs, community involvement, and personal hardships (you may answer only the questions that apply to your situation). Make sure you take the time to carefully think through and respond to the questions. This is likely the final piece of information UCSD needs to make the admission decision.

UCSD Supplemental Review Questionnaire Guideline

If you received a questionnaire, you can forward the questions to me at help@askmssun.com and I will send you my interpretation of what the campus is looking for in your response (I do this to minimize the chance of the UCs getting their hands on my guidelines). Please check your junk/spam folder for my reply. Keep in mind that the free guideline will be somewhat general in nature, since how you answer the questions will largely depend on your personal situation.

You may also want to review the explanation from UCSD on how its “supplemental review” process works (link takes you to page 26 of a PDF file, where the explanation is located).
