Don’t freak out if you were offered waitlist option by Irvine. This is NOT indicative of how competitive you are for admission at other UC campuses. Yes, it stings to not be loved by Irvine (I understand, I’d like to be loved by everyone too!). But I want to remind you that, every year, plenty of students are admitted to other UC campuses after this initial shock. So try to calm down (here’s a cat video to help you with that).
You may opt in onto the waitlist now or hold off until you have received all of your UC decisions. The opt-in is not binding and you may choose to attend another UC later. Hang in there!
