does irvine waitlist 167s at a certain gpa?
167 with 3.3 or below looks like the waitlist cutoff
Looks like 166 needs above a 3.6 for A
A few are below those stats but not many… slow cycle for sure
@SocalNocal: does this mean a lot more As will be coming?
Has to, not enough admits seem to have been given. Maybe later this week or even tomorrow? i think they are waiting to see how the other programs shake out first?
