Just heard back today and can confirm that UCLA did NOT jump to the top on LawHub
It’s the next day and now it is at the top of lawhub. Not sure what that means for those still waiting to hear back

wdym by at the top of lawhub? aren't they already sorted alphabetically?
No. They’re usually sorted by most recent activity, so if an app goes under review, complete, etc. it moves to the top. UCLA doesn’t have status updater but still moves, so you can predict when a decision is coming based on when it moves to the top
Mine moved up 2 days ago, still no decision
prayers up

I can’t send a picture, but if you sort the LSD chart by decision date and then click the interview column, it’ll show you there are WL candidates with interviews recently

Is UCLA friendly to lower GPA, high LSAT splitters?
WhiteMountains
23:48
To an extent. It depends how low your GPA is and how high your LSAT is
WhiteMountains
23:49
Generally, you need above a 2.5 gpa and 170 LSAT. The lower one score is, the higher the other must be
WhiteMountains
23:50
For instance, a 2.2 gpa and a 165 LSAT is highly unlikely to get you in
