Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
i havent heard nathan
like ik my stats are low but :(( damn, it's humbling
I also have heard nothing and its killing me lol
zit just me or is this cycle pretty slow so far?
^question about callback time, I got mine the morning after completed...crazy
also not crazy stats... theres a bit of randomness to this stuff it seems
Does anyone know why there is so much variance from LSD's admission percentages vs. 7sage? 7sage uses LSD so shouldn't they be relatively similar?
7sage uses data from the past 5 years or something is what i heard
idk how i survived this UCLA E wave
so many people with similar stats got WL in this wave
I see 3 people who got waitlisted...?
@NotAHoyaSocialClub: where did you see an E wave? also would it be an email then? lol imagine if they still called you to tell you naur
just got waitlisted yesterday. ugh. anyone know if they end up accepting a lot from the waitlist? i assume since they're not T14 they get a lot of people rejecting their admission, so they probs dip into the waitlist quite a bit, right?
@ateenytinyband: you can check the numbers for this on previous years. Just navigate to a different cycle and hover over the question marks next to the A and WL numbers on the top left
Soo UCLA looking like they're going to keep the 171 median
dont lose hope! 3.8 and 15low and just got the call today
@wittykitty: what are your softs like? are you URM?
if you're comfortable answering that ofc
Did the UCLA tracker always have a school tracking number under the LSAC number?
i think so
A URM got into UCLA with a 158. Priorities!
Compared to the other As/Rs tho I wonder if that's a troll profile.
Doubt URM could give that much of a boost
Or they have solid softs and you didn't look at their application
yeah I'm only asking out of curiosity since I am a reverse splitter and URM
and figured they had a great overall app and super strong soft
UCLA wave over?
UCLA is pretty sporadic
could go until 5pm pacific time
I wish I could know when my app is under review :/
