have any ED -> RD applicants heard anything
I am ED -> RD, and nothing yet
uci please
I'm ED -> RD and my portal message of deferral disappeared and went back into review. did anyone else's also do that
I'm RD so idk
yes my message just went away. I was so worried they would wait until the end to look at everyone who was deferred.
wave today?
I see one single A with the decision date being today 2/27, but not sure if that's indicative of a wave or if it's someone who just input their old decision today
good point, there was also a wave last year on this Tuesday.
UCI A wave starting!!
anyone apply for the public service scholarship yet? when do we get notified about that?
dang, the fact that i've missed every A wave and there haven't been any R/WL waves is kinda scary
I can confirm I was accepted today
I dont have my stats on my account but I will post them here because I know it may help give people hope.
LSAT: 158
GPA 3.85

Can anybody confirm if they send an email or if it is just a status update?
it is both
@ScaredUnkemptOwl: did you apply ED or RD? And what month did you apply?
Does anyone have a guess at when the next wave is gonna be - in reference to last year's waves? Also, is is it typical for UCI to release all of their A's and then do a dump of WL/Rs?
