If you're up for retaking that's probably the advice you'll mostly get
I'd really rather not take another year

Yeah don't go somewhere you want to transfer away from. Grades may or may not work out, transfers may or may not materialize, and aid may or may not be sufficient.

does anyone have experience with applying as an indigenous international applicant
Ijustwannagetinman
22:40
Guys I just realized in my last LOCi to UCLA
Ijustwannagetinman
22:41
I listed a professor who posted on one of his blogs that he is leaving at the end of June in 2024
Ijustwannagetinman
22:41
but I didn't know that he posted that it was in ONE blog it wasn't on the UCLA website
Ijustwannagetinman
22:41
I didn't list him in my second LOCi he's just literally one of my favorite authors so I wrote about him is this devastating that I listed him??
22:49
i think ur okay i dont think they would expect u to know let alone know themselves
22:51
This is a risk of talking about specific professors (and my school's careers in law folks advised me against doing so in Why ___ essays for that reason) but I doubt they're going to gauge your entire interest in the school based on this
22:52
Ironically, you'll probably benefit if your reader is a bit cynical and assumes the "one of my favorite authors" bit is laying it on thick, but this person leaving is not actually a dealbreaker
22:52
(Which it does not sound like it is)
22:57
during my cycle (2020-21) I mentioned professors in many of my apps
22:58
I outperformed my numbers so I don't think its that bad of a tactic
22:58
I think you just need to sound credible
Ijustwannagetinman
23:15
I didn’t say he was one of my favorite authors I just cited UCLA’s first amendment center and said “led by professor volohk”
Ijustwannagetinman
23:15
But he’s leaving soon
Ijustwannagetinman
23:15
He happens to be one of my favorite authors, but I didn’t say that in the essay
Ijustwannagetinman
23:16
I just wanna go to UCLA so bad it makes my heart ache

Go to the school that will pay for you to go. To do otherwise is a life altering error in judgment.
