DUN DUN DUN DUN!!
UCSD transfer decisions are released starting mid-March through the end of April. That means..... they should start rolling out by the end of this week or next week DUN DUN DUN DUN!! I've been dropping by CC to see if any new threads were posted related to UCSD decisions, but there were none and I got impatient to wait. Format is pretty much a replica of last year's thread with the exception of all the BB coding (the last time I even ventured near coding was in the days of MySpace =__=;; enough BB coding with just moving over the FAQ from the previous thread to here!) - personally I think jdom24
organized the 'questionnaire' and starting post quite nicely :)
I touched it up a bit though since it's a bit long and added some things I thought people might be curious about, but you can always check out last year's thread questionnaire if you want to share more! As for the information he added regarding the transfer though, I just carried it over since it's all useful!
Anyways, in previous years, decisions were released in batches. Here's to hoping to be in an early batch! Good luck everyone!

I didn't get accepted in the first batch, am I rejected?
No, you have until April 30th to be accepted, and yes people do get accepted on April 30th.
Are TAG applications evaluated first?
Historically, the first the few batches have been mostly TAG applicants. Although, UCSD does say TAG's can go all the way until April (via Twitter - go follow @UCSDAdmission
Can you Chance me?
No, go here. 2012 Transfer Chance Me! Thread
What time does UCSD release applications?
Looking through last years thread it seems to be during the day, noon and on. Some people were admitted at 2pm and some kept refreshing and got in at 7pm. So, there doesn't seem to be a set time that they release the whole batch.
Is Warren, Muir, X, Y, Z, .... a good college? Or, I didn't get into my first choice college at UCSD, what can I do?
They are all great colleges, but depending upon your situation/major one might be more beneficial than the other when it comes to time 'til graduation. Although, it's usually not that big of a deal at the transfer level.
First, I really hope you read up on the colleges and their GE's here before you ranked them, as most people get into their first choice:
The Undergraduate College System
If you didn't get into you first choice, you are able to ask at orientation to switch. I've heard if there is a person in the college you want to switch into that wants to switch into yours they will generally accommodate the switch. Otherwise:
"In practice, the overwhelming majority of students are happy with their college assignment, even if it was not their first choice originally, and few students apply to switch. Petitions to transfer between colleges are difficult to justify and approved only in exceptional cases. To qualify, you must complete your originally assigned college’s writing program, demonstrate that switching to a different college will substantially shorten your time to degree, and have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 with a specified number of completed units."
When is orientation?
Your college will contact you and let you know.
Are there any events for admitted transfer students?
UC San Diego: Admissions Events
(also, my own suggestion is try searching up Wilderness Orientation with UCSD Recreation. They have trips every summer for incoming freshmen & transfers - but it's a bit pricey. I'M STILL PLANNING TO DO IT THOUGH! - theLURK)
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!
