    Quoted from the link above:
    Therefore, we need all faculty and staff to participate in the Early Calling Campaign, a critical yield program to attract outstanding admits to UC San Diego-specifically those from historically underrepresented groups who have applied to your department, program or college.

    More information I dug up from Ms. Sun's blog on UCSD focusing on minorities:

    I can confirm that it is only underrepresented students. I'm a current UCSD student and am able to log onto the site to make a call, and there are only options for specific underrepresented ethnicities. And it's also up to the staff/students (although students weren't even notified of it officially) to decide how many calls they make, so don't be disappointed if you don't get one.

    I just looked through some old CC threads, and in past years calls apparently were made to URMs, Regents, and engineers. And maybe some who didn't fall into any of these groups. I am guessing faculty (not students) would make the Regents calls?
  • Lilliana330Lilliana330 Posts: 892Registered User Member
    Yeah, they seem to be asking the faculty to sign up/volunteer.

    What date of decision are we looking at for regular decisions, not that calling list stuff. I've heard the 12th and the 15th but which one is it really?

    My mom said I got a call from UCSD today informing me of good news. I, sadly, was not home and they said they would call later this week.
