Thank you- we were definitely surprised, not expecting it at all! We are in-state, but not local

Yep. Several people on Reddit got off the waitlist as well. Hopefully more come soon!

I wonder if those who received waitlist decisions today from SLO were majority OOS or in state?

For those who signed up for housing and orientation today, did you guys receive a confirmation email from orientation because I received one from housing but not orientation. But my status said complete after I paid.

From memory, your orientation selection is not finalized until like 6/21 ish. So that may be why you didn’t get confirmation, since confirmation will come later.

Did you get an email, or see the change in your portal? Congratulations!

Thank you! He received a nice email welcoming him to the Mustang family with ‘Congratulations!’ in the subject line.

Are they giving you until May 1 to decide? Only asking because my D21 is on the waitlist and visited campus yesterday and now knows she would commit if offered a spot. We did the visit in case they didn’t allow much time to mull it over.

D accepted off waitlist for Food Science in state not local. There was a portal update followed by email a few hours later.

Anyone for CS off the waiting list? Thanks

They don’t factor in yield here and maybe give people the impression that these are the acceptance rates.

Agreed and I seriously thought about editing the % out, but in the end, I didn’t want to edit their news story.

I can delete the %'s if you think I should.
