rejection question

<p>now that we are seeing some rejections and not in waves. i assume that the theory of rejection in wave at the end of the month is not true anymore? how were rejections sent last year. i got into UCSB. i think they are about the same in terms of ranking, do you guys think i will get in. i have 1780 sat about 3.7 UC GPA and i have done many hours of community service</p>

<p>id say ur in. my buddy got in w/ 1620 sat and 3.93 gpa.
and yes, rejectoins definitly are coming randomly now, not in a single wave, according to the admissions representative i talked to yesterday. I think ucs, especitally this year, care about GPA more than sats.</p>

<p>the UC GPA is the GPA from sophomore and junior and weighted right? so i am guessing my higher SAT scores will compensate for my lower GPA comparing to your friend rightr?</p>

<p>yup. correct. lol dude ur better off than me. my uc gpa is 3.54, w/ 2030 sat. i hope ur correct when u say SAT compensates for gpa haha.</p>

<p>You're .2 points lower than I am in GPA, and about the same SAT's. </p>

<p>I don't know what your other stats are, and those could change the outcome by a large margin, but I'd say that you're in on a pretty safe bet from what you've told me.</p>

<p>then why the hell don't they accept me already lol. i am getting pretty impatient now. the last day is the 31st right?</p>

<p>thanks for the comforting words lol. and good job on the acceptance!</p>

<p>To tell you the truth, some people end up waiting longer. I hear that they're backlogged this year, so that could be a very real possibility for a good amount of people. Can't say this with certianty though, just speculation. </p>

<p>deepfriedeggroll, UCI's comprehensive reveiw is unpublished, but if it's similar enough to UCSD and UCDs' your SAT's and GPA factor to about the same point that we're at. </p>

<p>It's all good. You guys will survive.</p>

<p>hey merc can do u mind telling me if u got into ucd/ucsd/ucsb?</p>

<p>Didn't apply to SB, but I got rejected from UCD and UCSD. To tell you the truth, UCI was the only place I really wanted to go. Being rejected from those places was such a blow to my confidence about being accepted to UCI.
It was pretty dark for a few days, but after this acceptance came in, everything turned around. </p>

<p>But yeah, don't let a rejection from UCD or UCSD blow your confidence. It is indeed possible as many others including myself have proven to be rejected from those places and accepted into UCI.</p>

<p>thanks bro</p>

<p>Not a problem. ;)</p>
