Hmm waitlist at Santa Cruz…but accepted at Irvine

Thank you so much!:sob: I’m an international applicant actually, but I can derive California residency from my dad. According to SDSU my CSU GPA is a 3.8/4.0, (which they calculated from my percentage and marks) which will be the same for weighted, unweighted and capped for me since I don’t have any kind of weightage in my courses ( they’re standardized). I’ve also had my GPA classified as 4.0 in other colleges so, 3.8-4.0 I suppose?

I had a solid 99.8% percent in psychology my last 2 years and my overall percentage was average 90+ for 4 years together, 95+ last two years. I did multiple extracurriculars ( which were quite limited where I come from but I took every opportunity), including soccer, olympiads, yearbook, 2 Northwestern writing courses in, multiple internships, and many other psychology, writing and graphic designing related extracurriculars. My essays were decent, probably 7.5/10, a couple may 8.5/10.

Same here. Got into UCI yesterday for CS but got waitlisted here. Super bummed right now.

admitted for marine bio! very relieving haha

My last name begins with Z.

This year system is completely unpredictable! Objectively, UC Irvine has a lower acceptance rate, so one would think UCSC is a guarantee if you get accepted there, but it can’t be said for sure. With the applicant increase , test optional policy, lower extracurriculars senior year, more in state applying etc, the competition is insanely INSANELY high. I wouldnt fret too much. Maybe they just thought you were too good for them and thought you UCB or UCLA bound :wink:


have there been any rejections yet?

Very true points. I’m expecting UCSC’s acceptance rate to drop to around 35% this year since over 200 people last year were able to defer their enrollment and because they heavily overenrolled.


Congrats to all who got accepted. And whoever’s waitlisted, just hold on and you might be a banana slug soon. International student here, got accepted for astophysics during the first wave :smile:


does anyone know or think there will be more releases today? or will i have to wait until friday

and congratulations to everyone who got accepted or even waitlisted :slight_smile:

Son was just accepted to Art: Game Design.


Does ucsc admit by major or by college?

I believe only the college of engineering accepts by major.

Is it possible to get off the waitlist before May 1st?
