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.

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?

S admitted proposed CS - in state. Good luck to all on the waitlist and awaiting more UCs.

That’s so awesome! That’s my daughter’s proposed major. We don’t know yet. She said there is something in her portal but she doesn’t want to check until her class is over. I can hardly breathe…
