UCD rejected. Advise on ELC status and next steps

<p>Hi All,</p>

<p>Congratulation to all UCD admitted students.</p>

<p>Unfortunately, I received a rejection from UCD yesterday. I am however qualified as an ELC student (top 9%) at my HS. At the moment, I am not sure that UCLA will accept me. </p>

<p>I would like to know if I should forward my application to UC Merced for admission consideration for the fall 2013 or the UC office will forward my application automatically on my behalf. I did not formally apply to UC Merced previously.</p>

<p>Thank you very much for your advise.</p>


<p>Sorry to hear you were rejected! Don’t give up hope on UCLA though, my friend was rejected from every UC except Berkeley… </p>

<p>On the UC website, it says: “ELC students not admitted to any of their campus choices are offered a spot at a UC campus that has space, if minimum UC requirements are met.”
So I’m pretty sure they will automatically send your app to Merced, and you’re sure to get in a UC!</p>

<p>Wow. That is good to know. Thank you very much.</p>

<p>I was told that if you were to be rejected at all your UC choices, then you could notify them and be accepted at a school with space. That would generally be Merced.</p>
