It’s about that time of year again as the UC application cycle is about to begin. I’m 10s4life, the current UCLA Forum Moderator. I’m an alumnus of UCLA and used to work for admissions as an Engineering Ambassador. @Gumbymom and @lkg4answers are the overall UC Moderator’s and are knowledgeable experts on the increasingly complicated UC admissions process. @CADREAMIN is the USC moderator across town and can offer inputs on USC and the other UC campuses as well.
Please feel free to discuss about anything UCLA related here. There are many knowledgeable posters that are here to help. Also helpful are the previous Class discussions, waitlist discussions, and admit stats threads that are all pinned to the top of the UCLA forum. You can reach the UCLA forum by clicking the University of California, Los Angeles link at the very top of this thread. Best of luck and go Bruins!
UCLA doesn’t have a pre-admissions portal like other UCs. They just allow you to check the status of our application. They are sending out emails acknowledging receipt of your application and a link to My Application this week.
Basically, it just confirms your application was received and what major you applied for-- also your general contact info. Standard text says,
" We are happy to have received your application for Fall Quarter 2022 admission to UCLA! Over the next few months we will be busy reviewing freshman applications. If, during the course of our review, we find that we need any additional information, we will contact you by e-mail. We plan to release admission decisions in late March. In the meantime, please visit our site for applicants where you will find more information on the application process. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions."
Yes. That is . My daughter applied biochemistry in ucla and ucb. She got a letter for asking 2 recommendations from ucb in December 3 , summited application 11/30 . But she applied ED 1 in claremont school. She got already financial award so I assume she gets in.
Hi everyone I apologize for the absence as life got busy but I’m back now.
To comment on the portal Ucla’s is just for status. No need to check often. Also just a heads up the ucsd threads will inevitably go into some inspect element voodoo conspiracies about finding your admission decision early. That’s simply not the case. Just trying to save time and effort thinking about that.
