What is SIR?

Am I reading these 2015 numbers correctly: Among all waitlisted candidates 3400 opted-in; from this 500 admitted later (14.7% admit rate from wl). am I reading this right?

Last year there were 7,153 opt ins and 965 admitted off waitlist. I’m just happy not to be flat out rejected

I got waitlisted too OOS for psychology. I don’t think there is any hope either since my stats are low with a 1270 SAT and 27 ACT

@miichael: May I ask where you got the 2019 Waitlist info? I have not been able to find anything since the 2015 data?

SIRs are people who actually decide to accept the offer and attend the school. SIR stands for Statement of Intent to Register.

Since UCLA is the first choice college, can an applicant submit a Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) to another UC campus before May 1 AND request to be put on the waitlist for UCLA? We don’t mind losing the SIR deposit at the other UC campus if it means eventually getting into UCLA off the waitlist.

@DavidKinSac: You are expected to SIR to another school when you are on the waitlist since most decisions will not be released until after May 1.

You will indeed lose the enrollment deposit at the other school if you are admitted by UCLA and accept their offer.

@DavidKinSac If you’re waitlisted to ucla you’re supposed to submit an sir to a school you’re admitted to. Because waitlist decisions usually come out after deadlines.
