UCLA Class of 2027 Official Thread

Accepted for Pre-Statistics! 4.0 UW/4.8 uncapped weighted. In-state at competitive Bay Area high school (public). NMF. Activities included a couple research activities (major-related), president of 3 clubs, school organizing committee, national leadership with YMCA, and some social-justice related volunteering. Can’t objectively rate PIQs but well-reviewed by those who read it. No hooks.


Our Student waitlisted for Economics.

OOS, 4.0UWGPA, guessing 4.5 UC Formula capped GPA. Good essays and ECs. NMF. Does the waitlist in UCLA actually move?

WOW. I am very, very surprised. Waitlisted with very mediocre stats


Really doesn’t make sense, and to a degree its almost disrespectful in my opinion to reject this many in state students when they’re admitting nearly 20% out of state. The efforts we’ve gone to be competitive have been for nothing(so far) and many of us have missed out on the HS experience and the sort of enjoyment and comforts that were supposed to come with it, the rejections have left me with regret on how I spent my time more than anything else.


Yes, check the information here:
