Just realized son got into Honors at UCI


Last year, my son received regents at uci with his acceptance. received invitation to apply for regents at ucla shortly after decisions released.


UCLA usually invites top applicants to apply for Regents. It is not awarded upon acceptance. Last year, those that applied were notified whether or not they received the award in early April.


Accepted!!! tears of joy after waitlists at SD and UCI.

Best wishes to everyone. Hope it will work out for every single student, it will!!!


As will the depression stress and anxiety, missed moments with my friends, and failure on the romantic end of things, at this point I’d rather have had a significantly worse application but better life in High School

Same. What happens to ELC (state and local) Computer Sci majors? They say if you apply UC and don’t get in, they will find a place for you at one of the campuses…but they’re all full. With waitlists.

Rejected. :smiling_face_with_tear: She won’t be at the same school as big brother which is sad on one level, but she is ok because she got into UCI, UCSD, and Scripps tonight! So lots of amazing options and she can own her own school. Sorry, Bruins :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Each UC campus reviews applicants independently and have their own institutional priorities so not unusual to be denied or waitlisted at other campuses.

I’ll probably be dumped onto Merced, which is better than nothing but really not ideal in nearly every way except cost
