@kristinpete no idea, but I would assume they manually choose. Not all on the waitlist are equal. Plus, it’s based on availability within major. But I’m simply guessing.
Any estimates as to when the first batch of UCSD waitlist decisions will come out? I’m going off of last years’ waitlist thread, for now.
@mtar25 It was May 10 last year.
For a general biology major, what are the chances of getting off the waitlist?
Also, the waitlist processes simply is based on seatings, not grades/achievements/etc?
Hi guys UCSD was my second choice school unfortunately I got waitlisted I opted in so I’m waiting I’m a Literature major with a 3.4 gpa cc transfer
a bit late here but:
transferring from 4 year OOS (yikes)
Cumulative GPA: 3.65
Major GPA: 4.0
Essays: decent I would say
I’m so nervous and this waiting process is killing me I can’t even sleep at night
Friday, May 10th, is looking pretty SAUCY as far as waitlist admissions go. I bet some of us find out by 5pm that day
@tacoturnup where’d you get this date from?
Yes, I think Friday will be a juicy day.
@UniCoIn May 10th is when waitlist transfers started hearing back last year! Go check out their forums
Did everyone here decide to attend a different school? This thread is pretty dead.
No but I’m hoping they send out something tomorrow
@kristinpete I hope everyone did LOL! UCSD is my number one…I’d go here even if Stanford offered me a $250k scholarship. <3 UCSD
Major: Computer Science
Cumulative GPA: 3.9
Seriously hoping you guys are right about a lot of students being admitted off the waitlist. I modeled my education path according to UCSD’s CS major requirements and as a result it’s the only school I’ve met all the requirements for… If I don’t get in I’ll have to wait another year to transfer anywhere…
@CSDegreePlease A lot were taken off last year… we don’t know what will happen this year…
Right. Here’s to hoping that trend continues.
I submitted my intent to enroll at SDSU and paid the $400 and yesterday I had to sign up for “new student orientation” which cost me another $130 and IF I get off the waitlist and when I get off the waitlist (fingers crossed) I will be withdrawing from SDSU and going to UCSD. Which I hope would give an opportunity to someone who wants to go to SDSU. Is anyone on this thread continuing into law? If so, when do you plan on taking your LSAT?
Doesn’t look like it will be today…
Nothing yet. I hope we get the first wave before May is over, at least.
I called the undergraduate admissions office earlier today. The person I spoke with told me that their wait-list is unranked and some years they were able to give everyone on the wait-list acceptance and other years in which they accepted very few students.
