UCSD Waitlist Fall 2019 Transfer

a bit late here but:
transferring from 4 year OOS (yikes)
Major: Communications
Cumulative GPA: 3.65
Major GPA: 4.0
Essays: decent I would say
ECs: alright
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
CCC transfer

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.

@BenSimmons out here doing the Lord’s work

@BenSimmons did the admissions office give any information about when can the transfer waitlist people can hear back about admission?

@Skedaa No they did not give me any date at which they are planning to start sending them out. I was told that the admissions will be on a rolling basis, so whenever a spot becomes available they will fill it with a person on the wait-list. In my personal opinion only a handful will hear back in May and the majority will hear back beginning of June

I heard that last year SD was very strict about CS admission and only some top-notch students got in, but most of the admitted students went to LA or Berkeley, which is the reason why many got off the waitlist later.
Maybe we can predict the chance to get off the list according to this year’s admission. But I can’t really tell because there’s only a few information in that transfer thread. Anyways, hope we can all get in.

Hello!!! I was waitlisted last year and I got in! So if any of you guys have any questions lmk :slight_smile: I got off literally after the SIR date and there was a lot of people that got off mid May and late May? I hope you guys get in :slight_smile:
