    Wow. Look like UCB has put so many good students on their waitlist. 😐 btw, UCLA probably release their decisions later today too. I changed my hope to UCLA over UCB. Not really optimistic for UCB, but I think I will give a shot for the essay. Good luck for all’ya who applied for UCLA!

    Waiting for UCSD to get back to me. If they accept me I will probably be SIR-ing there. I’m still holding out some hope for Berkeley tho. I’m just quite tired of waiting for results. I’ll be turning in my opt in form some time at the end of this week.

    Wow there are some many international students here (I am also one of them!). I wish you guys the best of luck!!!! I was lucky to get into UCB with a 3.81 for biochem but I had tons of ECs, leadership, and awards. Do not lose hope guys, I hope one of you guys gets to have my spot.

    Hi all! I've been a long time lurker on these forums and finally decided to make an account.

    I was also waitlisted at Cal

    Major: Social Welfare
    CCC transfer - Bay Area
    IGETC complete Spring 2019
    All prerequisites and recommended courses done

    Overall GPA: 3.03 (pretty low for Cal but a girl can still dream lol)
    Major GPA: 3.5

    I feel like my essays were pretty strong and I have decent ECs (full time work, after school teacher, work with people with disabilities, volunteer w/food bank, elections volunteers)

    Accepted: SFSU, SJSU
    Rejected: Cal Poly SLO
    Waitlisted: UCSB, UCB

    Best of luck to all of you!

    @masonliu me too. I don't know what to do. I probably just pay deposit for SJSU first and then wait. Not too much hope for those 2 schools.

    @jid621 same. I think I don't have and ECs, that's why they waitlisted me. How can you finish 60 transferable units for 1 year?

    @autc23 don't give up hope! I think you have a decent chance of making it. I was admitted listing this major last year with a 3.6. Its an impacted major but also one that not many choose. Life got in the way and I couldn't attend so I'll be trying again in November but with a different major.

    Good luck to everyone!
