    Hello people, sorry to bring bad news but I just checked last year's waitlist thread, and literally every person on that thread got rejected around June 15. I am going to opt-in, but treat this as a rejection. Good luck to all of you!

    @GaussX I saw some statistics posted for waitlist and one year none of the waitlist got in and then the next year a small percentage did get it. Depends on the year I think.

    @bridebites Yes, it probably depends on the year. Also, do you have the link for those statistics? (if it is available online)

    Anyone want to chime in on whether or not I should still care about UCLA, since I got into UCI with regents? I'm thinking regents would make UCI the better choice but idk.

    Waitlisted.

    Major: Business Econ
    GPA: 3.85
    Accepted: UCI, UCR
    Rejected: UCB(Haas)

    I wasn't enrolled for Spring 2019 so I just put my Fall 2018 grades there. I don't know I was just following the example they provided. For additional info, I typed up a letter. That was basically just to thank them for looking through my application and what I did for the term of Spring 2019 (I worked full time as an office rep at State Farm)

    What is the best course of action to take? It's not logistically feasible for me to accept Davis, UCI or UCSB. I HAVE to go to UCLA. How can I get off the waitlist?
