Freshman admission notification

alwaysawriteralwaysawriter Registered User Posts: 289 Junior Member
When exactly does UCI start notifying freshmen of their admission decisions? The admissions website is a little vague since it merely says that UCI will be done with notifications on March 31. Students in previous years on sites like CC have mentioned getting decisions as early as mid-February.

So can anyone pin down an actual date or period of the month when they start releasing decisions? Should I be expecting something any day now, or will the decisions not come out for a while? (I've gotten my UCR decision and instead of satisfying me temporarily while I wait, it's actually making me more anxious to get my other decisions already.)

    Didn't decisions start around Feb 1st or 2nd last year?

    UCI does batches of admission. I remember in my year I got UCR and then UCI soon after. I don't remember when UCR came out but UCI came out in February (I think I got in on the 19th my year)...so it should be happening anytime soon. I don't know if they sent any rejections that early. If you don't get in this batch, there's nothing to worry about since most everyone who gets in, gets in during the March admittance season...it should be a random process.

    In 2010, my daughter received her acceptance on the first Tuesday of the month (February 2, 2010).

    I have heard the notification period is between March 1 and March 31. I am hoping that maybe they will send some out before then because the suspense is killing me. I heard that they send them out in bunches.... bunches on what basis? Like alphabetically by last name? :o

    @Amber307: I've heard that people who get into the honors program and/or a Regents scholarship get notified earlier, but obviously I don't know if this is actually true. Looking through 2012 CC threads, I noticed that people said they were admitted starting around 2/20 or 2/22ish. All the info is mixed and heresay...ugh...

    That is interesting... Well, I hope they do send out notifications before March. I am so anxious. Lol

    Have the early admission decisions for honors and regents gone out yet? From reading past threads I believe they come out some time in early February.

    I heard it's the first Tuesday of February!

    My son heard first week of Feb in his year 2010. Acceptance were sent out in batches starting in Feb. Not sure how they will do it this year though.

    Good luck to all who are waiting.

    Well today is the first Tuesday of February and I do not see anything on my account. Does anyone else see anything on their account? Perhaps I just didn't get the honors or regents scholarship :( Or maybe they were not even sent out today??
  • holaamigosholaamigos Registered User Posts: 97 Junior Member

  • MarmyQMarmyQ Registered User Posts: 20 New Member

    My S just received an email to attend the Honors Program Experience. Hopefully this means he will be admitted.

    My older sibling was admitted to UCI around Feb 15. I just received an email for Honors Program Experience. The bottom of the email does state that this does not mean admission to UCI.
