    expect to hear back pretty late maybe as a guess late may to june. im pretty sure the waitlists get first priority and if spots do open up then they will look through the appeals for people who may have actual compelling evidence. anyways best of luck and try not to get too attached to ucsb as you never know and try to get excited for your current options! (you may hear back earlier if you get off the waitlist granted you WL and appeal rather than got rejected and appealed.)

    My D also appealed in March, it’s worth a shot, UCSB is her dream school. I don’t think appeals reviewed after waitlist, I heard some regulation requires for it to be it’s own process.

    Where did you hear that from? Was it appeals from waitlists or appeal from rejects

    don’t listen to @samkr14. there definitely were not any appeal decisions made yet except ucla rejecting their appeals and there have only been waitlist waves. again you should expect to hear back late and chances are even lower if you rejected and appealed as appeal is your only shot. get excited for your other options as the waitlist is definitely not a guarantee for acceptance and is really almost the opposite.

    @KristopherG24 say whatever you want to say....I am just saying that a couple of my friends received their appeal decisions back....you shouldn't be rude and discouraging to others.

    Yes, positive vibes. My D is not giving up hope for UCSB, otherwise she submitted SIR to UC Davis.

    Why does it take so long to hear back from an appeal? If they're going to reject it, why can't they do so early on?

    @cutedogwoo Again, I emailed UCSB admissions and they said "All appeals are currently under review. Our goal is to complete the reviews and notify students prior to June 1, 2020. We thank you for your patience." So I am pretty sure.
