    They told us November folks that we would hopefully hear something 3-4 weeks after our interview. This whole process has given me serious trust issues :rofl:

    I don't know what to expect anymore. The fact that a Geffen Scholarship was just barely given out on Friday (earlier in the forum) to an individual who interviewed mid September totally messes with my head. I have no idea how they are looking at applications anymore hahaha any insight??

    When I interviewed in October, I vaguely recall that they said that they would make a decision on our file 3-4 weeks after interview. But I don’t remember them saying that they contact applicants in that specific time frame. Additionally, isn’t it true that we only hear from them if we get accepted? Aren’t we in silence otherwise?

    Also, they said for us december interviewees the earliest we could hear back would be mid-late Jan but that would be if we sailed through all of the committees, so not likely

    Just got a call from Dr. Hall. He told me that 2nd look is April 6th and 7th and also that I got the Geffen Scholarship, and I can't breathe.

    This was after I received an emailed acceptance with no scholarship and they told me that if you get an acceptance, the scholarship would be included, and he said they're sending me an updated acceptance letter. Holy ****.

    Sorry if this has already been asked but does anyone know if UCLA is open to letters of intent (post interview, if that matters)?

    Thanks in advance!!

    congrats!! that's so awesome. do you know how often they give geffens after the fact? currently in a similar situation -- accepted with no scholarship. i'm weighing dgsom with another top tier acceptance, but a merit scholarship from DGSOM would make me come there 100%

    I was in a similar boat! But unfortunately, I have no idea. I would assume most people with Geffens would post on SDN and ~20% get the Geffen so maybe go through and see how many have it so far and make your assumption based off that?

    How large did they say UCLA's class would be this year? I recall hearing that it would be smaller but not certain.

    It's silly how they string us along forever isn't it? Does the cycle really need to be anywhere near this long? The answer is no.

    This school wasn't my top choice (it might have been had I learned more about the Gefden scholarship), and managed to do very well this cycle but yeah it doesn't make sense to string people along if you're done interviewing. Let us know. I can I imagine how stressful this is for people wait to hear back for even their first interview let alone their first acceptance.
