Hi everyone! You all stay safe and take care of yourself and others amid this COVID-19 pandemic! Was hoping to meet some of you before the summer / the upcoming academic year, but looks like that won't be happening anytime soon. Please maintain social distancing and good hand-washing practices! Wishing you all well! Message me about anything med school-related (my classmates and I will also continue responding on facebook too).

P.S. Re: need-based aid, unfortunately, I don't have any information about aid. :/

Are the deans still present on campus, or is everyone working remotely now?
I can't speak for the deans, but all faculty are supposed to work remotely unless there's an urgent, essential matter that they need to attend to on-campus.

Basically, everyone is (or should be) working remotely as of now.

Tonight, the governor of California issued a “Stay at Home” executive order effective immediately for the entire state of California. This goes for all non-essential businesses. This happened around 7 or 8 pm PST, right after the LA mayor issued a “Safer at Home” order. These are executive orders rather than recommendations so everyone except those who are healthcare providers or work in transportation, gas stations, grocery stores, banks should be working from home.

Got the A this week!!! Literally so surprised given everything else going on right now. Interviewed in December and my portal didn't update until after I got the email from admissions. Anyone else who hasn't yet heard either way--there may still be hope!
Holy G U A C A M O L E!! Congratuheckinglations! :bow:

Were you ever waitlisted? Or straight up zero words from UCLA since you interviewed?

hi - hope everyone's doing well! Does anyone know when our financial aid packages get finalized (for UCLA and other schools)? I received a provisional award letter for UCLA but no updates since. It's going to be a big factor in my decision on where to matriculate so I was wondering if we'd receive a final package prior to 4/30. thanks!

Hi friends,

Louie here from the StART team. I just want to let you know that we are actively communicating with the admission office trying to sort this out as soon as possible! At this moment, we have not received any updates from the admission office to officially canceled the second look nor a plan to make the event online or postpone. Once we have any information, we will be making an official post in the Class of 2024 Facebook Page. An email from the Admission Office will also be sent to all accepted students.
Hi Louie, would you mind sending me a private message. I have a question if you don't mind
