Hi guys, Well, it does happen and I'm proof of it. Going to interview at UCLA, not quite in their score range, but took the path less traveled lets just say, but neither did I win an olympic gold medal/pen a novel (did you see that olympic gold medalist in their recruitment video...). Guess they saw I was a real human being, made mistakes and had some victories...So, I'm both stoked and stunned, don't want to feel like I have to over-prove myself in the interview, but I can't help but feel like I have to be extra superhuman in the interview now, and I'm really again, just human... any suggestions on what they see in these cases that really pique their interest and do they really take people like me? Read one of the Adcom posts, that some schools interview people without the numbers who they really don't plan on admitting anyway. Please reassure me that this is not the case for UCLA (if you can do so honestly).
