I was also really excited to get the call on the 1st, and If you cannot tell by my avatar, I think I will be there next fall.

Congrats ash! That's awesome. How much is the Dean's worth? Fingers crossed that my letter comes with something along those lines...:xf:

Noemi said that we make the deposit online. I figured the instructions would have been in our acceptance packets, but I guess they must come in a separate mailing.

Well the letter did say that the deposit would be made online, but it also said they haven't been able to generate logins for us yet... I hope they get it to us soon!

I'm sort of familiar... and it seems like living anywhere south of Wilshire is a nice place to live. Nice apts for not too expensive (relatively) and is still pretty easy to get to campus using a bus or a shuttle or something.

You have a great chance for acceptance. From what I hear, an interview at ucla pretty much guarantees you a spot. I think about 80% of the students interviewed are offered admissions. The interview is chill and good luck.

Do any post-dec acceptances get the Dean's Scholarship? I would assume they don't, but I figure it is worth asking.

Can't say for sure May, but I would bet that any Regent's/Dean's awards that get declined are available to anyone who's been accepted up to that point. Of course, you're fighting against more admits later on in the cycle...

I got both and I'm still up in the air about everything so you never know which awards are going to get passed on down.

What I got was Dean's as a one-time $10k, and Regent's as a $5k/year renewable for all four years. I haven't gotten my ID number in the mail to make a deposit yet.

Hi Guys!

So does anyone know what the student morale is like at UCLA? I'm choosing between SF and LA and I've heard from a few sources that student morale is generally low at UCSF. Can anybody answer to this?

Grazie!

I have two uncles who taught at UofP and have had many colleagues from UCLA. They said that UCLA treats their students very well and that overall the students were/are really happy.

I got the same feeling when I interviewed at UCSF, however I only interacted with a few students. Either way I am choosing UCLA.

Good luck with your decision.

Can't go wrong with either.

Anyone get a different amount for the Dean's scholarship?

My understanding was that the Dean's is $10k. I dont think UCLA is rich enough to offer a $100k scholarship.

That was my understanding as well... until recently. As I understand it now, the Dean's schol amount is up to his discretion.

i got $100k

We're probably not at liberty to comment on the details of our scholarship until we get formal letters (unless you have already), but I think I'm in a similar situation as you are. Did you get a call from Dean Park recently?

100K.. I doubt it. But if I'm wrong please correct me.

Check out the interview packet and it lists the range of awards distributed to the first year students of 2009/2010

Well, i can't exactly speak for hopefullyadent, but i can assure you that an applicant can receive a Dean's of greater than 10k. While the vast majority of them are 10k, the scholarship is ultimately at the dean's discretion. For example, my schol is renewable instead of one-time (much like the regent's is). I'll update you guys on the exact numbers if anyone wants to know after i receive the formal letter. At this point, i only know this info from over the phone.

And yeah, I was very skeptical too when I heard it. I have never heard of any student receive greater than 10k+5k(renewable).

Got an invite for an interview mid-Feb. So stoked!!!!

I thought UCLA might be a long shot because I'm out of state so I didn't set myself too hard on it. But now considering their interest and after doing more research on the school I clearly believe that UCLA is my #1. I really like Columbia too but I think overall UCLA is more in line with my goals of eventually practicing somewhere on the West.

:eek: Yikes! $100K?! I can't believe what I got even goes by the same name :laugh:

What's the update, uclaDDS101? Did you get a formal award yet?

Yea, I got the formal letter a little while ago. I'll be getting full tuition every year from my Dean's schol plus whatever I get every year from (<$5000) the Regent's schol. So it's around $140K total I think..
