No, it's not named the "Official UCI Alternate List" thread ( :laugh: ), but we'd appreciate any updates. I'll be calling Gayle on Monday, so I'll let you all know what I find out!

Please include interview date and any status page changes that may occur.
ALSO, please let us know if you're planning on keeping the spot ;)

Oh, you can't just go and say "that's what I heard" without telling us what it was you heard!

Yeah I'm curious. On a side note, I'm withdrawing after going to the UCSD second look (and the beach today!). I might just wait for my aid package in case there is like a mega-difference in aid or like a scholarship or something (fat chance).

I'm sure lots of you guys are going to get in, I would just enjoy yourselves.

I'll post what I heard AFTER I get unequivocal confirmation tomorrow... I don't want to post misleading, erroneus information by accident.

I hope this is good news for you UCI waitlisted. My friend just got into UCSF so she'll be withdrawing from UCI any day now. Maybe one of you will get good news from this?!

Nope I haven't, and I'm paranoid too I guess, and waiting for FA packages...

UCSD's was amazing though (got it over the phone) so I'm really thinking of withdrawing this week. I can't afford to go to second look anyway. Nothing about UCSD gave me a bad feeling except perhaps the intensity of the first year, but that's why I'm going to do the summer program.

I called Gayle today also... and it sounds like after May 15 is when they'll be doing more reviews. I'm thinking at this point PRIME-LC won't be happening for me most likely.... I guess there is still a small chance if someone turns them down right around May 15. I understand the only 1 acceptance paranoia... I'm right there with you on that.

Oh great... More good news... *Sigh* :(
Call back and ask how many people were placed on the alternate list and how many people were rejected post-inteview.... pretty please... :D

I mean, there were at least 38 people (~1/10 of the interviewees) who posted on SDN that they were interviewed, and no one mentioned post-interviews rejections.

I believe you are joking and I've made similar jokes on posts- however, I have irrational fears of the same thing happening. Its been since December since I got an acceptance and occasionally I have bad dreams about them taking it away. Has this ever happened before?

Yeah, I just feel like I've had all this control over things and now I have to choose one and the control goes to the admin. of that particular school and if for some reason they decide they hate me I'm screwed, is that unreasonable?

I have a similar dream except that mine goes something along the lines of them realizing they like me, but not until early August and I get this call on my cell while I'm sitting in on the first day of classes at the school that accepted me and I say "Hello?" and they say "Congratulations, we love you!" and I look around and think "WTF...". :scared:

LOL! See, that's why these dreams SUCK sooooo badly. I know it's a great school and some of the peeps that will be there are cool... It's like the girl who has two guys on her mind. The first is a nice guy who totaly loves her, and the other guy is the Jerk who completely ignores her.... But she can't stop thinking about the jerk. :(

thanks again! Every time I hear it, it's like sweet music to my ears. So, I take it you have a vested interest in going to UCI too? Can I have your address? I promise I won't stalk you :) :laugh: :smuggrin:

It's May. School starts soon. Therefore, I hope so.
(sorry, was waitlistsed back in Oct/Nov so 'soon' is now a relative term to me :( )
Soon could mean June/July/Aug.... June is comming pretty soon to me.

I'm in the process of scheduling flights out to Ohio to look for housing so......soon probably won't be til after I get back and then some. Oh well.

Lucky! Although Case hasn't sent us ANYTHING, people are speculating that it starts August 7th. :( We get to find our own housing.
The nice thing is that it's cheap! (relativly speaking) 3 bedroom house for <$1000!!!
I'm seriously thinking about getting one all to my lonesome. :D

Posting some alternate list movement... :)

I got a phone call tonight telling me that I had been accepted to UCI. It came during the middle of dinner, and I was so happy! :) But I think this means I only have the next few days to decide between UCI and UC Davis, and as of yet, I have no clue which one I'll pick.

I'm a she. :D And no worries - I'm from southern California. Besides, at second-look for Davis, the students did tell us that you could sometimes smell the cows in the morning. :laugh:

I do love both schools equally though, so I wish I had the financial aid info for them. That might've made the deciding a lot easier.

Is USC taking forever with the Fin Aid packages? I don't understand why a school would take a long time... either they think they are so good people will pay anything to go there or they suck at fin aid and want people to choose them without knowing that they will get nothing! A 6K grant, though... that is impressive seeing as how UCI is only going to be 22K.
