    I interviewed at UCI, and I just noticed that I was out on the "alternate list." Does anyone know what this means? Is it basically a rejection or is the same as the wait list?

    Same as waitlist. Good number of people get off the list though, at least from what I observed last year on SDN. But then again, SDN is not representative of the general applicant pool.

    I think they call for acceptances and you get snail mail for waitlist.
