    hey trying, I have no idea how it's gonna be. I think we should ask UCLAmedstudent. He seems very informative about this kind of thing.

    waddup you guys!!

    i'm dreadfully uninformed, so what's happening in march or april or whatnot? is that the weekend for people who are so damn talented that they have to be convinced and persuaded to go to ucla?

    anyways, if it's an opportunity to head down to la, see friends, meet you all--and destroy my liver--i'll see you all there. -minh

    Trying, If you choose Hopkins over UCLA, I''ll make sure during winter time, a post-card will be sent your way with a picture of me, of course hahaha, and maybe photogirl and a bunch more M1 sunbathing at Santa Monica beach LOL. jk. Well, I hope you will have fun at Hopkins too. Let us know how it goes.

    I have this ~40 yo tennis partner. He's a pretty successful (married, children, happy, rich & a great serve) businessman with dif pharms. In all likelihood, a pretty credible source of information about the medical field. When he found out I was going to ucla med (his alma mater), he gave me a high five and told me in the most straightforward and judicous voice: "There's a lot of ***** in LA."

    Take that to heart, trying, when you pack those parkas and snowpants for Baltimore. It's not to late to send in a letter of intent (and retract one..).

    I just wonder why UCLA doesn't ask us to send in deposit to keep our spots like other schools do. Anyone knows?

    Have fun visiting the University of Spoiled Children... apparently they lack some funding, as they did not have the money to send me a rejection letter. Rather they asked that I "download the decision letter from my status page..."

    Too bad you USC foofooheads! I forgot my password--that's how impt you are to me...

    Go UCLA:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Hi Guys:

    Have any of you received any word as of yet regarding second look weekend or any mail from UCLA. It seems such a long silence since we were accepted.

    Anyways, look forward to seeing you all at second look.

    What login page are we talking about? Is it the link on the bottom of the accepted students page for the checklist? I feel like I'm missing something. Has anyone recieved anything regarding second look?

    Assuming you too are OOS?

    Who needs grilled salmon when there is awesome Mexican food? Ivy League food sucks ;)

    hey guys,

    Just got my acceptance letter today. UCLA definitely stood out in my interviews as my favorite school. Anybody else trying to decide between UCLA and UCSF or Yale by chance?

    I apparently just got it at my permanent address in orange county yesterday (I'm temporarily on the east coast right now). Are you out of the state right now?

    i think it was 960. but i just read that if you choose to go for the two person townhouse they can set you up with someone.

    the single person townhouse was like 30 bucks more. and the two person apartment was around 940. hope this helps.

    from the pictures the place looks almost too nice. some kind of urban shangrila fortress. to be honest, it's too close to campus for me. and we're talking about weyburn here.

    Hi all.....

    Has anyone submitted the SIR/SLR things yet? I am still waiting on just one school that, if they accept me, might sway me away from UCLA, and I'm a little afraid that the SIR (statement of intent to register) is "binding". Anyone know?

    Other than that, happy to meet you all! :)

    Don't let the cacaphony of myriad admissions offers distract you--come to UCLA!!!:) :) :)

    I would call the registrar and ask them if it is binding, but I don't think it is, from memory of filling it out. I think there was some notation on the page that you could withdraw it if you changed your mind. Best of luck!

    I got my housing offer email on Fri. (04/06) and they asked me to go to some link to accept the offer. When I clicked on it, there was some glitch during my log-in. I had no idea what happened but later on, it showed that I already accepted the offer. So basically I had no idea what the offer was. In my housing application, I put down studio as my preference. Does it mean I got the studio or it could be something else? Did this happen to other people? I m thinking to call them on monday and see what's going on.
