    As someone pointed out, the UCLA thread is rapidly approaching 1000 posts, and, with all the status page changes, it seems it will go over any day now. Here's a feeble attempt to start anew - we'll see if it takes..... :)

    GOOD LUCK everyone who had status changes! Hope AWESOME news is coming your way! :D :luck:

    Two were started at nearly the same time, I changed this title per your suggestion in the other thread - I, too, like it better (the title that is).... As to which we're using - who knows? :eek: haha :D

    use this one. The title is more fitting. So no status page for you then? I need to hear what happened with Dopa's status page then I can really decide what these letters will be. With no change for you or QM its not looking so good.

    it seems to me that this year will more closely follow the 2005 pattern, unless all of the people in the first 2006 batch got scholarships. I suppose it could also be a mixed bag…but I’d rather be optimistic :) *shrug*

    How about some of the top places you guys have been accepted. I would feel better hearing people got accepted to top ranked schools and had a status change today :)

    I am sorta middle of the pack.
    BU
    AECOM
    UC Irvine

    Why do you say that? Maybe I'm a rejection and this batch is all acceptances? It's hard to tell. When the first people (So. Cal) start posting then we'll have a much better idea!

    Yea, so no status page change for me.... Man, this bites.... I'd really love to get into UCLA, and I'd also really like to know where I stand..... :cool:

    Good :luck: narc! And good :luck: all!!!!

    Also, I'm middle of the pack, almost exactly the same list as narc.

    Status change today! :) Interviewed late December. I'm in Berkeley right now, but it's being mailed to my parents' address in southern California. I'll be there this Friday through Monday. Sure would be great if it arrived sometime then ... It would be nice to open an envelope for myself for once. (Gotta love calls from your mom letting you know you've been rejected from Harvard ... and UCSD ... and UCSF ... and Baylor ... the list goes on)

    I really don't understand this whole status page thing. I suppose it is to avoid phone calls, but all it really results in is all of us spending a few days totally freaking out (in contrast to the past several months of mild to moderate freaking out).

    Anyway, good luck to you all! :)

    The letter was thin. It had only 1 single sheet in it and if you have scholarship, there will be another sheet. Actually, you can tell if you get accepted or not before opening the letter (well, at least in my case, from the way the letter was folded). You could see some words through the clear window on the envelop. Good luck all. I bet it will be all acceptances. UCLA is too busy to decide who they wanna be in their class, they won't have time to send out letters of rejection yet. Plus, you guys are all awesome applicants, they need to look at your files over and over so they can't reject anyone yet. Good luck and dont forget to visit UCLA class of 2011 thread when you hear the good news. AGAIN, GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:luck: :luck: :luck:

    Aerith, I would say either fri. or sat. I know it sucks during this waiting time. It made me feel like having butterfies in my stomach the entire day. Well, I m sure it will be worth the wait when u open the letter with an acceptance. Good luck!!!!!!!

    I have never posted on this thread, but I always read it. Anywho, I interviewed in late Jan and still no status update. I just called the admissions office and the nice lady told me that the dean hasn't signed letters yet. Don't really know what that means. Does the dean also have to sign for rejections or only acceptances?

    Just wanted to say that i think it's highly unlikely anyone will get them today. If they were sent yesterday through campus mail, it will take a little longer to reach everyone. I believe last time they were mailed Friday & people got them on Tuesday (?) - that's 3 or so days for S.Cal people to receive it - that would put this time at Saturday for So.Cal & Monday for No.Cal & beyond?? Anyways, I hope for everyone that the mail processes more quickly this time! GL EVERYONE!!! :luck:

    anyway...is ucla first choice for everyone on this thread? if not...what other schools are u deciding on? (that is if you have other acceptances)

    I interviewed in mid-November and still no status change.

    I called the admissions office this morning and they said that they are still in the process of sending out acceptances and that she would expect I would hear something by the end of the month..I'm assuming this means UCLA will be sending out all final decisions: acceptances, waitlist and rejections shortly!

    :luck: to all that got status changes!

    I think this batch will be mixed. (or waitlists/holds)

    If you look at the stats of people who got the status change and people who didnt, there are unbelievable numbers in both groups (change vs no change).

    Best thing to do is just wait til someone reports back... :( which probably wont happen until friday (or more likely saturday)

    To those who are accepted already....

    is the signature on your acceptance letter hand signed or computer generated?
