It's very relaxing and fun. Actually it was the least stressful interview I've had so far. ;)

Btw, why did you change your nickname? I liked calguitar w/o 84 better.

UCLA rocks!!! I love the school so much. That's sad that they did not ask me "why UCLA?"

So if you haven't heard back from them yet, what does that mean? Am I still in the races or can I just kiss my dreams good bye?

It seems that UCLA has only sent out a half of interviews so far.

Is the other half being sent out after Dec 1st?


I think they'd resume as early as sometime in next week since Dec. 2nd is the last interview date that they have assigned so far. It won't make sense if they send you an invitation for Dec. 5th on Dec. 2nd. Assuming that they'd give you at least a week to prepare for a trip, they should send out a few invitations sometime in next week.
Of course if they decide to skip Dec. 5th, then it's possible that invitations will be sent out after dec. 1st.

I submitted:
-AADSAS: June 23
-Secondary: Sept 10

Since I submitted on the "earlier" side, does this mean they've probably skipped over me and I shouldn't expect an interview?

In other words: people that have gotten interviews--did any of you submit application materials AFTER this date?

Dec. 5th is a go! They just sent out invitations for it today via email. So so excited - keep your hopes up everyone! There are still a lot more interviews to be offered since they haven't offered enough interviews to fill their class yet.

Oh, and I submitted AADSAS in mid May and my secondary at the end of July / early August. DAT was mid June. So, no they have not already overlooked you if you submitted it early - I thought that too.

Good Luck and Go Blue! I could use some fellow wolverines to celebrate great victories like last night!

Hey guys, this is my first post in a while.

I got an interview at UCLA on Dec 5th as well. I submitted my AADSAS in mid June and turned in my secondary application mid August.

For the ones who interviewed at UCLA already, I was just wondering if you guys can tell us how the essay portion of the interview day went.


By the way, it's kind of funny how close our ID's are Calguitar and Calguitar84. Calguitar 84, are you from Berkeley also?
