For those who were rejected, what makes you think you were rejected and what are some ways to improve? I got rejected as well, so just wondering since i thought the interview went well!

 

Also, where are your upcoming interviews? Best of luck!

I was chatting with a few people that I interviewed with about this, we question the sheer number of interviews. Statistically when I interviewed only 21 spots remained. so 21/171 is not good odds. Then the scoring system I wondered about. We got a score from CASPA and I believe that is how we all got picked to interview, then they take that score and add the score (out of 100) for the interview and make the selection. My interview went really well and I was rejected. The two others I talked to that interviewed August 9-10 were rejected as well. So I really am not sure how it all went down. These are just some subjects we chatted about. Best thing to do is email Pam and see what the admins committee thinks each person can improve.

 

Anyway, a HUGE congrats to all those accepted and waitlisted! For those who attend it really seems like you will be in great hands. :)

I agree with what you've said! It just works out to low odds when you do the math. Also, when I interviewed, Pam Carden said, during the first night, that the faculty will sometimes fight to accept people, who they really liked, "from the bottom of the list," so the scoring system isn't the end all be all, either. Hope this helps anyone that will be applying to UC, again, and good luck in the program to the people who were accepted!

Just weighing in. I got waitlisted as well. I interviewed 9/13-9/14 and got the email at 10:20am this morning. Congrats to those of you who got accepted!! :)

An annoying question: did anyone receive a waitlist notification before 10:20? I am wondering if they started at the top/bottom of the waitlist or if it is completely random?

Anybody that has been accepted, have you received any information regarding housing and financial aid? is there a Facebook group for the entering class of 2018? 

I haven't received anything regarding financial aid or housing. I'm searching for housing on my own (I want a house because I have kids and animals) and not having the grestest luck. However, if apartment living is what you desire there are a million options! I recommend zillow and trulia. Apartments.com too.

Dana- my boyfriend and I found our house to rent on Zillow (but like you said the pickings are slim). I have a classmate who found a house to rent on Craigslist.

Jordan told me he will send an email out to all the accepted applicants who have sent their deposit by tonight about the Facebook group! I'm sorry, your buddy should have emailed you about that, but we have had a little bit of a crazy week with exams.
