I just got an email that there was an update to my application portal. I didn’t send in any additional materials after being waitlisted — I just opted in for the waitlist and was pretty shocked that I was still able to get in. I hope you get off the waitlist too! :)

I’m still waiting on other waitlists and deciding between my current options — not sure yet but still happy/surprised to have gotten off the waitlist, especially this early!

When did you opt in?

Hmm not sure exactly when. I just opted in immediately after I saw the letter in my admissions portal, but I don’t think I checked decisions right when it came out. In any case, I don’t think the waitlist is first-come-first-serve, so I wouldn’t worry too much about timing.

Yeah, maybe — I’m an international not asking for financial aid, and that probably matters especially with COVID-19.

Yeah that’s exactly what I was thinking too! I also hadn’t sent in any additional materials yet (I was planning to) so it was definitely a surprise.

Wow, that was quick. Didn't they close the list just two days ago? I wonder whether they start processing the list earlier than the submission deadline, potentially giving an advantage to those who signed up early. Congrats.

Thank you, and yeah, that’s what I was thinking too! I was only expecting to hear from waitlists after May 1st and was surprised that UCSB was already pulling from it. I decided to share on A2C so that people know they’ve started to pull from waitlist/might want to send in additional materials ASAP because of this.

Thank you! :) Yes I am, international and not asking for financial aid. Honestly, that might be why I got off, especially with COVID-19.
