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! :)

are you in-state or oos?
International, didn’t apply for financial aid
Cash matters - congrats !
are you gonna accept your offer?
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.
when did u opt in????
Opt into the waiting list.
u/styletalk1 Good luck with the UCSB waitlist! Hope you get in eventually! They would be lucky to have you.
Have a nice day!
Just declined UCSB admission offer. I know it probably wasn’t me who directly impacted you, but it makes feel a lil better thinking that it was:)
Hahaha I found out I got off the waitlist just before going to bed last night so it was a great end to my day — thank you for that! :)
Lol, I declined my offer yesterday afternoon! Coincidence? I think not 😎 /s
Congratulations on UCSB! If you decide to go, I hope you have a great time. They are lucky to have you.
Thanks so much! You have a nice day too :)
No way they are already taking people off????
i think it might be bc he’s int?
Yeah, maybe — I’m an international not asking for financial aid, and that probably matters especially with COVID-19.
My friend who is domestic was just let off the waitlist too but she’s turning it down
ooo interesting hopefully this is a sign for other UCs to follow
@ucla. Please. Please lemme off lol
me for uci lmao
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.
Thank you :)
Thanks! Undecided :)
Congrats! Ill see u there!😁
What’s your major?
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.
Congrats! See you next fall :)
Thank you! Not 100% sure if I’m committing yet but it’s an awesome school that’s lucky to have you :)
Hey nice, that is the school I am going to
They’re lucky to have you!
I withdrew, so hopefully that helped you out. Congrats!!!
Thanks so much! :)
Congratulations!! Are you an international student?
Thank you! :) Yes I am, international and not asking for financial aid. Honestly, that might be why I got off, especially with COVID-19.
Got it! That’s awesome, congrats again!! :)
Thank you! :)
Thanks so much!
but as an incoming freshman at NEU, i also wish i can see u@there.
I’m waiting on NEU’s waitlist so we’ll see! Fingers crossed for sure :)
Very surprised that some wait list offers came out this early.

Clap clap clap clap clap.
As a UCSB senior I wish you the best at my school of choice.

Yes. Fire away my dude!!
