Have any 4/4 admits received their Admit Package yet?


I received my package today. I was admitted on March 16 but the package was dated April 4. I guess they started sending admit packages on the same day, April 4. Btw, I am in Asia.



Has anyone else received an admit package? I was admitted on 3/8 and live on the West Coast but haven't received anything.

I received my admit package via FedEx on Thursday of last week, 4/5. I was also admitted on 3/8 and am just down in San Diego.

lol. Yep, literally within the same day. I've decided not seek to get off the waitlist as I've gotten accepted by my top choice, but it was surprising to have finally gotten that interview invite from Anderson but right after getting waitlisted.

Has anyone who did not receive a fellowship email received notice of fellowship in their offer letter? I have still not received my admit packet.

I was able to set up a myUCLA login last week and login without issue until about Thursday. Now, every time I try to login, I receive an error message.

I see an error page that says my ID is not linked to any UCLA accounts. Very strange and frustrating.

I just got off the phone with the myUCLA help desk because I was confused. myUCLA is separate from the "My Housing" site and both are separate from URSA (used to pay your "BruinBill"). However, all three use the UCLA logon and password you need to create, and all three login pages look exactly the same. I have logged into both the My Housing application website and the URSA website so far and didn't realize myUCLA is a third separate site. The help desk guy said he thinks grad students don't need myUCLA until we start registering for classes.

For any other wait listed candidates, I just got the following email from UCLA:

"We are currently examining our Wait List candidates in parallel with our Round 3 applications. At this point we expect to admit some people in early May, and others on or before June 6th. All applicants will receive an update by June 6th. Candidates who volunteer to stay on the wait list during the summer may be admitted at a later date."

Just FYI for the price,amenities and location, the UCLA housing complexes are unbeatable. Especially University Village on Sawtelle and Sepulveda Blvd.

I will second the fact they have great prices and some good amenities. You also have the peace of mind knowing your landlord is probably not trying to screw you, plus the lease is month to month. However, I will caveat that with taking your personal situation and noise aversion level into account.

I have a friend who lives in University Village, and if I had kids, it would be amazing to live there: onsite daycare, swimming pool, playgrounds, the works. However...when I went to visit her, her kids were jumping up and down, I could hear the neighbor kids jumping up and down and she said that you will be able to hear babies crying. There were literally kids everywhere. She said it doesn't bother her because she has kids, but personally, as a childless married couple, it would drive me and my husband crazy, especially if we were trying to work or study.

I also drove around the housing complexes further south. They cancelled the actual A-days housing tour, but I feel like I was able to get a good sense of the neighborhoods at least. If you have specific questions, feel free to PM me, but I will say, they are pretty far away from the action. I guess that can be a pro or a con depending on what you're looking for. Also it's about a 30 minute commute on surface streets, but there is a BruinBus shuttle that stops right in front of each southern complex, I believe once an hour.

I would sum it up by saying if keeping your housing budget as tight as possible is your number one priority and/or you have kids or a significant other who is looking for a real support network, the graduate family housing is a fantastic option. If you don't fit either of those categories, I think you can find a comparable place much closer to campus for a few hundred dollars more.
