I got a call yesterday from an admissions officer to clarify the situation. He basically said as UCLA is part of the wider UC system, all acceptance recommendations made by the Anderson admissions committee need to be submitted to the wider UC Graduates Studies department for approval. He said they sent a big batch over and for bureaucratic reasons it’s taking longer than usual. He expects it will take 3-5 business days for things to get turned around.
Many thanks! I hope the approval is more of a formality lol
It sounded like it. He told me really not to worry at all.
