UCLA Decision Status


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I have a question regarding UCLA's decisions website.


I posted this in SDN, but thought I'd see if anyone else has this issue.


I applied to the community health sciences program and received confirmation emails that my application was received/submitted. I know that there is probably an online lag time for the decisions website, but when I try to log in on the decision status page, it says "No applications for this email address were found. Please try again."

Did this happen to anyone else?
I am just wondering if the decisions website status page should say that my application is under review or something.
I did call the department 2 days ago and the person who spoke to me said I should be fine, but she didn't really give me any peace of mind! Just freaking out a little!

I got in Feb 5th via phone call and my decision status is still not updated on the site! They are just super slow. I emailed them last week and her response was that my paperwork is proceeding through the system and it can take quite awhile until all the approvals have been entered.

UCLA has been very frustrating to deal with. After my phone call acceptance a month ago, my online status still hasn't changed. I emailed them the first time, no response. Second time, I got a super short response saying the approvals are still in process. When I asked over the phone regarding funding and RA/TA opportunities, she said she'd look into it and email me back (isn't this standard info that the director should know?!). I did get an email the next day which was very vague and basically said I'd be on my own in looking for these opportunities. 


Now compare this with Berkeley. I got accepted the same day as UCLA via email. 2 days later, my decision status was updated with all information. A few weeks later, I received a scholarship award. I was also contacted by a current student to ask if I had any questions. When I emailed the director asking about funding and RA/TA opportunities, she immediately put me in contact with several professors and current RAs as well as set up a phone call with me to discuss the process.


If this is any indication of what the support will be like at UCLA, I'm really glad I'm going to Berkeley :)

I applied to the CHS program at UCLA a few years ago and the same thing happened to me! But I ended up getting accepted (and going there) so don't let it startle you too much. In terms of the support you get at UCLA, I found staff to always be very approachable, friendly, and supportive. However, this is all with the understanding that you're at a fairly large public university where no one is going to hold your hand. As long as you are on top of your work, you'll find the administrative staff to be a great help to you. Best of luck!
