Does anyone happen to know what the deadline is for deposits, etc? For those who are admitted
The deadline is April 15 though I'm sure if you are on a waitlist, they'll definitely give you more time for people who decline their acceptance. It seems as if they have a blind waitlist...I'm going to decline my acceptance either today or tomorrow so hopefully one of you can have my spot!
 
I called the department admissions office Wednesday and was told that not all admits have been notified and that all admissions decisions would be going out "shortly". I presumed "shortly" meant we'd have found out in the last couple of days, but I've heard nothing since that call. I've been answering every unlisted telemarketing phone call like a desperate ding-a-ling 😩

I understand the feeling...I really do.

But, so what? It means nothing! We’re still talented filmmakers, and we’re always creating something : )

I received the email/Acceptd message that I was waitlisted around 11am PST today. (My app status still shows as there being no decision made yet, though)

I'm admitted to UCLA and the process is a bit tricky.. I got the good news from TFT school on March 27, saying the formal admission letter is pending on the University's Graduate Division. Meanwhile I had to respond to the TFT school by April 15 about my decision. I replied immediately saying I would love to.

But the formal admission letter from the University didn't arrive until today (April 18), 3 weeks after the decision notification from the school. I logged in and officially accepted the admission just now, and NO deposit was required.

One thing to take is that the university graduate division's process is very slow. Hope my info helps. Good luck!

Another tip is that there's no use to check the appstatus webpage.. It remained 'no decision' until the formal admission letter sent out by the Graduate Division, 3 weeks after the school gave me notification.

So it's always a message on getacceptd.com first. no point to check appstatus

Well I wasn't expecting this, but this morning I received a call around 8:30a that I was taken off the waitlist and admitted into the Directing program! I send my sincerest wishes of luck to any remaining waitlisted applicants--there may be hope yet.
Congratulations!! That's awesome! :) Just curious.. since it seems like notifications for the program have been coming out so sporadically throughout the whole process.. were you told you were on the waitlist before the call? (if yes, can I ask how long ago you were told you were on the waitlist?) Congrats again and I wish you the best in the program!!

Thank you @Isabehl I appreciate it! I received an Acceptd message via email around 8pm on 4/15 saying I was waitlisted.

Thanks so much for the info! I think I received the message around 11am the next day.. I'm sure there are plenty ahead of me, but hey, that's still pretty close! Haha

Yeah no problem! I really hope you hear good news soon. The waitlist pool must be pretty small especially since the final cohort size is typically 18 at most, so hopefully you aren’t behind many others if anyone else at all. Good luck!
