Hi, for the last year people largely got the mail from February 24 to 28. And yes, there is a case who received an e-mail on Feb 15. but Monday of the last week of February (Feb.25) is the most people were contacted for the acceptance! On the other hand, rejection seems to have been mailed at once on Monday, the first week of March. I am also an applicant and this is what I have looked over here.

Just checking back in - anybody heard anything?
Nah, for me even if I get any news from the school, I have to wait another week because it come through the scholarship foundation. Anyway congrats on your UCLA admission! May I ask if you get in UT too, which one would you choose and why?

Thank you! If I get into UT, I will deliberate between the two. I like each program for different reasons. Ultimately, I feel I will end up going to UCLA because I really love the workshop style of the program and LA is where I want to end up. But, we'll see:)
