  • To Pro-Waitlister: thank you so much for this info! Ugh, I really hope we hear closer to April 15th than the 20th...this is torture. Best of luck!
UCLACinema And Media Studies, PhD (F18)Wait listed via Other on 5 Apr 2018 I5 Apr 2018
  • Dear all: Thanks for all the updates from both masters/phd students. I have been waitlisted 5 times in the past two years for PhD film/cinema/media studies programs so this is what I personally know. No news is great news. Same thing happened to me at Cal-Berk last year (no accepted/rejected) so I called and was told about the waitlist. For those of us on the PhD waitlist, the majority of the programs wait until April 15 to finalize who has accepted or declined, after that, each program (so I've been informed by Cal, Texas, USC) will reevaluate the waitlisted applicants and "re-rank" them according to fit and POI availability. As I mentioned before, I feel like I'm a pro-waitlister at this point in my academic career. Best of luck to everyone. Thanks for all the comments and useful info.

  • UCLA Masters candidate who responded to my inquiry: thank you for that info! It’s so strange to have heard absolutely nothing at this point in time, and April 20th seems very late...oh well, we can only wait. I hope you get good news, best of luck! If any PhD candidates have additional info about hearing from the program, I would greatly appreciate it.

  • I know I\'m masters so this might not apply to you, but I also haven\'t received any notification of any kind. I declined an acceptance from another school in (desperate) hopes of good news from UCLA. I inquired about the wait, and they said the sheer volume of responses and the complications they had with application system are causing delays. By April 20th every applicant should hear back through email and/or their getacceptd profile Best of luck to you all.

  • Hi All, I haven’t received any notification at all--rejected/waitlisted/accepted--but reading below, I see that some people have already received messages about being waitlisted. Any advice about what no news might mean? Should I assume I have been rejected? Also where did you receive your notification? Thank you!

  • To the poster who responded to my inquiry: Thanks for the update. I hold two offers (one I've already declined) and the other I'm holding off for UCLA. I feel bad because I'm sure other waitlisted students at the school I hold an offer are waiting on me to accept or decline. Sucks. And good luck to you as well.
