Congrats! Any sense of whether everyone has been notified at this point?

Not sure,

In the email I received, they only gave me two 1.5-2 hour time slots to choose between and said the scheduling is going to happen quite fast. They are also closed Monday for President’s day so I expect a lot of people will hear back Tuesday.

For those that had the screener interview, what was that like? And do we know what to expect from the longer interview?

I'm in the same boat. Interviewing on March 27th in D.C. I had kind of written off UCLA, but this definitely changes the calculus.

Congrats!

I had the screener interview last week and it was a lot of just talking about yourself/your story relative to the fellowship and what you think you can contribute. I'm also not from Cali so they asked me "Why LA?" I believe the finalist interview is with a panel.

FWIW, they told me that finalists would be notified by the end of this week (specifically, "we'll be letting finalists know on Friday"), so it doesn't look great for those of us who haven't heard anything but I guess we'll know for sure soon enough.

Just for clarification, they'll be letting finalists know whether or not they've got the award on Friday, or they'll be letting finalists know they're finalists by Friday?

Letting finalists know they're finalists by Friday as in yesterday. Then they have the long interview. Since someone above said they're interviewing March 27, I imagine they won't know if they got the award until early April. Which seems to be cutting it close to deposit deadlines but since they're traveling to do the interviews I imagine they're moving the process along as fast as they can.

I was the one whose interview in on March 27. I don't know how they'll do interviews for people not in California, NYC, or DC though. I'm at Georgetown undergrad and my interview date coincides with their DC reception for admitted students so Dean Schwartz and other staff will be in town and the interview will be in person as a result. They have similar events in LA, SF, and NYC in March.

Ah okay! Thanks for all the info, guys! Guess I'll just wait on the regular aid packages:)

Are scholarship offers for us lay-folk coming pretty soon after Epstein/Achievement decisions? I think I saw early March somewhere on their website.

Also, has anyone received notice that they have NOT been admitted to Epstein? I was admitted early January and still have not heard anything from them.

Does UCLA provide travel stipends for visits? If so, how do we go about applying?

Only for the ASW weekend. I think it’s $200 or $250 so not that much. You should just call them, it’s easier than emailing.

Is anyone also coming from far far away interested in sharing a room on Sunday, March 4 before preview day?
