I regret to convey to you that your application for admission to UC Santa Barbara has been denied by the Department of Computer Science.
Faculty members in the Department of Computer Science have carefully reviewed your scholastic record, academic goals, preparation for graduate study in your field of interest, and all supporting materials. Since the number of applicants to the Department of Computer Science far exceeds the number of slots for admission, only those with the strongest overall records are accepted. Sometimes even outstanding applicants whose research interests match closely those of our faculty may not be accepted.
My colleagues and I appreciate your interest in the University of California, Santa Barbara, and we regret that the decision could not have been favorable. We wish you the very best in your educational endeavors.
Acting Dean, Graduate Division
