So you missed the deadline back in November. Or you realize now you want some other options. Here’s the LAUSD list of space available magnets. While it’s not likely folks will want to transfer mid-year, it’s worth contacting them. Or look at this list for future low applicant pool schools.
Look at the list here. ***Correction: this is the list for 2015-16. The 2016-17 list is not on the website yet, but I suspect going into the application will garner the list.
There are some really GREAT schools on this list, either newer magnets or magnets competing with nearby schools for students, or even schools people dismiss for all kinds of reasons.
Apply to these and you’re essentially guaranteed to get in. They have fewer applications than openings, so even if somehow you get waitlisted on this group, some of the original applicants will turn down and your student will get in.
This list will also be SUPER helpful for folks next year to predict which years they might get a surprise acceptance.
