My app never goes complete Should I ask them why?

Postby victorrrj » Wed Jan 21, 2015 10:31 pm

I applied Berkeley on Dec 2, LAST YEAR. After a year, my app is still "received", though all the requirement is checked. No date change at all.
I am wondering if there is anything wrong with my app... Should I write an email to ask them about it? Or is it just that Berkeley doesn't change the status according to the process?

Or they glanced at my app and said "not worth my time" :oops:

I really like the school and I've got family there... Damn

email them politely.

I think you have good reasons to ask them

Is it a stretch school? They could have put you in a pile to review later in the cycle if you're numbers aren't that good.

After a year? As in you submitted on December 2nd, 2013???

If you mean December 2nd, 2014 it's probably not a big deal. Different schools have different status update timelines for different candidates.

They prolly feel bad admitting you and letting you ruin your life.

LSAT at their 75% but GPA is below the 25%. I do think it is a stretch
