T3/T4 in the Bay Area
Top 2-3%
(Hoping that 4 Witkin's and a Cali might help with that whole school ranking thing)

Yeah seriously, 6/13 over here. I hope this 5 business days thing is wrong or I'm done.

I think it was someone referring to a trend they noticed reviewing last year's threads, but it wasn't 100% the case...

I don't think it's a good enough rule to swear by (unlike GULC username/password = acceptance, which I would swear by) but it's nonetheless something for our anxious selves to obsess over.

So if 5 business days means you're out, what does 20 calendar days mean?

I think we're long done :lol:.
Besides, I'm already in at a T14 with sub-par BigLawl placement :P :lol:.

(Seriously, though, Berk is awesome and congrats to those who got in).

The 5 calendar days thing comes from the fact that people who got initial offers were told to accept or decline by July 5. That doesn't mean anyone's out, though; my guess is that Berkeley will make more offers after that based on how many people decline.

Just got accepted via email from the dean of admissions! Went under review 6/17. He responded to an email I sent him expressing a compelling need to know ASAP. He said the official notice will be coming out w/in 48 hours...so I expect that means a batch will be coming soon.

Big congrats.

You have officially ruined my day: I went UR 6/16. Had given up. Will now be constantly checking status.

If you don't mind, what are your stats?

Top 5% at #35 and my status checker didn't change at all...so I wouldn't expect anything on that front.

No idea, I haven't gotten the official letter yet, just a quick one-liner from the dean.

That officially re-lifts my spirits. Dammit. Don't know if I can take it much longer.

The checker's all I've got during the work day. Personal e-mail blocked from work. Don't have a smartphone. Can't forward my e-mails to my work account. So, even though it won't tell me anything, I guess I'll still compulsively refresh the checker.

Congrats again.

I spoke to Admissions, they said that they should have 95% of their decisions made by Tuesday.

As in today, Tuesday?

That would certainly make getting back to UCLA before their deadline easier.
