Their email said that decisions would come via email, but historically they have called people. Any guess?

I wouldn't say no such luck yet, east coast schools have been accepting people at like 4:30 EST, and it's only 2:30 PST.

I went complete on 6/14.

I'll be going to look at East Bay apartments this week - I'm a female, possibly my boyfriend will live with me, and definitely another female I went to law school with last year who was also admitted to Berkeley will be living with me. 3brs are usually a pretty sweet apartment spot, so feel free to PM me if you might be interested in joining. I'm thinking about probably living right by campus, but I love Rockridge and Piedmont Ave so I might go for the Temescal district (easy 15 minute-ish bus ride to the law school) instead.

Found out through the email, but just looked at the status check and it says the same as above..."Congratulations..." etc.

Top 5% in class at Bay Area T3 (3.97 gpa w/ 6 CALIs, so almost certainly 1st in class), secondary journal and case note in secondary journal, previous publications.

So I turned my application in literally on the day it opened. That may be why they got back to me so fast. Good luck everyone who hasn't heard back yet!
