Hi all,

I heard back via email last Friday (June 19). My app went in on June 15. Stats: Midwest T20, top 10%. Softs: Mandarin speaker, work experience abroad.

Good luck to everyone!

Congrats to all you admits. Berkeley was a close second choice for me. I'm definitely jealous you all will be enjoying the Bay Area while my I'm trying avoid losing my toes to frost bite. Is anyone for sure attending?

I'll for sure attend unless I'm admitted to HLS. As for losing toes to frost bite, I feel your pain. Seeking warmer climes was a major factor in my decision to leave Minnesota.

Anyone have any info on decent housing? Perhaps apartments, etc. in surrounding areas (like Oakland) that are close to transit options?

For ranking, should I round up to 6%, round down to 5%, or keep it exact at 5.3%?


Still waiting?
