I am. UR 6/17. I hate to be a downer, but I think we are sitting ducks.



Why would they be waiting to ding us? A bunch of dings went out last Thursday the 23rd.

I don't know, but I suspect the Law School Admissions committee gains longer life by feeding on our shattered hopes and dreams. The longer the wait the greater the bounty.



My guess is that we're a bit more borderline.

Same. Good luck everyone!

do we really need to do the immunization form? CalNet says yes, but didn't hear about needing to do it in email correspondence.. seems like a major headache.

Wow. That's odd. I actually live in Berkeley and haven't gotten it yet.

Nope. Just a magazine showing off the alumni/how diverse the school is.

And then a neat little magnet folder that had the letter and some things regarding housing, food, and such. Everything that can be found online.

I am! And it is an insane amount of work. I'm pulling double duty. A Write-On shift after work everyday this week. Hope I can pull it off.

Ditto. I'm kind of embarrassed at the quality of work I'll be handing in.

I said screw the write on and joined a different journal. All journals except Cal law Review are volunteer (meaning you pay and you're on).

"On average, about 130 students complete the packet and we accept between 50-60 of those students. On average, 25 students participate in the transfer Write-On and we accept about 8. The number of students we accept is subject to change."
That's from the CLR website.
