TTT, Around 5%
Some CA ties



Went under review 6/13


Update: Got in on 6/29 by email around 11:30AM. For next year, it seems they did a mass email at the same time to a lot of people.
Good luck!

3.7 GPA (top 15%-20%, not sure as rankings haven't come out yet) at a T1 in California. Unlikely but they waived the application fee so why not...

Hey everyone! Just went under review on the 16th. At a TTTT, top 5% (3.87), and two cali awards. Chance of being admitted?

I transferred to Berkeley with similar stats so it's definitely possible! Had strong Bay Area ties and some unique softs in addition, but essentially same rank/awards, etc at a TTTT. Good luck!

Maybe absurd, but 3.56 from MVP. Extremely strong CA ties. Chances?

Legit question: aren't you afraid of outing yourself with a screen name like "DankNug666"? Especially since if you get into Cal, they probably won't have very many transfers from Michigan... and your profile is very descriptive

ETA: you probably have good a chance

Lol. I literally didn't even apply. I was just curious.

Got an email from Berkeley on Friday that they anticipate to finish the review process by June 29. I guess we will start hearing from them pretty soon. Good luck everyone.
