I'm also wondering this, I saw on the admitted students site a "facebook group" but it wasn't an actual facebook page :?

I noticed that, haha. A bit odd. Maybe they'll still make a real Facebook group?

Does anyone have any insight on scholarships? The packet mentioned them for those who qualified, but I don't see anywhere to explore that further without contacting the office. Would I already be aware of an offer or have scholarship offers not gone out yet?

99% positive offers have not gone out yet. My impression from the website is that the first round of offers don't come in until around ASW :/.

Really excited to be checking in here!

I grew up in California, but I don't currently live there. My understanding is that I'd be eligible for in-state tuition under AB540 because I attended and graduated from a California high school. Anyone know if that's accurate?

Hey, I'm a 2L at Berkeley. First off, congrats! Anyhow, yes, you'll be eligible for the in-state tuition due to having graduated from a California high school (speaking from personal experience). Just a heads-up, you're going to be asked for a copy of your high school transcript.

Awesome -- thanks!

I just got a rather long email from the professor who acts as Director of the environmental law program (I specified that I am interested in environmental law on my application). Pretty impressive on Berkley's part.

Got the same thing. I just skimmed it so far, but I agree. I want to go to Berkeley really pretty bad. I hope they give me enough of a scholarship offer to make it make sense for me to go.

Hello! I was admitted last week and wanted to say hi!

When will we have a good idea of what the financial package will be?

Does Berkeley only have 1 ASW? I really want to go to Berkeley's ASW but it overlaps with other ones.

Almost 100% sure it's just the one, but someone correct me if I'm wrong!

Also, bought my plane tickets this weekend for ASW! :D :D :D

ASW for Berkeley is full out of pocket, right? I'd love a nice Cali weekend.

Nope, $300 subsidy for out of state.

Checking in!!

Is Berkeley at all flexible on the travel stipend for ASW? I couldn't be further away and plane tickets are already much more than 300... :roll:

I'm in the same boat and from what I've heard, unfortunately no. But do share if you somehow find a way to solicit more money!

When is the ASW?

I haven't been admitted... and honestly not too confident that I will. However I'll be visiting another school in California for one of their ASW's and I would like to try to coordinate it just in case a miracle happens. I live across the country so I want to plan ahead just to mitigate any potential costs.

Thanks. Congrats to all of you!!

If any current students are on here... Any insight into the process of finding housing? I've heard that it is pretty common to find an apartment and be able to sign a lease and move in pretty quickly thereafter... is that true, or is there more advanced planning helpful/necessary? Also, any suggestions about where are the best places/buildings/neighborhoods to live? Give us your beautiful and lovely advice. All of the advice.
