It is possible. But from what I understand, Berkeley is very limited in using affirmative action (see bill SP-1). I don't know if that applies to financial aid. They did mention that the decisions will go out on a rolling basis, but that doesn't mean much. Let's hope we hear from them soon. I feel like this is the last piece of the puzzle for many people, including myself.

In the same boat here. According to LSN it looks like more scholarships have gone out today. Considering my ability to attend Boalt rests on this the wait is excruciating

Agreed, I'm sufficiently attached to Berk and if goes awry with scholarships I'll be devastated. It doesn't seem like they're going by admit date either

Nope, my admit date is earlier than the one reported on LSN. Come on, Berkeley, you know that we love you. Show us some love, too!

Is anyone who hasn't gotten a notification of an award able to see something on the Financial Aid website? I just see the MyFinAid banner and blank space below it. Not sure if that is normal or if something is going on with my browser.

I got a log-in screen, but when I logged in, this is what I got.

ETA: I got the same screen when I tried logging into the Admitted Students Website, so I think maybe something's going on with their system.

I can't even access the Cal Net ID Log in page to log into admitted students.

Thanks! I have been having issues using Chrome with NYU's aid portal so I wanted to check.

I just submitted a matching request last week and if Berkeley matches, I will be attending barring some sort of Stanford miracle.

Me neither now. I bet it's because they're so busy uploading all of our full rides. Jk.

Too many zeroes after the comma. The system can't handle it.

Edit: Was able to access the Net ID page but still can't log in.

I just got an e-mail from the admissions office titled "A Scholarship Announcement".... and it's another "please apply for this awesome opportunity" type of things.

LSN is showing 3 people reporting scholarships in the last few days. Really hoping to hear from them soon. They're the last piece of the puzzle.

I got the 3 or so emails about the Phoenix scholarship last week, but I haven't gotten any of the past couple emails people are talking about. Are these targeted URM scholarships?

The past couple emails have been targeted to all minorities, not just URMs.

Do you guys think it's worth it to apply to these if you're not a URM but are a minority?
