Anyone else still waiting on a matching decision? Wondering how many of us are left

Yep. The school I used has a 5/1 deposit deadline so hopefully I'll hear back soon...

I am as well. I expect there might be some more decisions this week, since it seems most other schools require a deposit by the 30th or the 1st.

Match denied today. I submitted for Chicago and my deadline for them is the 30th. I'm going to Berkeley anyway though...planning on using LRAP. Still disappointed.

Also denied today. Submitted in early April (I think) with Michigan. Glad to see others saying they're still going - so am I. Excited, but significantly more terrified now.

Does anyone know if they are done giving out scholarships?

Also, has anybody else had difficult communicating or getting in touch with the financial aid office? I made an appointment to talk to them and they canceled it because they don't have Skype (I live outside of the US) and didn't suggest any alternative method of communicating. I'm surprised bc I'm certain they have a lot of international students...

Granted a partial match today. I definitely expected a rejection and was about to happily commit to UChicago, but rethinking everything now...

We are writing to inform you that the Berkeley Law scholarship consideration and awarding process is now complete.

We are no longer considering scholarship applications, nor making any new scholarship offers.
If you have not already been offered a scholarship, no scholarship offer is forthcoming.
We are no longer accepting Matching Scholarship applications and will not consider any further requests for matching, nor will we reconsider offers we've already made.
If you have received an award (Matching Scholarship, Dean's Fellowship, named scholarship, etc.) your award offer is final. We will not increase existing scholarship offers.
We are still accepting requests to defer admission. If you are granted a deferment and have a scholarship offer, you will automatically be allowed to defer the scholarship, too.
Thank you for your patience during our scholarship review process.


Booooooo. Welp, now everyone knows, you're officially SOL

Still no luck with the SLR here. Just set up and updated email today and will try again tomorrow.

Also is it just me or does Berk's SHIP plan look pretty good on paper?

Hey guys, been lurking for a bit but thought this was worthy of a first post: just got a Dean's scholarship offer this morning AFTER getting both the emails denying my matching and informing me no more offers were coming. Needless to say a nice surprise. See you in the fall!

I filled it out a couple months ago, before they said it would even be available. Still haven't gotten a determination/decision yet though.

So has anyone made any progress with housing, or is it still too early? Are people using CalRentals or relying on on-campus housing?

It probably depends on when you're looking - I know there are a lot of apartments posted for June 1, a handful for July... but I'll be looking for August 1. I submitted on-campus housing but will be trying to find a place on my own because I have a dog (if I only end up with university housing, the pups will be spending time with friends and/or family until I figure it out!). CalRentals is good for 3 months so I will sign up this weekend probably - will let you know how functional it is!
