The former Dean is in the news again today. Former Dean Choudhry is apparently fighting to retain is faculty/tenure status.

If he remained a faculty member, would any students want to take a class with him?

Yeah, to be honest I can't imagine remaining as a faculty member would be an enjoyable experience for anyone involved, including Choudhry. I'd imagine he would be very embarrassed to be around students and faculty after all of this.

At the top you should find the link right under 'Welcome [your name]'



:mrgreen: Strange, I swear that link was not there last time I checked.

Has anyone else not even received their initial financial aid offer yet? And neither the Admissions nor the Financial Aid office is responding to emails/phone calls. This is ridiculous!!!

All I've received is a partial matching scholarship, but they haven't gotten back to me at all about the possibility of additional merit funding.

I see the "Welcome [your name]" line but there is definitely no link under it for me. So maybe you checked accurately but something changed. Now what could that something be...

It's sad that the only solace we have through this is that there are others suffering the same thing.

Heard back today that they will not be matching at all, so I will be withdrawing. Admittedly I filled out the form late in the game, but still a surprise!

Did you fill it out before or after their April 15 "priority deadline"?

I have gone deep down the rabbit hole and am looking for any sign of hope that Berkeley might want to give me *something* with my matching scholarship application.
So on that note, the "My Finances" tab on CalCentral is now just has a message that says: "You do not currently have any Financial Aid information ready to view. Please check Financial Aid & Scholarships or contact Cal Student Central for more information."

Could this be a sign that they're sending out offers today? Or do we think their system is just down...?

FWIW, I was offered a matching scholarship via email last week and it still hasn't shown up on CalCentral at all. So don't think that if CalCentral isn't showing anything that there's no hope :D

Yea same, I got the offer, and have already signed the acceptance form for the offer, and gotten the confirmation of that, but still not on CalCentral.

Does anyone know if you receive separate matching and need based offers, is your total offer the two combined or just the higher of the two?

Sorry if this has already been discussed or if the answer is obvious.
