Berkeley Faculty Review Support Group 2010

Postby 0L Hoping for 1 » Tue Feb 02, 2010 12:43 pm

For all of the anxiety, shame, heartbreak, excitement, sadness, or happiness that may come from FR. Here we can discuss it..

I will start this thread off because I have a question, has anyone done any research on getting any money/matching offers after getting accepted off FR?

T MINUS ITS TOMORROW, ALL PANIC

Great idea for a thread... haven't done any research on matching. But counting down the days... If I remember right, t-minus 17? Anybody send in a LOCI?

You reminded me about needing a countdown! Also, I did not send in a LOCI because I figured that was best for waitlist and I put Berkeley in my PS

Ahh. This thread will be home sweet home for the next two weeks. Thanks 0L. :)

Should we take bets on what day decisions will start to roll out? Based on last year's thread, it looks like they were quoted 2/20/09 in the letter and all decisions - admit/WL/rejects - seemed to come out on Thurs 2/19/09. So are we looking at hearing something around Thurs 2/18 this year?

I am going to place a bet on 2/18 starting at around 3pm

Ahhh, home.
I did not write a LOCI because I had nothing to add that was not redundant or sound too close to begging. :|

this thread is the definition of "what i don't need more of in my life" (obsessing about law school instead of eating/sleeping/doing my job).



LOVE IT.

And I sent a LOCI, even though I had Berkeley in my PS. It was a pretty dramatic love letter... let's hope they feel flattered.

Regarding matching scholarships... I've read from last year's threads that you can later send them ONE scholarship offer from a T14 (except NU and maybe another school). They would only match up until the point where the cost of attending Berkeley would be equal. However, Berkeley only matches scholarships for a select few.

I read on their website that if you haven't been claimed as a dependent by your parents on their last five tax returns, the school does not consider their income/assets. That's good news.

This is where I belong. Sending an LOCI. Any thoughts on sending an additional recommendation, even though they didn't ask for it?

I sent a LOCI and had another rec lined up, but decided against it. I don't want to come off as annoying and add to their already dense reading load. That being said, if it's a targeted letter of rec, it might be something to consider.
