After being stuck in the winter snow hell of the midwest, sunny California sounds perfect right now. :-).

You do realize that the decisions have already been made?... they're just sitting in some IT guy's office while he loads it up and gets ready to publish to the database. Maybe this happens tomorrow. Maybe Friday. Knowing that the decision has already been made, but I just don't know what it is yet, is somehow calming. What's done is done. 8)

edit: see what I did there, Berkeley? I'm in a zen state, one could even say a meditative state. I'll fit in and I'll stand out.

I hesitate to be the first to post, especially because I never do as you can see, but I wanted to let you all know that Berkeley is officially admitting 2/19 FR applicants. I received a phone call from Dean Tom this afternoon letting me know that I was accepted. I am still in complete disbelief and could not be happier. I wish all of you guys the best of luck :)

Congrats and good luck to all of you! I am jealous that you guys have at least been officially considered instead of sitting in non-FR silent limbo since 11/18.

Congrats to those who received phone calls already!

The bright red update on page one cracked me up... really, it wasn't a great idea to check this before bedtime.
Good luck tomorrow!

Wow, 6 steps of grieving and a bowl of oatmeal later, and I'm mentally prepared for heartbreak.

Prove me wrong, dean tom. PROVE. ME. WRONG.


actually, please don't. Please send a nice congratulatory email. Xoxo, miamiman

Right there with you. Pretty sure today will mark the end of my "winning" streak.
