I always got denied before and it just let me access the website! I guess this means I'm in? I'm almost too nervous about it being a mistake to get too excited haha.

'Grats.


Thank you. FWIW it took less than a month for me and your numbers are both higher than mine, so hopefully you won't have to wait too much longer!

Congrats! I know I'm being semi-paranoid here, but does your app status still say Complete or Decision? Mine is stuck at Complete, but I was able to log in to the admitted students site.

Yeah, no kidding! Now those of us who have reason to be concerned can get back to worrying. Congrats, though, Sophie!

No official decision for me, but I've been able to login to the ASW and the mail/money page.

So Dean Z said that they only update the admitted students site access list once per day.

Does anyone know when this is?? I would love to only check the site once per day, but I have no idea when it's updated. I haven't been going overboard, but it would be nice to know when I should check and just be confident that it is final for that day.

Anyone had a "Tried at YY time not able, tried again at XX time and was able to get in" kind of thing?

hahaha sadly, I think i have a pretty good idea. Having pulled all-nighters the past two nights, the status check updates to the next date at exactly 6AM, and somebody a few posts back said that at 6AM they were able to get into the admitted students site

I went ahead and checked either on a whim, but I'm curious as to whether folks think its a good or bad thing.


I got accepted for summer start, and it is appealing to me as someone who graduated in May and has been doing really menial crap since. I'm thrilled about any excuse to quit my job a couple months early. Also, starting in the summer would presumably make the transition from California to Michigan more bearable climatically.

It definitely means having to make a decision more quickly, however...lots of pressure.

Anyway, congrats on Michigan and Berkeley! Next time you talk to Dean Tom, please put in a good word :)

I'm really regretting not applying ED. I'm exactly at the medians. A 169 and a 3.71 (or something, I can't figure out the LSDAS GPA thing).

I mean, those scores are the median for a reason, and from all the data across the universe that have looked at are telling me I have a good shot, but still. Nerve wracking. Racking? Eh.

Oh, well. :(

Truly lucky- bad judgment haha
