I submitted my app over the weekend meaning they got it yesterday and I'm under review... today :shock:

On LSN it seemed like they were pretty slow last year, but one day between receiving it and going under review this year... Dang Berkeley, they got their stuff together!

No they didn't. I submitted 9/22, under review yesterday. You guys just came in right as they started to review. I hope they go by order of completion because otherwise I submitted a month ago for nothing lol

It looks like this means they're properly looking at applications and not just giving us BS 'under review' statuses. Hopefully they are reviewed in the order they went complete.

I dunno. Seems like a ton of people went under review all at the same time, which seems a bit odd--how many apps can they really be actively considering at any given point? I submitted 10/13, went complete 10/14, and went under review 10/18. Surely there are tons of people ahead of me in the pile...

I'm pretty sure the general consensus last year was that being "in review" doesn't mean much. Some people "in review" since mid-October during the last cycle went to faculty review mid-Jan/Feb, and thus were in review for over 3 months. I wouldn't fret over which app gets seen before others, etc etc...it really doesn't matter. Pretty much all apps will go in review within a week of being complete, regardless of numbers or when you submit.

No but he did say that some of the apps that are "under review" have already been reviewed. So I take that to mean some decisions have been made? They just haven't notified anyone yet. Based off past cycles it looks like early november.

Quickly?? They started accepting apps in september I believe. A lot of people will have multiple decisions by the time UCB decisions come out..

Yes took me 27 days to go from submit to complete. I think the decisions that come out mid November will be September applications. Well I hope.
