It's funny seeing the different groups of people in different threads. The NYU crowd's just been losing it...


A lot of time though it's the same familiar faces :P.


But they act differently!


Obrienfa, you spoke just in time...

I think we are going to be good friends if we end up at the same law school Habit!

Relieved to hear I'm not the only one! Despite loving this feeling of camaraderie, I hope to be out of this little club soon! :wink:

Ha, I wonder what they would say if you got the call and the first words out of your mouth were, "It's about fucking time!"

They say "excuse me", you say "sorry my boss was yelling at me."

I went to an admissions event with Dean Tom, and he said about 550 acceptances were decided by him and 250 by committee. There don't seem to be that many acceptances at this point. I bet there are more to be handed out by him before we head to committee.

Yeah that's what it says on their website too, so unless they just decided to be wayyyy more selective or everyone that got in doesn't go on LSN or tls, there should be more :)

Just FYI: All Berkeley buildings will be closed Wednesday, December 22 through Sunday January 2.
Not sure what this means for admissions, though. But I wouldn't be sitting by the phone.

Yeah that's what it says on their website too, so unless they just decided to be wayyyy more selective or everyone that got in doesn't go on LSN or tls, there should be more :)


To follow up on this line of thinking: I checked out LSN, and last year there were a total of about 170 applicants who registered as applying to Berkeley and who got accepted. This year, so far, there are only 31. Obviously maybe fewer people are filling out their profiles on LSN this year, but it's unlikely that it's majorly off-kilter from last year. Assuming the proportions are the same, then almost 5/6ths of Berkeley's offers have yet to be made. In which case Dean Tom has a lot of decisions left to make.

Hooray?

AD is more popular this year though than previous. I know that I don't use LSN in favor of AD.
