Nope...I was actually wondering about that. Any idea how long it takes them to show up?

I'd imagine soon. Maybe they're making more decisions today and they'll send all the emails out tonight?

At least, I hope.


Just to update--received the acceptance email at about 12:30 pm EST today.

In today via email. UR mid November. 173/3.8.

Anyone know if they will help defray the cost of travel to visit even if it isn't during ASW? I'm going to be out of the country.

No, but there is a person you can contact and ask about it on the admitted site's ASW section.

I also feel like there have been a disproportionate number of high lsat/gpa acceptances relative to their medians. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN BERKELEY???

They are tired of people talking crap about their numerical qualities. 170 median this year like other T14's?

For all I know they could be shooting for that (and if so ADMIT ME - I WILL HELP), but I find it hard to believe that a lot of these 171+/3.8+ admits will end up at berkeley

yesss! my virtual existence has been recognized and i now feel appreciated!!!!!!! this is not sarcasm; you really just made me smile. I live in the rural central highlands of a developing nation and nobody here knows of or cares about Berkeley (or any school other than Harvard, for that matter). This is one of the only sites that my 2g modem (which averages about 30kb/sec) can handle. TLS is my only source of ego-food and that was scrumptious so thank you!

just to add a datapoint, 169 here (3.92) and got in like 2 days before thanksgiving (and proceeded to get 2 tickets which now require an addendum but w/e, might as well go balls out celebrating, right?)
