When do you even get an offer for money? I imagine that all happens when FAFSA is done?


The admitted site has all the info so wait for the log in. You can fill in an interest form and/or submitting a peer school offer (T14 - NU). You will probably hear back in April if not earlier.

Updated transcript processed today by LSAC (GPA +.02) - we'll see if Berkeley gets it before I'm dinged or sent off to committee review.

UR starting today, my heart pretty much sank when I received the email. I thought for sure it was a rejection.

Sorry if this has already been addressed, but I got my admitted packet on Monday, and the email last Wednesday or so. When should I be expecting the admitted login email?

YES that was actually what I was thinking of.

I read the Boston mean temperature and my face just fell

then the quotation marks around "mean" finished the job

4 days for me but that was the first wave, so it may be quicker now.

It was 50 or so when I visited 3 weeks ago, and they said it was awful weather.

Four days from the first email or from the physical packet?

4 days from the first email (the admit letter). It took a while for me to get the packet because I'm on the east coast.

Hmm. It's been five days for me, and I received another email about admissions and a program there, but no login information email. I suppose I'll wait a couple more days and then send them an email.

UR since 11/22 and driving me equally crazy...not really sure what to make of my chances b/c of my bad GPA and the fact that LSN has a nice little (read:big) empty space where my numbers would go on Boalt's graph...

+1. Your numbers, and acceptances, make me feel pretty good about being in the same boat as you.

no email, but found this on a casual check of my status checker:

"Your application at UC Berkeley Law School has passed an initial administrative review and has been selected for further consideration by the Faculty Admissions Committee."

I'm pumped... Boalt is a huge numerical reach, but a for sure fit for interests and backgrounds. Even just not getting auto-dinged is huge for me!

FWIW: I had been UR 11/1

anybody know what the turn-around has looked like in past cycles? does the committee solicit additional information? is it appropriate to send a LOCI at this point?
