What do you mean? Is the big batch of UCR a bad sign then?

It's not a bad sign. It means you were a competitive candidate, but not good enough to be admitted straightaway during the administrative review phase.

This is prolly true .... can we assume that Oct/Nov UR folks are now rejected since we did not go into Faculty Review??

looking at LSN last year, 2/18 was judgement day. About 10-15 acceptances, and a whoooooooooole lot of rejections.

No, I just mean last year two days before committee reviews started they rejected a lot of people, if you made it to committee review you're one of the lucky ones!

Just got the committee review email too, same dates.

Anyone know how many applicants are passed on to faculty review, and the approximate percentage of who gets admitted or rejected from the review?

(tough question, I know, but i'm always amazed by the collective wisdom of TLS :) )

Committee review isn't a bad thing. Lots of people get in through it, including me!

They say somewhere around the same percentage that get admitted in general, which I think is around 12%.

If you get in through review they do put an asterisk next to your name in the Facebook. That's a little embarrassing.

I have a similar question to some of those above. When seems to be the cut off for when people who received the committee review emails went under review?

If I went UR 12/6 and didn't get an email, am I screwed?

To be fair, Berkeley's office should still be open for another hour so maybe they aren't all out yet. Maybe they finally whittled down people from Oct/Nov to people they want to accept, reject, and hold for faculty review. Who knows?

Just a word of "encouragement" for those who have been under review a while but didn't get the FR email: until you get the ding, you are still in the game. (Not really encouraging I know-- hence the "" above even though I dislike using them that way.) My guess is that Dean Tom tries to level load the two rounds. You may be in reserve to fill that second round depending on the # and quality of late apps.

Bilbo: awesome one about the *. Extremely funny considering how hard the school works to avoid ranking etc.
