Man, I don't understand why they let me in. People with far better numbers than me are being dinged which makes me think they really liked something about me

People getting responses today seem to have submission dates pretty much all over the map - though no january submissions that I saw (cursory glance at the posts I admit). I submitted 12/17, UR 12/20. No updates since, no CR, no ding email (yet), no phone call (would like to use my "yet" here but it's sadly already taken by the "ding email"). Wondering if it's possible they just haven't gotten to me at all yet?

Really I just want to know if I can stop staring fearfully at my computer screen while I obsessively refresh my inbox. arghhhhhh...


I'm in a similar boat here (although I submitted in early November). Good luck!

I just looked through last years thread...feeling pretty nervous :( As a splitter and a semi-late applicant (December), I'm completely expecting a ding.

Does anyone else think it's weird that FR/CR applicants have pretty much the same acceptance rate? You would think filtering out the applications to a second round would mean that there's something they liked about it.

Yeah, it's a bit weird, but remember the CR pool has all the auto-admits taken out, so the leftovers don't have any statistical stars, I guess.

172/3.63, so I'm not surprised.

CLS/NYU here I come!


I'm sorry to hear, but quite frankly, you have amazing choices already. Congrats with CLS!!!


Thanks!

Yeah, that makes it easier to take it in stride. Plus, I knew I'd probably be dinged due to my GPA.

Good luck to everyone who hasn't heard back yet!

last year on 2/18 there were only about 15 admits and over 100 rejections...2 more weeks everyone on CR!

It looks like a lot of this rejections were non CR rejections though...so maybe there is hope to be had yet!

There's plenty of people in CR above both 75ths. Berkeley is just weird.

I'm willing to sign onto this theory. I have pretty middling numbers for Boalt and am in the first batch of CR.

+1. I expected to be dinged today too. We live to fight another week, I guess.

1/10 complete. Median+75th percentile stats. No CR, no acceptance, no ding.
Why do I think this does not bode well for me. :cry:

UR 12/13, no CR, no ding, no call

I like glitched's advice: RING PHONE, RING!

"More phone calls are being made by Dean Tom, and more decisions will be coming out very soon. Good luck to all!"

We can hope that we're in the 15 admissions that happened with the 100 rejections last year :-) But, if not, at least we're hanging on.

Went under review as of 1/10....nothing has changed since then. Probably checked the status website 200+ times in the past 3 weeks. Has anyone who applied in early January had any movement yet?
