Are the people being accepted the same people that were placed in CR1? If so, has anyone been denied from CR1 yet. I wonder if that's what happens to those of us that don't receive acceptances today.

HS -> BPMVD with the best offer and fit. Only V and M has offered merit money so far, so everything still in the air. Need-based aid will also matter. So I don't know, and I am trying to distract myself from waiting by going to all the forums.

My guess is that we spiral deeper and deeper into panic and despair tomorrow, and try to survive through Friday if necessary...

I'm happy for the people who are getting calls. But I wish they'd send all the bad emails today too. This is just mean! Give it to me Berkeley. I'm ready for it.


I even visited you last weekend....And although I love you...I can't wait anymore!!! Just tell me!

Seems like everyone that's in today are traditional splitters. Any reverse splitter love?

Also:

Didn't get a call last year, got an email. So you might not get called.

It will probably be a steady flow over the next two days.

Old and alum here who has given nothing back either (yet). Didn't stop the dean from showing me some love.

Good luck! Go Double Bears!

I don't know why I am sitting here waiting for a sign of life. Were I to be accepted, it wouldn't be until the last possible day and it would go something like, "Congratulations, you're in. Now shut the door behind you because you are the last one to get in."
