510 is the east bay. DAMN YOU PHONE WHY DON'T YOU RING?


510 is only part of the East Bay. 925 is the other part. 510 is the part Berkeley's in, though.


To anyone who has been admitted: is 510 where the calls are coming from?

I'm assuming ASO means status checker?

Wheee. Except, what does ASO stand for? Is that the status checker?

Slash, I hope that no call isn't a bad sign...

Eta: oops. Mistermister beat me to it. Sorry for the repeat question!

Soo... should I be checking my ASO every 2 minutes or every 5 minutes? There goes any hope of productivity for today. I wonder if Berkeley can see how ridiculously often I am checking my status right now.

My meta-strategy: refreshing this thread furiously until someone has news.

Exactly what I'm doing. I'm starting to get rather nervous and pessimistic.

I'm going to jump in here... the anticipation is killing me. I didn't think I'd have to feel this way until Friday the 18th, but given how many offers have been made over the last 2 days, I now have to sit on pins and needles both today and tomorrow. Good luck everyone

Two things:
1) What time did Boalt tweet that?
2) I'd be really surprised if anyone gets in today. All decisions are by email today, but he made acceptance calls yesterday.

Just wanted to mention that when I spoke to Dean Tom yesterday he mentioned that files would be coming in throughout the rest of this week, but my happened to come yesterday. That seems to imply that decisions should be made today and tomorrow. Good Luck to everyone!

Also, no status checker update for me.

I feel like everyone in the admissions office/committee are also refreshing this thread frequently, thoroughly enjoying watching everyone trying to figure out their process and when and through what medium we can expect a decision.
