She goes to the same small branch state school as me, Midwest. She's a splitter - 170/3.5, hell of a past and personal statement though. I knew she was bound to get in all along. :)

Congrats to today's admits! Can I ask if you've had any movement on your status checker? I keep neurotically refreshing mine, and I'm not sure if it's worth it.

Nope, mine still says:

Current Status: Your file is under review.
Current Status Date: 1/26/2011

And at the top the banner about being in CR.

(and thanks, everyone!!)

I'm guessing 'softsgalore' is pretty accurate then. Wee! Congrats to all :)

I have a feeling we should be happy the status checkers haven't changed. Once they do, all the calls will have been made and the automated stuff will kick into high gear.... THE HORROR THE HORROR

Me too. Partially from the nervousness, partially because I hated Heart of Darkness. :evil:

Congrats to the recent admits.

This is getting rough, I feel like calling the admissions office just to confirm that they have the right phone number and area code for me..."heyy, um just calling to confirm that if you were for some reason planning on calling me today, you had the right phone number for me..."

How about some Browning to soothe the nerves:

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith, "A whole I plann'd,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all nor be afraid!"

3.3/177 non-URM splitter, this was my last application (sent in December on a whim with my standard 1.5 page PS as somewhat of a hail mary) and I'm in total disbelief right now.


Pfffffff... This probably had something to do with your whiteness. Congrats all the same!

This totally makes up for the waitlist from UCLA and U Washington.

BTW, Tan is correct -- 170/3.5 (it's actually a 3.49, so below the magic 3.5 mark). I need to go continue to pinch myself now.

I wonder how they determine the order of the calls.

Why do I have to keep fixing things for you?

I really, really thought they were full of shit about the "holistic" part of their admissions process. I will say nothing bad about them ever again. Holy shit.

Congrats! I'm a 3.5/177 splitter and thought I had no hope because Berkeley likes high GPAs.
