It's pretty cool to see admits for people I see on TLS all the time.
As for me, I am currently afraid of my own shadow and every phantom phone vibration (indicating a new email).

If anyone needs me, I'll be under my desk rocking back and forth in the fetal position and mumbling Asimov's Laws of Robotics, waiting for my phone to next it's next move.

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!!)


Mine just updated to " A decision has been reached" W/O a call.
Sad face. :cry:

:( Sorry.

Looks like the worst part is starting. I wish it were March 11 now, though, so I could know.

Also just realized I will be on Spring Break at the beach when I find out. :shock:

Woah. I just checked my status checker due to all the status checker dings, but mine said this:

Current Status: A decision has been reached
Current Status Date: 2/17/2011
Decision Status: Admitted!
Decision Status Date: 2/17/2011

I guess that's pretty clear. Woohoo! Anyone else have this?


I'm sorry for all who didn't get in today :(

Ding. If it says decision made, the decision will be in the text at the top of the page.

Whilst this might not be the ding bar, I'm pretty darn fucked off with how this is all turning out for me.
At least a waitlist. Come on.

Anyway, congratulations to those who got in!
Hope you decide to take them up on their offer.

...and here comes the email itself. Best part: "If Berkeley Law remains your first choice you may wish to consider applying to transfer at the end of your first year at another ABA-approved law school. Transfer applicants are evaluated primarily on their first-year performance, and we offer advanced standing admission to 40-45 students annually from an applicant pool of approximately 250-300 candidates." Fck you so hard, Berkeley. This is just retribution for Stanford winning Big Game this year.
