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


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


Congrats! You've been waiting for this for awhile, no? Great news!

waitlist. my total dream school, so I'll wait it out until the morning of orientation. I'm a huge numeric reach, so I'm grateful it's not a complete ding.

Sorry about that.
do you mind sharing what ur status checker says?


Banner at the top: "After reviewing thoroughly your application for admission to UC Berkeley School of Law, the Admissions Committee has decided, with regret, not to offer you a place in the Class of 2014. We wish you all the best in your applications to other law schools and in your career. Thank you very much for your interest in Berkeley Law and for entrusting us with your application. A letter will be e-mailed to you in the next 24 hours."


Thanks for the message.
Just saw the same thing.
First ding is pretty bitter.

Dinged. Above 75th percentiles for both GPA and LSAT... I'm a little surprised. Maybe my personal statement rubbed someone the wrong way. Oh well. Now to double-down on sending positive vibes to Stanford...

Are all the dings and accepts from CR1? Or are there any that went straight from UR to a decision?

None of us in the NOT CR thread have heard anything today.

At least y'all CR's know where you stand!

Lolll

That's why this kind of sucks. It really makes me believe my cycle is officially over without 3 of my decisions.
