3.7 / 171 replyless? Holy dear motherlord.


I only have 1 and I applied in Sept.

I only had one until today (Now I have three mind you) and I applied sept too. They will come, don't get too worried just yet.

this might be a stupid-naive question, but did anyone miss a call from a berkeley number (that belonged to dean tom in 1999, according to google haha, and may still be his number)?

i have a missed call from a little before 7 and clearly can't call now, but i'm like... not an auto-admit... at all... and i'm half-sure this is a mistake. to add to my confusion/terror/excitement, i don't have any voicemails. i'm going to call at noon est, but that seems VERY far away.

basically: did dean tom (or the lady calling on his behalf) leave voicemails for anyone?

That's what I usually tell myself, but today my lack-of-sleep-ness got to me. Now I wonder if I will dream about worrying tonight.

I feel like I have a great chance with Berkeley. If I don't get a call soon I am actually going to start worrying for real. :(

I doubt it's any consolation, but I WAS thinking the same thing. Hopefully we will both be proved right tomorrow.

I am no expert but I would be surprised if you didn't hear this week. Your numbers look tailor-made for Boalt (I know it's more than numbers but i'm betting you're an all-around good guy as well :) )

Congrats to those admitted!

It's 2 weeks pre-finals and our study group was just talking about how just one short year ago we were in your shoes. Sending you positive thoughts - good luck everyone!

Is there any kind of picture emerging about the kind of numbers that are getting accepted? I got in with a 25-GPA and >75 LSAT, which makes me seem like an unlikely candidate for Boalt. I'm trying to figure out whether they're doing things differently this year or if I can infer good things about the rest of my application.

Looks like all the people today were high LSAT folks.

Above median GPA (slightly) and above 75th LSAT I think

Call them tomorrow? I missed a call around 3:30 from an unknown number and I called it back.

I was able to log-in with my Calnet ID (I went to undergrad there so I already have one).

Congratulations to all of you!! I really hope the rest of us get calls soon too, I wouldn't have to obsessively check this site anymore haha.

That fits me, except I have at 75th LSAT. As I read from last year, most pre-thanksgiving folks had 171+ or >75th. So maybe I am getting my hopes up too early.

I guess after submitting in Sept. I am just getting impatient :P since a lot of you are getting good news.

I am? You sure that's me? lol I think my LSAT is just 1 point shy of the threshold... same goes for H at this point. I have very long WE in the field of law I want to pursue, I am sure I have a great shot at getting in, I just don't know if I would this early. I guess going through decision withdraw pretty bad :mrgreen: All my other targets are mid-late December at best.

Almost makes me want to use some of those fee waivers ...

My GPA is above 75, LSAT just below. Submitted and Complete on 11/1... I'm hoping to hear this week, but it might be a bit premature.
