Yep. Just a couple hours ago. I forgot the lady's name. She worked in admissions I believe. I'm sure I could look it up and find it. I was kind of in a frazzle: I had missed the first phone call earlier this morning and then called back and left a message.

The phone rang a couple minutes later and when I saw the Berkeley area code I ran to the sink to spit out the thanksgiving buckeye (chocolate sweet) I had just swallowed. Pretty amusing incident. We talked for five minutes or so and like I said it was a fantastic conversation.

When do the phone calls stop? Will they eventually be replaced with e-mails, or simply status checker updates?

I called and simply asked if they would be open.


This made me lol out loud. Bless you, guys.

Congratulations to those who got in today! I guess the rest of us are in it for the long haul.

for those of you who received phone calls today, is your status also updated to "admitted" or does it still say "under review"?

I don't post often, but with thanksgiving tomorrow I think it's appropriate. Thank you all for sharing your experiences -- it's been incredibly comforting and helpful. Sincerely wishing you all the best of luck and hoping we all end up at our top choices!

Happy thanksgiving! Although I know we'll all be anxiously waiting for monday to come so we can start hoping to hear from schools again :)

+1. Tt would have been too easy to hear from Berkeley this early anyway, given my numbers. *Grabs a seat and some hot chocolate*

Yeah! Actually that's how I found out I was in. I haven't checked any status checkers yet so I figured I'd make the rounds out of the schools I applied to. When I went on to Berkeley's website and saw I was "Admitted" I thought that was awesome but then wondered why they hadn't call. The call came a couple of hours later though.

Thanks for letting me know -- guess that means I won't be hearing from Berkeley for a while. Congratulations on your acceptance though! :)

No worries mate! I wish the best for you and I wouldn't lose hope yet! Who knows what admission committees are thinking. I say just live your life and wish for the best!

Hey I applied around 11/10th and my application went under review since 11/15 on status checker (though I got the UCR email on 11/17).
I RDed.

Does anyone have a slightest idea how long it will take for them to reach a decision or some sort?

I just wanted to say, all of the applicants in here are so nice and have such positive attitudes, it's pretty awesome :)

And looking at LSN last year, there might be a lot of acceptances going out mid december. Hopefully we all hear then :) And congrats to everyone who got in already!

With a 165 and (I presume) a really high GPA, we're pretty much in the same boat. Good luck to us! :)

mine changed to admitted! (with the exclamation mark, kinda cute) a little before midnight 11/23. i spoke to dean tom around 1 or 2 pm 11/23 too. so the status change doesn't necessarily precede the call! (or vice versa, w/e)
