Weird, I didn't get mine. You'd figure they'd send it in one batch wouldn't you? oh well.

Nvm, I just hadn't checked my email in the past 20 minutes. I got it too :D.

Hmm, they mentioned "We will help defray your airfare cost to attend." Even though they didn't mention it on the phone call. Guess this means i'm flying :wink:?

Got the same email today, even though I never received a phone call. Maybe my phone was off?

Got the email today as well. Yayness. It's my first acceptance.

Didn't get a phone call. But I love the exclamation point on the "Accepted!" status update. It makes up for their lack of phone call enthusiasm :)

Congrats everyone!

Does anybody know if anyone has received a rejection letter yet? Or when Berkeley usually sends out the ding mails?

Been under review since early October.

Judging by:

It looks like rejections won't start rolling through until the 1st week in January.

I wonder why this is. Do they like to just sit on your application and stop you from making decisions in anticipation for their decision? It seems quite a few schools hold off on rejections until later.

For serious. I get the feeling there's going to be some mad TLSer meetups/bacchanalia at the ASWs in Spring :D Sorta like wedding crashers, only much nerdier.




Edit: more nerdy -> nerdier. Classic. :roll:

Maybe they are waiting to compare to the new pool of applications after the Dec. LSAT?

Maybe they are waiting for your file to get through committee review?

:) Boalt is pretty well known for actually having a holistic app review. Keep the faith, you never know!

What does Dec3 mean? Is that December 3rd? If so, why is that date significant enough to distinguish on the axis?


I believe it goes by weeks. So Dec3 means "3rd week of December." I can see how that would be a little confusing.

Woooooow, I just realized this when you said it. The entire time I thought those numbers were referring to specific dates. And I'm going to eventually be a lawyer. Wow.

Congrats! The exclamation point was my favorite thing, too, topping the phone call. I really liked the letter today, though. General good feelings all around
