It was like 20 degrees warmer 2 weeks ago, so I am still in my fall mindset. We rarely get snow before the new year so no one is quite ready yet. Still too cold for me.


On Saturday, it was 40 and nice. Yesterday and today is full on blizzard conditions. Not amused.

I do, as well. Merit aid offer, perhaps? I know Berkeley isn't typically super generous with merit aid (not talking about the matching grants), but they do give out some, from what I understand...

I got the 12/14 Decision letter mailed as well as my original 12/07 decision letter mailed. That would be absolutely amazing if it was a merit scholly offer.

Please post on TLS when you figure out what it is. I temporarily forwarded my mail to where I am for winter break, so I might not get it that quickly.

Please report if it is a merit aid offer, it would be awesome if it is! I probably won't see it until early next week of course.

I was talking to a 3L the other day who got a merit scholly, he said his offer came about two weeks after he heard he got in, but that he got in late january/early february so he wasn't sure if two weeks out was when everyone heard or if everyone had to wait until february : (

It was sent 12/14, no one in CA got the letter? It could be something else but someone should get it by now?

Yeah you would think someone in California would have it by now, my mail is all going to lovely Los Angeles so I have no idea. That and I was in the second batch of admits so I'm sure my letter is just the stuff you all got the week before. But hope it's merit for you guys!

So you only have 1 letter in your mail section on the checker?

Waiting for stuff is the story of this weekend for me :(

I'm in California, and received the 12/14 decision letter today. There's no second mailing listed on my status checker, though, so that one is a complete mystery.

But here's hoping that we all get super-generous merit aid offers! :wink:

r6 I only have one but I was in the second batch of admits (12/6)... but the mailing day for mine is also 12/14 which makes me think that unfortunately maybe the system lists the mailing as sent to all admits so far or something along those lines? hopefully i'm wrong
