Yes, that answers my question. I was curious because I also left my scholarship deadline blank (for the same reason), but then I read the following on Berkeley's website:matching scholarship applications are 'triaged' – meaning that they are reviewed in order of the deadline that the individual must respond to the other law school, not in the order the applications are received.
So that had me a bit concerned. Do you happen to know if your scholarship was from the matching application vs. from the optional scholarship interest form? While I submitted the latter after checking some boxes, I did not write an additional essay (though I did for the matching scholarship). I felt my PS provided all the necessary info. However, I'm beginning to worry that this was a mistake.
Yeah I saw that whole triaged thing and that's why I got in as quick as possible. I didn't want to miss out. I think my scholarship was matching only but in the last paragraph they did mention this:
I am sure you would find Berkeley Law a great fit for your interests and experiences given how interdisciplinary and dynamic they are. We think you would contribute a great deal to the intellectual diversity of the Class of 2014
I'm not sure if that is just the normal script or if they put it in after reading my essays. Hopefully that answers your question. If you need to know anything more specific feel free to PM me.
