I'm 11/22, so obviously not as bad, I just thought they'd be doing committee review by now.

Two years ago they started committee reviews 1/29 and reached decisions February 18th. Hopefully it'll just be one more month of waiting at most...

I;m an 11/22 and wondering if this is the route I am headed for... tough to say at this point with so little information

I read that the admit statistics for those in committee review were quite dismal last year.

It would still feel like progress to me. I'm just hoping they're not going to make people wait and ding them without committee review.

So, does Berkeley not give out Merit aid? I didn't see any info on LSN. Later in the cycle?

They do, and it's typically much later if I remember correctly

It's definitely later in the cycle. There's also an additional optional essay you can submit for merit aid consideration, but I think Berkeley takes into account your admissions application components as well.

Yes, merit aid indeed available later. You can submit the optional scholarship interest essay via the admitted students' website.

tl;dr

Has Berkeley let out a big wave of acceptances yet?

Gauging from last year's application forum I think people who are going to the first round of faculty review will probably hear something next week. There will also be some more acceptances and rejections outside of the first review. Then the committee will announce decisions around the 3rd week of February (by the 17th this year). It's not anything certain but at least most of us will have a decision (whether good or bad) within a month. :)

Can you guys explain faculty committee review? Do they let you know that you're going to committee or is it pretty much expected for those who have been under review for a long time?

UR at Berkeley today 1/19. How long have most people been UR before finding a decision?

I really like Berkeley. Good luck with your application cycle! It would be great if I get to know the outcome in a few weeks ..

In the past they have appeared to bring applicants UR in large batches, so all applications received between the last UR date and today probably went under today, whether they sent in their apps 2 weeks ago or 2 hours ago. This is just a hypothesis, but it makes sense given the patterns of UR dates I've seen on this thread in the past...

This has been my experience as well. Don't be nervous, and good luck! :)
