Let's go FR I guess. Really hoping I can make this. Berkeley's group of applicant's comes second to only Mich. IMO and I'd really like to be in class with some of the people I've seen in this thread. Grats to new acceptees.


I agree, except for me cuz I'm obviously an a-hole.

I think around 1,000 go into faculty review and about 200 are accepted



I believe it's 1400-1600 that go into faculty review, or at least that's what Dean Tom said in his TLS interview. Not sure when this interview took place though and if the recent drop in applicants has changed anything.

Best of luck to everyone and fantastic thread! :)

EDIT: **Congrats to all the acceptances!**

I'm JK, someone sent me a PM calling me that over a minor disagreement that took place over the weekend that I can't even remember what it was about and I think it's pretty funny.

Been UR since 11/22.

Not as bad as everyone else but no news is good news for now as my GPA is so low it's not even funny.

I'm wondering the same thing!
I'm leaning towards softs, since the #s are all across the map.
