Well, it's good to know that I'm not the only one. Hopefully we'll get something from them soon!

I have to believe its a crapshoot with the app status checkers. I got mine from Berkeley very shortly after submission, but am absent from UMich's status checker email for a week. Others the opposite.

That's how it's starting to seem.. On the bright side of things I guess it's just one less status checker I can check five times a day

Hmmm. I applied on the 24th and I've been under review since the 27th. I don't know if this is good or bad but my numbers aren't great so I really wouldn't think anything of it.

This thread is dead today. I guess all the hoopla with JR1 emails, UMich ASW logins, and strange GULC updates, the attention is off of Boalt.

That's only because for me all Boalt is saying is "We have recieved your application" and nothing else. So Im sad :(

Good luck. When are you visiting Berkeley, again?

I'm visiting around that time, actually. So excited!

If accepted, are you leaning more toward Michigan or Berkeley?

What did you guys do for the resume? On the app it says:

Please provide the following information on a separate attachment or provide a résumé which includes this information:

1. List academic and non-academic honors and awards received, including fellowships, prizes, and memberships in honor societies.
2. List your extracurricular activities since entering undergraduate school, the hours per week devoted to such activities, and the dates of the activities.
3. List your positions of employment since high school (either full- or part-time), the number of hours per week devoted to each position, and the dates of employment.
4. List your care of dependents (children and adults) while in undergraduate, graduate, or professional school, the number of hours per week devoted to dependent care, and the dates of such care.


My resume doesn't include things like hours per week for activities or employment. Should I just try to add that information to my resume or provide a separate attachment? It feels a little silly to have my employment history listed in a resume, on the application itself, AND in an attachment.

I thought this year's application did not request hours per week. Where was that in the instructions for this year? I reread the application instructions on LSAC and did not see anything about hours per week, but I saw that request in last year's application.

It wasn't in the instructions section, it was on the page where you upload your resume.
