I think I may have a red flag on my application somewhere. I also have a rather interesting (in my biased opinion) life story, but that doesn't seem to be helping much, if at all.

Well, I'd expect a rejection for me personally. I think others who have not gone under review may still get acceptances.


Like dan said though, why not for some of us with not as stellar numbers? I am URM but my GPA is far below 25% and my LSAT is only above Median (170) and other URMs with my stats, better or worst have either already gotten in or rejected. I'm pretty sure I don't have any red flags on my app AFAIK, so if I have already gotten rejected with you, they must just be taking forever to release them or something.

Your application at UC Berkeley Law School has passed an initial administrative review and has been selected for further consideration by the Faculty Admissions Committee.

It still says "Under review" as of 10/19 though.


Mine still just says UR 12/12, nothing about Faculty Admissions Committee.

Mine still says under review 12/12. Should I be expecting a ding soon? I've heard that not many 12/12ers have received decisions yet, but maybe that'd changed.

This is just as bad as the Michigan e-mail... anyone ballsy enough to call and ask what the implications are for those who didn't get the e-mail, yet went UR early

There tends to be 1400-1600 people who go to faculty review and about 200 are accepted

I submitted on 12/15, UR on 12/22, and FR today, 1/26. Don't stress about it though! This application process is so stressful and trying to read into this UR, FR stuff is just going to increase your stress level. Go read a book. Like Game of Thrones, but don't get too attached to the characters.

I thought the 200 was the number that matriculate.

I believe it's 700-750 students are accepted overall. 500ish of which come from normal decision, 200ish from faculty review.

(from what I understand) Dean Tom accepts 400-500 people through initial-Dean review. 1200-1400 go to the committee, 200 come out
