I think the hours on the resume is really just a way to try and qualify what you mean when you list volunteer work. 2 people can list something like volunteering at a homeless shelter on their resume, but while the first person may be volunteering there for a couple hours once a week, the other might have listed their mandatory service requirement once a quarter for their job/school.

So, with that in mind, I don't think it's a big deal not to have listed the hours (as others have mentioned, as well as those who were admitted without mentioning it), but I personally would at least be ready to answer the question. Hopefully you didn't list any thing that would fall into the category of the latter situation.

Cool, thanks. I didn't, I just didn't have an easy way to incorporate hrs/week on my resume (and they definitely varied quite a bit for most of my jobs and extracurriculars).

I guess I should stop procrastinating and get that app in...

My status just says, we received your application, with a date of 27 Oct 2011. Anyone else who submitted around that time, or more recently, have something different?

I submitted on the same date and my status hasn't changed either.

About a week and a half ago I got the notice a bunch of people received saying my app is under review. The email included a link to the status checker and said "you may check your status here," however I never received a user ID and temporary password, like I did with all the other schools. Was this an oversight, or have other people had this experience?

Either way, it's most likely not something I would bother the admissions office about because I don't want to be annoying..

Click on the link they gave you and read

If you have not received an email containing your login and password
Please be patient. We send these in regular batches as new applications are received. You can expect to receive an email containing the information you need to check your application status online within approximately one to two weeks after submitting your application.

We also suggest that you check your bulk mail folder as our emails sometimes get directed into bulk, spam, or junk mail folders. If you believe that you should already have received an email with your login and password based on when you submitted your application, or if your email address has changed since you submitted your application, please contact us at admissions@law.berkeley.edu.

Are you sure about that? I'm 99% sure the first batch of "under review" was 10/27.

Finally went complete today after submitting about 2 weeks ago. With all of the excitement about status movement/decisions from other schools, I feel like I have forgotten about the good ole Berks.

Wooooo complete! Submitted earlier this week. I was expecting a much longer wait given other people's experience.
