Any idea what time the emails/calls for those under FR came out last year on Wednesday? Was it all email? Sorry on my phone at work, it's hard for me to search threads. Thanks in advance if anyone knows.

do you guys think they will deal with FR people before those of us who went UR later (too late to be included in the FR process)?

Similarly, why would those of us UR in November be held until AFTER the FR decisions to be decisioned, without going into FR..

To see if we withdraw before they let us in?

Just got the acceptance call. I'm in shock to say the least. Had completely written them off. I had pretty much made a decision too. This might open it back up even with the hefty cost. Just wow ha.

Note: Was a faculty review person. Was in review since 10/27 with no change

Call.

Me: "Yeah?"
Caller: "Hello, is this TLSP?"
Me: "Yups."
Caller: "This is Dean Tom from--"
Me: "Omgomgomgomgomgomg"

Officially withdrew! Good luck to everyone! I hope that free spot goes to one of you! (Yes, it was a difficult decision and it has made me sad lol).

My prediction: Slow trickle of calls today and tomorrow followed by a massive waitlist/rejection bomb for FR peeps on Friday afternoon.

Edit: this is so obvious I now feel dumb posting it. Bored at work, nothing else to do but share on TLS.

Waitlisted. :(
I'm going to sleep on it but I'll probably withdraw tomorrow or Monday.
UR 11/22 FR 1/26.

Anyone from the 11/22 group that never went to FR hear anything back yet? Still radio silence?

Still silence for me. There's gotta be a reason they've kept us for so long. Maybe we'll be in the next batch of FR?

With all this talk of Berkeley's "holistic" approach, it seems fairly predictable this cycle. If you look at Berk's graph on LSN, you can literally draw a straight line dividing the admits and rejects. There seems to be a fairly clear cutoff. I also see few outliers (ie nobody with a 180 or 175 being rejected).

Just got this update in my status checker :

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

Is this second round FR? What gives

For the record, I submitted 1/9 and went under review 1/19

I just got that too, same submit/UR dates. I think it's FR2...
