Mine says, "Your file is complete."

Maybe yours has already been submitted for review!
Either that or saying that you are under review is what other schools call "processing."

If so that is sweet. I think most schools do it that way; I was just surprised to already be complete and under review so quickly at Berk. I hope you're right!

Yah, it looks like mid-november or december from last year's graph.

I really hope I get in! I just found out about a professor who teaches there who has my EXACT. SAME. research interest/passion. I'm more interested in Berkeley because of that, but I wish I had realized he taught there before I finished my essay. Could have written about his work! eep.

I just got the UR email as well. I really hope we all hear back soon. A Boalt admissions officer is actually coming to my school's law school fair on Friday to urge people to apply. I'm gonna be like, "It's in already, and it's under review... do you recognize my name from the file?!"
Luckily, my thesis is due in two weeks, so I have a limited amount of time I can actually spend on TLS. I think that is actually a good thing for my sanity :) Good luck to you all!

On part 5 of the app:

6. Have you been admitted to an undergraduate program or taken courses at UC Berkeley (including summer session and UC Extension)?


I got in for undergrad but didn't end up attending. So I would have to say yes... does it affect admissions decisions?
