Weird. My status checker says 11/14 but I got the UR email on 11/22. Either way I haven't heard anything...


Same here. What does this mean??

Hopefully that the Berkeley admissions are looking at our applications and deciding to let us in

I'm not excluding the possibility of a Saturday filled with acceptance phone calls but probably won't hear anything over the weekend. I'm fine with being proven wrong by someone!

I've seen it before but could have been a troll. Though people got acceptances from other schools on a Sat so you never know but I wouldn't bet on it.

Just a couple of people. I was UR 11/22 and I heard back on 12/01. But it seems like the bulk of the 11/22 hasn't received a decision yet.

I’m sorry. I definitely didn’t read any of my application materials after I submitted, though, because I didn’t want this to happen to me.

with your stats, I would take a dump inside a fax machine and send it as a PS.

Don't worry! People get in all the time with typos and other little mistakes in their personal statement. It's not a big deal. There's a good chance that no one at Berkeley will even notice it, and even if they would, they probably wouldn't care.

How serious is this grammatical error? If we're talking about, like, a dangling modifier, you can forget about it. If it's something huge and glaring ("Me loves Berkley") it might be possible to give the admissions office a call and ask them to replace your PS with an updated one - but it would have to be really, really egregious to warrant that.

tl;dr - don't sweat it.

TITCR... I found a typo in Berkeley's view book for crying out loud. I've received dozens of emails from schools with massive errors. This stuff happens.

Thanks everyone. I feel better now. The sentence is not wrong, per se. However it makes me look a bit more aggressive than what I would like. We shall see what happens.
