Sorry, don't feel comfortable about posting stats on here.

In all honesty, I was just as surprised to receive the call as you. Like, literally surfing the web and then my phone rings w/ some random number showing up. Surprised? Yes, because it IS a Saturday evening. Skeptical? Not remotely.

And honestly, I have ZERO reason to come on here and lie.

The reason I call bullshit is this: you feel comfortable posting that the dean personally called you and at what time he did so but you don't feel comfortable posting your numbers? Like that's gonna give away the ballgame? Wouldn't the dean remember who he personally called so haven't you already outed yourself?

The section of the forum is called "acceptances, denials, and waitlists" not "share your numbers". TLS has been a GREAT resource for me but not once have I shared any component of my application (GPA, LSAT, PS) because I never did feel comfortable sharing that much detailed information about myself over a forum...and I still don't, so sue me. Dean Tom is known to make personal acceptance calls. I got a call. I'm not going to argue with anyone about me getting in; if people think it's BS I can't control that.

I would be suspicious that a "friend" had called me and was pulling a prank. If you are for real, then I would call the admissions office to confirm that you are indeed in at Berkeley.

1). No one on LSN has reported any response from Berkeley.

3). Phone call on Saturday evening?

This needs further substantiation for me to believe Berkeley is releasing decisions.


1). No one on LSN has reported any response from Berkeley. - LSN is not Berkeley
2). No one else on TLS has reported any response from Berkeley. - TLS is not Berkeley
3). Phone call on Saturday evening? - Dean Tom can use his phone whenever he wants

Here's to a great start to my cycle :) Good luck to everyone else as well!!



No wonder you were admitted to Berkeley, u so observant!

But, yeah, I don't believe you.

Maybe OP is trolling, maybe not, but saying that OP is the only "one" is stupid. Not every Berkeley applicant is on TLS. Many people at my school have never heard of TLS. Same goes for LSN. There are 300-400 applicants for many top schools on LSN right now. How many do you think have actually applied?
And C3, absolutely.

Yes. Your comment was shitty independent of OP's trolling.

Meh, most Boalties do find jobs. But, I found your comment more sarcastic than serious, so I wasn't too offended. I just thought you were trying to be funny.




Also, would this person be the star of the application pile? So fantastic as to receive a phone call from Dean Tom's home?

Honestly, I really have no reason to add those other than the fact that I simply didn't have "titles" in college...

Also, the last time I held a true paying job was four years ago, when I was still in hs. I mostly interned and volunteered all throughout college. Should I put that work experience on my resume just to show that I've at least held one job? I mean, I was a hostess at an Italian restaurant so it wasn't anything spectacular. What do you guys think?

Omg!!!! Dean Tom called me at 10 PM from his house and after we had phone sex for 8 hours straight he finally told me that I got in!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with this poster? If you're gonna make up that you got in at least do so with a more plausible story. Don't be the girl openly talking about having accomplished practically nothing and with an LSDAS GPA that isn't that impressive with Berkeley's statistics.... On top of that no law school is going to call people at 10 PM on a Saturday night.

There's dozens of people who are anxious about hopefully hearing from Berkeley this upcoming week. Instead of plotting how to mess with people on a Saturday night why don't you go actually hang out with friends....?
