Thanks!! Appreciate it! Fingers crossed for you too.

Sorry for not posting decisions to my profile as I hear. I've got the lurking adcom paranoia, but when I hear back from everywhere, I'll definitely post everything.

Crap. We are pretty much numbers twins except you have the engineering major and more WE than me. Berkeley will love you more than they love me for sure!

Decisions usually come out starting around 1:30 Pacific Time. Man, Eastern Time is seriously the worst. The best is watching election results on the West Coast. Last time I wasn't even finished voting yet in SF and they had called tons of results already.


I finally figured your avatar out! I'm not a CA resident, obviously. 8)

My heart hurts.. I wanted B so bad..missing the first and primary round of phone calls hurts me to the soul... I even emailed Dean Tom yesterday just to emphasize my desire to attend. Total hail Mary, but at this point I have.NOTHING.to lose

Who feels my pain? I mean, GULC makes me happy, and that its free with my external scholarships even more so,but if I only crack them for t14,
I may walk away from LS

Aw EMZE - Georgetown for free is amazing! Don't walk away if law is really what you want to do. I know this process sucks but that option is pretty amazing. You are t14 secure. That in itself is an achievement.

I feel the same type of disappointment that you do when I think about the fact that it is highly likely I will not get into any other law schools than the ones I have already. I'm open to going anywhere, really. I have to keep reminding myself that I'm in one of my top choice schools so life ain't all bad.

Yeah man. I agree! Granted Georgetown isn't the coolest law school ever BUT you can go there for free. It's an opportunity you definitely should not give up!!!! :)

Got the call from Dean Tom 40 minutes ago! Berkeley was my dream. :-) Just when I completely gave up hope and was like, "Ok God, I should stop be so unappreciative....Thanks for getting me so far. Penn and UVA aren't THAT bad" I got a phone call 10 minutes later. Hopefully those of you who really want Berkeley get it too :). California here I come!!!!
