Waitlisted today... very disappointed because it was my top choice from the start and from the email it seems like chances of getting in off the waitlist are pretty slim..... :(

Same, but probably Penn, because Michigan lost my application.

"After reviewing thoroughly your application for admission to UC Berkeley School of Law, the Admissions Committee has decided, with regret, not to offer you a place in the Class of 2014. We wish you all the best in your applications to other law schools and in your career. Thank you very much for your interest in Berkeley Law and for entrusting us with your application. A letter will be e-mailed to you in the next 24 hours."

I'm wondering what they think of me for the Class of 2015...

In all seriousness, I'm a touch disappointed by Berkeley's thinking that I'm not special enough to pass their "holistic" review process. Good on them, though, for not jumping at everyone above both of their 75ths. I can definitely appreciate that.

Congrats to the guys that got in, and sorry for the people who were dinged. I haven't gotten a status checker update, e-mail, or phone call. No clue what this means.

Anyone know the disposition of FR2? Mostly newer admits? Same odds as FR1?

Dinged via email- it's my first rejection and, as Berkeley was my top choice throughout most of the cycle, I am angry! It was a but of a surprise, as i am above their medians. Looks like NYU it is, berkeley's loss :)

Edit: congrats to everyone accepted !
