Seriously, even putting University of California as the header. Worst trolling of the cycle, even worse than the Northwestern Thanksgiving message.

Let's not forget the Berkeley financial aid e-mail either.

This was probably already answered, but is there a way to tell if you are specifically under faculty review? Is the status different?

Nothing tells you that you made faculty review. You stay as "complete" for as long as they feel like torturing you. I was complete going on 3 months and just got the email, so I'm guessing they are starting to release their faculty review decisions. Just keep your ear to the ground!

I did and saw conflicting answers. Just like on this page (e.g. the previous two posts)

Ultimately an educated hunch based on how they seem to do admissions. Dean Tom even said he has his initial presumptive admits that get a quick glance and then the rest enter faculty review. I can't be sure of this and it is entirely conjecture, but with my numbers (slightly above LSAT, way below GPA median), it only seems to make sense.

No. You were not admitted via the committe review process. You would've received an email if you had been put under committee review. This is how it has been done for past cycles.

Give it a week or so and you'll see people posting on here that they've received an email notifying them that they've gone under committee review.

Just checked my email to make sure, but I guess I stand corrected. Unbelievable.

I shouldn't complain... but the financial aid email from Berkeley right after the admit email is just mean. Started seeing dollar signs until I realized it was just spam.

How pissed would people be ITT if they found out Matthewsean was URM or an Olympic medalist or something?

Anyway I refuse to have any hope. My hope is dead. Gimme my ding.
