Same. Thinking about withdrawing. Berk is really low on my list and it will probably be better to make room for people that really want it.

I might do the same since I'm pretty set on NYU.

If you don't really want Berkeley, please withdraw. It is my #1 realistic choice. Plus, it sounds like you already have a strong interest in NYU, which is ranked higher. Not to mention, Berkeley doesn't award money like UVA, so it's not really much of a bargaining chip for schools ranked above it.

Ditto. I'm at a 168/3.72 (waiting for my updated transcript to bump up my gpa marginally...grr!!!) and was expecting a ding but hey! I'll take it.

Faculty review via status checker. When are these decisions finalized?

Does your status say "faculty review"?

Man, all of my status checkers are vague as hell. They've just said "Application Complete" or "Your file is under review" for two and a half months now.

This is what I am thinking too since people with the same stats and same initial review date as me have gone under faculty review and I haven't. Ahh well...
