So, explain it to me like I'm five. If you've been in review for a while, do you want committee review, or no? Obviously, you want straight up acceptance. Basically, I have a better shot at hitting ten consecutive home runs in Yankee Stadium while blackout drunk than getting into Berkeley with my numbers, but oh well.

There are three piles of applications: Yes, No, and Maybe.

The Yes pile has been admitted already.
The Maybe pile goes on to faculty review.
The No pile will hear shortly.

WL will eventually be the maybes of the Maybe pile.


aaaaaaand I'll be dinged shortly. enjoy the application fee.

AA, Non Traditional. 170/3.92.

I did have a C&F addendum, but I'd imagine that the dean of admissions makes a decision on that issue by its self. Hmmmmmm.


WTH... Do they not know who you are? Send in a LOCI mentioning that JS thought you good enough

When'd you apply? If you've been in since late November or so and didn't receive the email just now, then expect a ding soon. (Unless your softs are out of this world of course).

If you submitted later then maybe you are still in the preliminary phase.

UR 12/7. I suppose that's enough time to realize that my application is nothing but a sad joke. :( But, I got into schools that are good enough for me to attend. It could be worse!

Gee, somebody should probably tell the people who are still submitting apps. :roll:

Hoping Berkeley hides some big time YP with this whole Faculty Review thing. Big time numbers I'm competing with here.

Berkeley has a round of FR2, right? How does that work? The "maybe" ones who applied later in the cycle and the "maybe-maybe" ones left from FR1 will go to FR2?

so is the consensus that early Jan completes stuck at UR are getting dinged in this wave? in other words, should I be bracing myself?

Doubt it. There are plenty of us stuck at way earlier dates.

I think the maybe-maybe ones from FR1 are waitlisted and those who get FR2 are maybes who applied later in the cycle.
