Guess I'll never know.
Any ties to California? Did you tailor your PS to Berkeley? I feel like Berkeley wants to know why you specifically like them. They're touchy-feely like that. Their admissions process is largely a big question mark (*holistic*), but evidence certainly suggests that numbers don't even come close to being predictive of results. I doubt you were YP'd based on your numbers. If anything, they might've found you unlikely to attend for other reasons. Based on your unwillingness to tolerate faculty review whatsoever, I'd say they were right.
You're already having an awesome cycle, I bet you get some serious T6 money. Come on, you didn't want Berkeley anyway.
You're right, I just didnt like being called entitled. I'm not entitled to be free from being called entitled, but I am entitled to feel some displeasure at being called such.
I'll stay neutral but when you're in a thread where people are dying to even get FR and you start saying how you are incredulous at the fact that they would FR you I mean....you can't expect people to take too kindly to that...
ETA: I know it was probably unintentional. These are just testy times, and people mince words when they're anxious.
