One day I think, but it looks like last year at this time a lot more acceptances had been made, and most of the decisions to come were rejections.

Indeed. Yesterday was a bloodbath that would make Danny Trejo proud and today not a peep.

I think they're waiting for their application pool to completely close. February 4th, next monday (since feb 1st is tomorrow), is going to be the bloodbath i think

Indeed. Monday will be the beginning of the storm, what with the deadline having passed and all....

Ok.. so, I'll wait for my ding also. At least you can move on.. there is an upside to rejections :).

sorry to hear that :(
can I ask what "/superior" means? GPA above the median or something?

It's a designation for students with non-U.S. degrees. Instead of a GPA they have average/above average/superior etc. I would peg a superior at a 3.8 or above.

Last night I sent an LOCI as a reply to my faculty review e-mail. Did anyone else send an LOCI? If so, did you receive any indication that they received it?

I sent one and did not receive a response. I don't even know if they'll look at it, but I figured I would have to write something egregious for it to hurt my app.

Also sent one a while back and never received a response. Just the automated one saying that they were closed for winter break.

Are you sure they check that email address/is it the normal admissions@... address?

UR 12/7, no FR. Instead of Kurt Vonnegut's "ting-a-ling" I'm waiting for the ding-a-ling.

It was Dean Tom's email address. Do you think I should resend it to the general address?

I sent an update just as the FR email went out. I received a reply saying they had added it to my file.

I sent a copy to the admissions email account asking them to add it to my file. I received an email within a couple hours on a Saturday evening with one word "Done."

Kudos to the admissions staff!

I'm gearing up for the "on or around February 15 decision." What's the consensus here on how selective faculty review will be this year? What about the likelihood of getting in off the WL?

At first glance it seems it will be a lot easier to get in with apps down as they are.

Anyone know if Berkeley's apps are up or down this year? NYTimes article said that ONLY 4 schools had an application numbers increase. One of those schools is Duke. Have not been able to find the name of the other 3.
