I'm non-FR and still standing.....been UR since 11/13, and absolutely no action since.

Anyone have any guesses as to what this means? FR2 seems to be the consensus, no?


also stuck at 11/28. I think we are headed to FR2.... do you know when FR2 starts though?



from last year's thread it seems like those who went FR1 got decisions by about 2/18 and several others who hadn't gone FR1 went FR2 soon after, with decisions coming for them around 3/12. are we all assuming another bloodbath likely won't happen between now and the second batch of FR?

I wouldn't worry too much. It seems like they have not done anything since that big wave of admits several weeks back. With your UR date, you might have missed the first batch of admits, but thats NBD

Looks like I've dodged the ding bullet at least for today. Any chances of some 5 PM movement today?

I applied early January and I am so surprised they didn't reject me today. What is going on here.


It was probably because of that enthralling thread you started a few weeks back


I like you. I also dislike this thread.

az21833 wrote:but uva merit offers blow up like april 4th... whats the point of having a matching scholarship if you cant match in time


berkeley will still consider scholarships that have an expiration date before their expected matching scholarship decision date. From a past thread: "Also one important thing I found out is that they don't rule you out for matching if the other offer expires. They take into consideration that you may have other similar offers and that you may have gotten an extension."

but, i see what you're saying. it sucks if you have a scholly offer from UVA, don't get an extension on it and end up not having the chance to compare the two scholly offers. wonder if they'll try to let you know before the other scholly "explodes" if you ask. i've actually e-mailed the admissions office about this, so i'll let everyone know when i hear back.


please do let us know. unfortunately, if boalt does not offer me significant $$$ before April 4th, they will have no chance at me and I suspect many are in a similar boat. shooting themselves in the foot here


so i got a response from berkeley basically telling me that it's too difficult for them to keep track of every other school's scholarship deadline. thus, as i mentioned before, they confirmed that they continue to review your application even if the submitted scholarship has or will expire before they can render a decision.

as for whether they will try to accomodate faster turnarounds in response to other schools' earlier scholarship deadlines, it seems like the answer is a big no (even though they didn't explicitly say this).

having said that, however, it seems like you might be in luck as matching scholarship decisions can come out as early as March.

Unintentional, but the admissions season has been exhausting. One way or another, I'm ready for it to end.

This. I would love to be able to make a choice within a month or two. Doubt it will be able to happen though.
