SO MUCH JOY. Call from Dean 10min ago.

He didn't say anything about merit-aid, does that mean I'm SOL (besides matching?).


CONGRATULATIONS! That's wonderful! Mind sharing your dates/numbers?

I haven't heard much at all about merit aid yet, but I'd suggest submitting info re: matching.


+1 on the congrats. Also dates and status is basically mandatory at this point with so many people waiting in agony. Otherwise saying "In, gimme dat money!" is just self-congratulatory and does not help the community at all.


Sorry, my roommates were congratulating me, but my stats are in my profile (172, 3.7). I applied in the middle of November, and went under faculty review in the beginning of January.

The Dean specifically told me I came out of faculty review early (I wonder what that means from a processing standpoint?), and that people world hear next week on the 15th. I doubt I am the only person that he is going to call today (even though I am a special snowflake), so I hope you all get good news, too!

:( Yeah I should have. I guess I was just upset that there's still no movement for the forgotten ones. Anyway, congrats to all the new admit!

This is a serious "T-14 Problem": I'm really upset that I got an email instead of a call when I was admitted.

Yeah, that's terrible. You should withdraw.

SpatulasRCool should withdraw, too. No mention of merit $$? WTF??? Withdraw.

Man this is off-putting... and by "this" I mean you, not the admissions office.

Yeah agreed, for people still waiting, these comments are not particularly helpful.

Ya, wtf? I thought this was a forum where people asked questions. Clearly my curiosity reveals what an entitled douchebag I am. It's not like anyone but a dick is concerned about how to pay for this stuff.

You're right. It is a forum to ask questions, and it's a fair question. The question actually didn't bother me, but describing yourself as being "SOL" in the same post where you said you had been admitted bothered me. I apologize for the backlash, however. Congratulations on your acceptance.

Congrats!

We are pretty much numbers twins (0.01 point difference in our GPAs). I remember you from the USC thread where you were offered $90k and I was offered $75k. ;_;

As for Berkeley, I was never assigned to faculty review though so I fear they're saving me for the ding pile.

Therefore, all of us forgotten must now hope for FR2, or else... (Shudders again)
