Previously under review since around 12/6, no faculty review. Really a pleasant surprise, I definitely thought a ding or FR2 was coming, but apparently there is still hope for people who have been waiting!



Congratulations!

When did the email come?


1pm eastern


Crazy.

Congrats!

Numbers?

first post? either a troll or congrats, and I'm a pessimist


Haha, not surprised to cause suspicion, but I'm truly just a long-time lurker (note my join date.) Not entirely sure why this pushed me over the edge into posting, I think mostly surprise that no one else had reported an acceptance today.

If you can get LSN to function, I'm on there under the same name and have been maintaining my profile for the past few months :)


Fine, I accept you. Hahha congrats!! Someone must have seen your app and been like, how the hell did we not admit you the first time we saw you?

Just withdrew acceptance (hopefully for a deserving waitlist-er) :D Went to Cal for undergrad and loved it. Solid liberal vibe and the law library is very very nice. I just think I'm overall better situated at one of it's peers. For those accepted and expect to matriculate, if you guys have any questions on housing or want some suggestions, PM me. Good luck everybody

Clearly not a good enough school to mention the difference between "its" and "it's"

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I had to transfer away from Cal after a year, and I am bitter.

Currently under FR and had a question about sending an update

Recently accepted a tfa offer (bay area. Idk if that'd have any effect). Gpa updated to a 3.7 (from 3.66). Also took the lsat this weekend. Berkeley should know about the last two automatically, right? Should I update them with the tfa now or just wait for the decision (I'd most likely defer if I got in)? Thanks for any help/suggestions.

Can someone help me out, the last e-mail I received from Berkeley was in December telling me that my application was processed and under review. However, my "current status date" is still listed as 12/05/12. Is it worth contacting them about? Any one else having this delay?

You will probably go into Faculty Review Round 2.

Yes Lulz.

But also do not worry about it. This delay is very common and they have not forgotten about you.

Great, thanks for the help. Gotta love all the resources at TLS.

Wish y'all the best with the rest of this process.

Each day that goes by my hope dies a little bit and my hatred for all those who are getting in off faculty review grows....

I missed a call today from Berkeley, but no email/status checker yet. There's no possibility this is lightning-round admissions, where if you miss the call you're out of luck, right?

I don't have an answer for you, though the thought is terrifying.

My inclination would be to celebrate.

They're really going to stick to that "decision on or around February 15" thing down to the day, aren't they?
