Grats! Were you FR?


FR1 on 1/23/13


It's official. Panic can ensue now.

Any FR1 rejections or waitlists yet?

2:15 call from Dean Tom but like a dumbass I missed it. I was helping a kid with a drawing. Five months waiting for that call and I miss it!

Also, sorry...

172/3.6

Non-URM

Now for the FR people, do you get a sense that they are admitting applicants with less-stella numbers but probably strong softs/great applications? I'm the exact opposite, good numbers with weak softs and no tailored application (no why berkeley, 2-page standard ps). I'm feeling good about my chance in FR.


I have seen numbers across the board. I personally know someone who got in off FR1 with a 165 3.8ish and very unique softs.

Worth submitting a Why Berk, LOCI, or targeted LOR now that I got thrown to FR?

I submitted a LOCI with a targeted Why Berk theme but have yet to see if it helped.

Hmm. The sentence at the top of the status checker just changed from FR2 back to "Thank you for applying to Berkeley Law. Please check your online status regularly..." and my status is now "complete" instead of "under review".
