UR 12/7. No FR. No status changes, still says "Your file is under review"

Hopefully more FR2 updates are coming...

is there some sort of consensus that FR1s that don't hear today are dinged?

Berkeley: come at me bro.

They did a big wave of rejections recently, I don't get why they wouldn't have just given all the non FR people who have been complete forever the ax. I think it's kind of cruel to make people wait half a year for a rejection.

Oh well.

I just had to go to a meeting in a room with no reception for 45 minutes. I am in agony wondering whether or not I missed a call!!!

Just got the call and wanted to post to give hope for those who submitted in October and have been waiting as anxiously as me! Submitted 10/15, UR 10/26, FR1 1/23. 167/3.87, Non-URM. Hang in there everyone! Good news may be coming soon for you!

Well, the acceptance calls for FR1s have to end at some point soon. So the longer you wait the less likely it is that you'll get the call. That's about all the speculation we can make with any accuracy at this point, though most here will say the calling will end today or maybe (maybe) tomorrow.

Did you tailor your app for Berk in any meaningful way? 4 page PS? Why Berk?

Haha, just went FR as of ten minutes ago. Dunno what happened with this one, but good to see movement! Submitted on 11/8 and been sitting complete at 11/21.

EDIT: Do I need to send a LOCI or anything?

No :( I guess this is it. Ding me already....how long would I have to wait to get the rejection? Without FR2 there's no hope. At least that's what I understood.

Someone remind me of the scary percentage of apps that get in off FR? I know I read it somewhere. And is that a "stat" Berkeley gave at some point or just wild speculation?

Don't lose hope. Who knows you may get in with normal review!

There's an interview with Dean Tom that cites out of 1400-1600 applicants in FR they admit roughly 200.

I think, according to an interview with Dean Tom its like 1 in 8 get in off faculty review.

And FR1... Well i think this may be the end of the road for us...

Thanks for the encouragement. I'll try to go celebrate Vday without having to think about law school apps and the perennial silence...

Is their overall acceptance rate much higher? 1 in 8 doesn't sound too bad I think. Unless I guess some people don't make it to FR. Sorry, not too familiar with Berkeley's admissions process but was curious.
