Me too. Maybe it's because I am a reaaplicant? I have gotten into some other decent schools so I don't believe my app is flawed, maybe Berkeley just wasn't looking for another white male

You're a horrible person. In the midst of a ding/WL wave, lets talk about scholarships for people who got accepted.

FYI, from WL email: WLers are notified of their quartile ranking on the WL in late March. Berkeley starts pulling from the WL in mid-June and will continue until 1 week before term begins in August. They state they don't know how much, if at all, they'll pull from the WL.

No it wasn't.

"But you can totally try to transfer in next year LOL"

Yeah, thanks for the offer, but I'll pass.

Blegh, WL off FR1.

Don't most other law schools expect a reply by April or something? At least before June, right? So does Berk expect us to gamble on them, or is there something I'm missing?

Thanks much!

Finally got the ding I was asking for months ago. Why drag it out? Lame. And it's nice to know that they hope I will be accepted to other law schools. Oh well, couldn't say I didn't see it coming.

Good luck to those still waiting!

You be the judge:

After reviewing thoroughly your application for admission to UC Berkeley School of Law, the Admissions Committee has decided, with regret, not to offer you a place in the Class of 2016.

Our decision was not easy. The majority of our applicants are well-qualified to pursue the study of law, and indeed many of them are qualified to pursue that study at Berkeley. But with more than twenty applicants competing for each place in the class, our choices must be highly selective. Although our review process is thorough, it is also human, fallible, and in part subjective.



You are to be congratulated on your accomplishments, and I hope that you will be admitted at other law schools. If Berkeley Law remains your first choice you may wish to consider applying to transfer at the end of your first year at another ABA-approved law school. Transfer applicants are evaluated primarily on their first-year performance, and we offer advanced standing admission to 40-45 students annually from an applicant pool of approximately 250-300 candidates.



I am sorry that this letter must convey disappointing news. We wish you all the best in your applications to other law schools and in your career. Thank you very much for your interest in Berkeley Law and for entrusting us with your application.

It's not a matter of Berkeley wanting us to gamble on them. It's just that, because they don't require a deposit from their admitted students, they can't start pulling people off the waitlist until June.

At this time they'll know about how many they can take, because admitted students will have withdrawn already, having paid their deposits at other schools. Last year they also had a policy requiring admitted students to give them a binding commitment if they accept the merit scholarship Boalt awards them. If you look at last year's thread, there were a lot of people pissed that they didn't or hardly got anything, so a lot of people withdrew.

FYI, Last year someone got in off the second quartile in (apparently) the first wave of WL acceptances
