UR 1/25 as well...at least it was quick. This was the last app I submitted and the first one I hear from so it makes it harder to stand the silence from the rest of the schools I applied to.


Yeah man. I was there for a long time after Duke held me and no other school would give me the time of day. For literally 4 weeks or so it was total silence and then I got two acceptances before this ding so it's prob not as hard on me. Don't worry your acceptances are coming!

I know.I'll see how the cycle plays out but I'm prepared to reapply next cycle if I must. Thanks for the encouragement. Best of luck to you.

Sorry to hear about the dings! The LSN graph looks horrible :shock: Good luck with the rest of your applications!

If I recall correctly, when I submitted my supplemental app, they indicated that the first batch should go out in the first week of March. Pretty standard.

Anyone know how soon before the 'deadline' for notifying FR1 folks (I think that was 2/15?) the lucky ones started getting admit calls? I'm FR2 and we were told we'll find out on or around March 8th... Just uselessly trying to predict when FR2s might start getting calls...

FWIW and according to this thread, FR1 people got acceptances as early as Feb. 8th (a week before the deadline of 2/15). However, in that same Texas1990 post, it said most people were going to hear back the week of the deadline. After researching, I discovered that was indeed the case. GL!

Read before asking in every thread. Search tool.

ETA: My use of the search tool confirms you have asked this already.

I find this question to be particularly cruel and aspie in the middle of a bloodbath. Give it a day.

Or use the search function.

My bad, say the thread getting bumptity bumped up and up and saw people complaining about dings at the top so assumed it was all today. You're right, that was Friday. Using the search function is still a great call IMO.

Btw wasn't criticizing you twinkle because I know how bad you want Berk so the question is very pertinent for you.

no worries :wink: I know we've called a truce. really, though, I should link boalt to my LSN/TLS profile and they can see how committed I am to attending. I know Berk says on their site that finaid decisions will start rolling out in early March, but I still think we won't hear til the end of March personally. Who knows.

Should I just expect a ding? Berkeley was one of my top choices, but haven't heard anything. UR 1/7 and never got FR. 169 3.9x non-URM. Wrote a Why Berk also.

Don't mean to be cruel but probably. For the most part Berk seems to look for higher numbers if non-URM. How bad you want Berk doesn't seem to matter to them.

No problem. Thanks for the info. Kind of realized that myself, but just wondering why they haven't told me already.

They left me hanging for almost half a year before giving me the D.

Berk's gonna Berk.

I don't think that's true. A 169/3.9 puts you in a solidly green/yellow zone on the LSN graph. Congrats on the high GPA. I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be a good fit for Berkeley, and you're not rejected until you're rejected. Good luck.
