I was hoping for today. Last year it was the Monday of Thanksgiving week. I'm not sure when exactly during the day though... Also, do they call us, or email, or status checker?

Based on last year's thread, it's calls. With the early Thanksgiving though I'm not expecting any calls until next Monday.

Last year's tweet announcing phone calls was sent at 5:20 pm Est, so could happen late afternoon. Nervous.

My friend texted me to say she had a missed call from Dean of Admissions at Berkeley. I told her its a good sign, is it safe to tell her she got in???

Since no one else has gotten a call, I wouldn't get her hope up like that. If this board starts exploding with acceptances then she's almost certainly in :)

How long after submit did you Day 1 guys go complete? I submitted 11/5 and am still just "received" with a status date as 11/5, too.

Nothing new on their Twitter either. I was really hoping for today.

It's probably not "safe" to tell her that, but I can't think of another reason the Dean would be calling. I'd suspect if there was an issue with her app someone else would be calling to rectify it. Anyone can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I sure wish I missed a call from Dean Tom today. :)

Berkeley updated its Twitter page 2 hours ago:
Berkeley Law ‏@BoaltAdmissions
Admissions will close at 2:00 pm on November 21. Happy Thanksgiving! Back to business on November 26.

Think it means something? Perhaps we'll hear before then? :)

I'm reading that as a "no calls till after thanksgiving." also skeptical about this friend's missed call... Possible trolling?

I think you guys are probably right. I guess I'm just a little too optimistic...

Yeah I was surprised I thought we'd get some before Thanksgiving. Also I'm sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but why on earth do they close down offices for so long just for Thanksgiving in the US? (I am Canadian and we only have a 3 days weekend for Thanksgiving)

It's hard to have a 3-day weekend given that Thanksgiving is on Thursday.

I submitted on 11/1 but my application is still just "received." I did ask them to hold my app until my second rec arrived (11/9) but I'm not sure why it is taking them this long to put my app under review :s

I agree that we likely won't hear anything until next week, but every time I receive a call from an unknown or unsaved number I can't help but hope that its Berkeley.

I'm totally on edge now, not even for myself! If my friend was not actually admitted, then I am the worst friend in the world for getting her hopes up. :(

Mine is also still received from when I submitted it on the 11th.

SHE's IN!! My friend called back this morning!!

Under review in mid October (or last week of Oct?) LSAT 165 / GPA 3.9 from Ivy with really good softs..

She said Dean Tom said the online login info wasn't ready to give out yet (for admitted students) and that admissions packets weren't ready to be mailed but will go out after Thanksgiving but before Christmas holidays.

Stay close to your phones today :) :) :)

edit: fyi she missed a call yesterday from them, called them back this morning
