I believe there's no indication on your status checker that you're about to get a call. I think most people have reported their status checker taking a day or so to switch over to Admitted from UR

Lol I'm on a video conference, so I'm stuck til this meeting gets over...I'm just hoping I don't actually have reception in this room and that's why there hasn't been a call

oh my god!!!! i got in!!! i literally can't believe it. i kept on crying when dean tom was trying to explain to me information.

165/3.75
i was really beginning to lose faith and i was ready to quit my job and retake the lsat. I've been really struggling with this test and i had put my all into it so I just wanted to apply and see what would happen.

i think my personal statement and diversity statement were strong (details a bit too personal to share but PM me if curious) and i think berkeley is truly one of those schools that looks at apps more holistically.

lots of volunteer and work experience. non urm. good luck to everyone else. believe in yourself!!

Just got the call from Dean Tom, too! So excited! Thought I was toast after not getting a call earlier in the week! Stats in profile, non-urm.

Eeek! Google / old TLS threads tell me that my missed call was from Dean Tom!!! :shock: Will he call back?! I feel awkward calling and saying "hi I missed a call from this number..."

p.s. I am FR2

Even if it's awkward, it can't hurt your chances now, right? :wink:

I saw my missed call after the end of the business day... the Wednesday before Thanksgiving break. Now THAT was a longgggggg weekend, haha.

I was FR1 and that's why I did. Dean Tom made a witty quip about him just calling to wish me a happy Valentine's Day :D

Coincidentally i just flew home for the weekend. I'm with my ENTIRE family right now, at lunch, at a restaurant coincidentally called Mr. Lucky's. please god let dean Tom call me right now. If for no other reason than the dramatic flair.

are hopes dwindling for the rest of us fr2-ers? are calls typically made in the morning?
