I would say all hope is not lost. But no news is bad news at this point.

Lets just say that if you were waiting to put a deposit down on an apartment for UVA until you heard back from Berk, it wouldn't be a bad time to go ahead and put down that deposit.

Is the conventional wisdom here that, if I received an email stating a decision would be made "on or around March 8," that those calls would actually be going out today, and therefore....if the phone hasn't rang....SOL?

I got my call around 2:45. I live in the Bay Area.

EDIT: The FR1 notification day was "on or around February 15" and I got my call on February 14.

The first FR notification I received from Berk was on 2/14. I just assumed it was fr1 given that that was the first communication I'd received.

Don't give up hope, people. During FR1 there were acceptances on the date stated in the email as well as the week(s) prior...

Have any of the accepted students status checkers been updated?

Does anyone know whether there are date limitations for getting the $300 travel reimbursement for ASW? Such as, I may decide to fly to the Bay Area from Wed-Sun, in order to show boyfriend more of the area, make more of a trip out of it, etc etc.

Basically, as long as I do in fact attend ASW, should there be any issue with being reimbursed for a flight that spans a longer period of time than strictly ASW? Thanks.

Sorry, the rest of us are busy sobbing in our pillows as our hopes and dreams turn to dust. You're probably better off asking in the admitted students section.

Sorry, didn't know there were rejections today. My Berkeley process wrapped awhile ago so I haven't kept myself in the loop.

Berkeley, I really do have a weird thing for you, even if you're all the way over there on that other coast. Why you no love me back?

The calm before the storm....

Looks like decisions started rolling out for FR1 around 9:30am.

Yep, an hour or so left til they rip the bandaid off. It's kind of nice that we had a day to digest it before officially getting the news. I'm ok with it now, just a little annoyed they left me on the hook through 2 rounds of FR
