I really need to stop going on TLS. I don't want to do anything for fear of missing the call (cause Cal is too cool for message machines I guess) -- I can't live like this for three more months.

And they say this is the easiest wait of law school...

you go complete before UR. do you mean how long until you get a decision?

I'm trying to convince myself that so I don't obsess about my phone for the rest of the day. It's rough not having a single acceptance yet :/

I have been under review since 10/25.

I am starting to think I have been rejected/waitlisted but they don't want to break the news close to holidays. :/

Got a call 9am this morning. It was completely unexpected; obviously more than ecstatic. They aren't joking about the holistic review of applications. Submitted 9/24 Complete 10/24. No Update on Status Checker even after call.

Is Berkeley notorious for YP? I was looking at the LSN and looks like a complete bloodbath. I think only Yale's might be worst!

Not so much YP for either of those. Yale is, well, Yale. And Berkeley LOVES high GPAs while not caring as much about LSAT.

afaik they do not YP at all. They are just very "holistic," along with being GPA whores
