Good luck fellow applicants!


Beautiful. I can see hoards of TLS posters showing up at the admissions office dressed like Spartans and since it's Berkeley, it probably wouldn't even phase anyone

Stats are 172, 3.8.

Good luck to everyone else waiting to hear back!


Out of curiosity, did your status checker change at all before receiving the call? Or did it only change afterwards?


Mine still says "under review" but I got the call last week. I think they're just slow? Let's hope we don't need to find out if verbal agreements are binding in the state of California...

I got admitted via email as well!

Totally unexpected. Made my day! (and perhaps my week!!)

I cannot wait to travel to San Francisco to visit the school.

I got a call from Dean Tom 11/20 and just received the official email! I guess this means I wasn't dreaming...

When did people who are hearing back submit/go under review, etc.?

Congratulations to the new admits! Enjoy the excitement for getting into an incredible community.

I was wondering, and perhaps somebody could help me figure.. In what ways is an URM's application seen differently than a non-URM's one?

Wish they would hurry up and accept all the 170+s already so us lesser folk can start hearing back too :).

Congrats!

Admitted via email today. I never got a phone call, so I was starting to get worried. Needless to say, feeling MUCH better now.

Congrats everyone! Nothing on my end yet, but I know it's unpredictable so I'll wait awhile before freaking out.

Yea. think we just have to be patient. seems like the people getting in thus far have been 170+ and/or URMs.

Thanks for this reassurance. Here's to hoping they release another batch today.

I don't think analyzing high numbers or URM status helps much with Berkeley. They take pride in their holistic approach to applications.

Non-URM with a 164. I don't think analyzing high numbers or URM status helps much with Berkeley. They take pride in their holistic approach to applications.


you're a non-traditional applicant?

We're basically number twins and you got in. Now I don't have to give up hope!

In today via email. Especially satisfying after being rejected last admissions cycle. Submitted 11/14.

Any idea if Berk scholarship stuff comes in the admission packet? I know schollys are rare there, but just wondering when to expect it
