176/3.83, honestly thought Berkeley was a stretch and hadn't paid much attention, but now I'm definitely interested and can't wait to visit. Went under review on 12/5.


Congratulations~~~ At what time was the email sent?


Thanks, couldn't check my email till the end of the day, but it was sent at 930 am western time. I think I got the admit partly cause I expressed interest in entertainment/music business law which they place really well in. Noticed we have similar numbers on LSN, not gonna lie, pretty jealous of that NYU acceptance. Good luck on your admissions.


I'll trade my NYU acceptance for your Berkeley acceptance any day.

That would be amazing. Create an ebay style marketplace where people bid for your acceptance with their offers.

Example:
Listing: Harvard, Sticker
Bids: UVA, Full Ride (Reserve not met)
U Chicago, 20k/yr (Reserve not met)
Columbia, 15k/yr (Offer stands)
Stanford, Sticker (SOLD!)

I'll take the Harvard, please. I can throw in NYU, an iPad, and the firstborn of my children, just to sweeten the pot a bit.

Yes. This. Genius.

On an unrelated note, I've been "Under review" since fricking 11/21. Should I just quit dreaming and accept this as a polite rejection?

too early in the cycle to tell, although admittedly, your chances are getting slimmer by the week given kappycaft1's post regarding LSN admittances thus far. i'd probably give it until the end of january (for all T-14 law schools actually sans HYS) before you start getting worried. Even if you go under committee review, you should be getting an email within the next month or so.

No, no... You cray because I will give you a Harvard/Yale for a Stanford (this is clearly mythical for 99.99999999% of us)

Edit: And I will take a 3rd Gen iPad... Thanks!

Berkeley has the highest ranked ip program in the country, which music/entertainment biz law is a subset of. I forgot where I read this, but Berkeley places incredibly well in intellectual property jobs, especially on the west coast over other schools similarly ranked.

True, but it still stands that Berkeley is better for this type of law (entertainment/music) than other similarly ranked schools, like UPenn, UVA, Mich...etc which is what I originally stated. This is especially true for LA, look it up.

This isnt what you said though. You said Berkeley places "really well" in entertainment law. What is your basis for this? Besides your whole-to-part fallacy, program speciality rankings are known to be worthless because they are based on assessments by faculty members not employers.

I agree Berkeley probably does better than east coast schools, just because they have a stronger foothold in LA. But entertainment law seems like such a difficult field to get into I am skeptical that any non-HYS school places "well" there.

I meant "places well" in a relative way, as in they place well compared to other schools. As far as entertainment law goes, it is a very tough field to get into, and yes HS, along with possibly Columbia, are likely somewhat better, but from what I've heard California schools like Berkeley do better in this field than other similarly ranked schools. I am basing this off of conversations I've had with several prominent attorneys in this field who practice in LA and NY along with some cursory internet research, but maybe they have a skewed outlook on this topic.

I am not arguing that it is easy to get an entertainment law job out of Berkeley, just that it is easier than some of the schools I listed above which are generally seen as peers. This whole argument spun off my attempt to understand why I was admitted, as numbers don't usually do the trick for Berkeley, and of course I could be completely wrong as to why I was admitted.

CP you seem a little on edge as of late. I'm sending you good vibes for whatever school you are stressing about.
