No it's sweltering in NYC during the summer, and it's not hot at all in SF/the bay. To quote Mark Twain:

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco

Berkeley is nowhere near as cold as San Francisco. It breaks into the 90s in the summer. SF is not Berkeley, think Oakland if you need a reference.

I think there were only one or two days maximum that it got into the 90's, but yeah, it's nice and warm here whenever the sun comes out, which is almost all the time except for late Nov through January.

I stand corrected. But yes, still nowhere near the east coast humidity + heat

Around 2 weeks for me


I received my admit email on Dec. 17th. I was gone for 2 weeks for holiday break; I was hoping when I returned I would have received the actual letter, but it still hasn't arrived. I will wait until Friday before I call the admissions office and see what's going on with my packet. Hopefully, the office is open.

I got the admit email on the same date, and got my packet almost immediately after. Definitely call.

I just noticed that my mailings section went blank. Does this mean anything or am I going crazy?

That's how I felt but I'm almost certain I at least had a mailing update for when I went under review.

Hey LexLeon,
Speaking of colons, is yours ever sore after you take big dicks up your ass? Do you think you're better than me because I made a grammatical error on an online forum? Or maybe because your LSAT score is higher than mine? Big deal bro, smoke a J and calm the fuck down.

Your homophobic outburst doesn't exactly reflect the culture of acceptance at Berkeley. Are you sure about your desire to attend there...?

However, his stance on J smoking should help him fit right in. :mrgreen:
