Not to be a dick, but I fail to see how those are related at all. Berkeley is just weird. And I have no clue about your app, having never seen it, but if you weren't outright dinged, it can't be that bad.


People have been sent to faculty review and still gotten into Stanford and Harvard this cycle. Don't worry about it.


Haha awesome... perhaps I will not freak out over it

I still think I'm lying sometimes.

I'll predict some serious blood on here (in the broad sense) tomorrow. Harvard, Berkeley, a few others. It's been so quite across the board today.

I hope your skywriting says, "What, like it's hard? Harvard Class of 2016."



I'm not kidding, but a beauty pageant winning friend of mine seriously wants to tour ASWs with me and whenever I enter into a room she wants to be behind me yelling, VOTE FOR ELLE!!!!!!!! (her idea, not mine, surprisingly). :wink: my blondeness precedes me.

:lol: That's excellent, and now I am (extra) rooting for you to get that JS2!

I had this same conversation with a guy I know who actually gave me a whole talk about how the TTT that he went to is so awesome that he wouldn't even have gone to Harvard if he could go back and change it. Then I told him I got into Harvard. You should have seen the look on his face (none of the smileys here appropriately represent it so I won't even try)

Blah at best, really didn't feel like I added anything they didn't already know except to further emphasize my manic research of Harvard's program and faculty.

Aaaaand the wait to receive a hold commences...

EDIT: Hold or flat-out ding, let's be real.



I felt the same way with my JS1...I rambled and was inarticulate and actually told JS that I loved her at one point and yet still got in, so I think you are likely fine, everyone has nerves and they understand that

As in, "I love you," like you would say to your mom, or, "OMG, I love you," as in, your friend surprised you with a post of Taylor Lautner's ab's on your wall? assuming the latter...

ETA: couldn't post without a pic

I told JS I love Elizabeth Warren, I think that was the key to my acceptance.

Stays complete.

I have a good feeling about tomorrow -- envisioning several JS1s among the tidal wave of dings that is also likely to come.

Does the date change like NU or will there be no warning before a JS1/ding? I'd like to brace myself for what will almost inevitably be the latter.

Wish we knew when they went complete... probably at least a week or two ago.

Hmm... if they got their JS1 yesterday, its not likely they'll have another wave of JS1s until next week, no?

If a bunch of us are still stuck in limbo after tomorrow, a Forgotten thread is going up.

Alternatively, Princeton Law 2016.

I'll be that guy:

All holds and dings tomorrow.

Anyone went complete before 12/15 will have heard something by tomorrow.

Hope I'm wrong.

After being waitlisted at Chicago yesterday, I'm really nervous about what tomorrow may bring.
