I don't know what helps this provides. But approximately 190 students came to ASW...

+1. Especially as someone who is already out at HY. Was really hoping for a top-3 acceptance. Maybe it just isn't in the cards.

Yea there was a lot. On the bright side for people itt, literally 9/10 people I talked to had H acceptances as well and were about 50/50 on where they were going.

I'm generally a lurker, but I feel like Berkeley's Admissions Dean is way more of a loose cannon than Ms. Deal. I went to an admissions event and he made some off-color remark about Canadians and then made some half-assed apology to me about it when it came out that I am a Canadian. It wouldn't stop me from attending, but it was kind of a dick move and I doubt he would have felt as comfortable saying something similar about Mexico.

See that, Faye? I'm defending your honor.


WOW, that's pretty surprising

I think I saw somewhere that Berkeley had publicly advertised that they were done with initial decisions, maybe in an email or maybe on their website. I also don't think it's the same situation as Stanford because I'm pretty sure they've given initial decisions to everyone. It's not like the Stanford possibility that everyone left is just WL or rejection.

I agree that it's different. I hope it isn't true either! Maybe the person I talked to will be proved wrong and there will be another admit wave, just seems unlikely.

Yeah, Berkeley sent out an email newsletter in March that explicitly said they were finished filling their class and had released all decisions. If I were ranking the admissions offices/processes, Berkeley would be #1.

But is it as holistic as HYS's? :lol:

Who wants to call and set the record straight this week on when we may be finding out?? Anyone brave enough to ask when the WL is coming out?

Yes, or even better, an admitted student. Doesn't Faye have to indulge most of your neurosis and potentially irritating questions by providing genuine info and a smile? They will still want you to come after all.

That was my experience, and that's why I'm inclined to believe what I was told (that direct admits are nearly, if not entirely, done for the cycle). That said, I hope I misunderstood or am for some other reason misinformed. :/
