First rejection. Good luck to everyone else.

ETA: above both 75ths and FR.

Hmm..you think UR people have a chance at straight out admit? I'm hoping Berkeley takes me in as one of those "Oh he's pretty unique so hey let's take him despite being a reverse splitter!"

It seems like Berk does waves of admits then waves of WL/Dings. If the UR list sees action tomorrow I bet it will be admits. However, I tend to prepare for the worst.

Does anyone know when FR2 notifications are expected to go out? I've been UR since 12/16 and missed FR1, I'm guessing I'm a fringe applicant and would be lucky to even get to FR2

It would make sense, considering Weds used to be the big AR admit day. Cautiously hopeful over here.

Sorry to those who got bad news today. :(

Also curious about this.

Reverse splitter sounds so much better than fringe candidate or, my favorite, double under-dog.

WL'd today, was faculty review since 1/23. Honestly kind of surprised I wasn't dinged. I'll probably withdraw--good luck to everyone who's still waiting!!

I'm UR 1/21. Applied mid January. I was rejected straight from UR last year. For those asking about UR auto admits: my understanding from reading the crap out of threads here in TLS is that if you applied late in the cycle and are UR right now you can expect acceptance, rejection or FR2. No waitlists without being FR first.
From what I remember, admits and dings for those in UR came very soon after the rejections and waitlists from FR1...so anytime.
Nothing much changed in my app since last year except for 5 months of campaign work. I did move to NorCal and worked for an environmentalist group so maybe they'll think I'm liberal enough now. Haha!
