I submitted 2/3 and I'm still under review. I think the fastest I recall was 2.5 weeks to hear back?

Hopefully will hear by next week, if not the end of this week. Thanks!

Think they're still out to lunch and the dings will resume shortly, or has the storm passed? (Condolences to those who got bad news today...I have no idea why some people were rejected looking at the numbers :( )

Looks like the storm has probably passed for the day. If we're lucky there will be some admits later this week, otherwise the rest of us are probably FR2. (Or... more dings.)

Sorry to all of our fallen brethren.

For now, I think! (Meaning this exact second. :lol: )But then again, are we ever really safe until we get an acceptance?

Seems like it may be it for today... But I expect more dings tomorrow! I am looking for the nearest rock to hide behind!

Appreciated! :D

But I am going to practice willful ignorance and assume they're only now updating it after just getting around to checking their email/seeing the ding from the earlier wave...yes, that is how I will cope!

that's probably the case. if they're reporting accurately, though, this does mean they've started looking at post-1/21 UR files, though. so i am cautiously relieved to have survived the day.

unfortunately, i anticipate more dings tomorrow. :(

And remember, a number of people change their dates my a few days/weeks for anonymity

What makes you say that? Has that been a pattern with dings in the past for Berkeley?

+1

I'm just going to crawl back under the bed and pretend I didn't apply to law school this year...

Sorry to all who were dinged in the last few days! Good luck to those of us still hanging on.

no, just in a glass half-empty kind of mood. sorry, haha. and, even if the lsn person isn't fudging their dates, the majority of dings was in the 1/21 and earlier crowd, so...

Man, I took a couple of weeks off from this thread, and I am disheartened to see the quality of the dings upon returning. No offense to anyone in this position, but I don't mind seeing a 172 K-JD ding; those folks have lots of other options, and lots of time left. When I see people with good WE, good GPAs, graduate experience, and the like getting rejected, though - damn. Berk really is a black box.

Fair enough lol. I'm definitely pessimistic on my chances after seeing the numbers/info of people dinged today. If there's another wave tomorrow, I'm pretty sure I'll be one of them.

So they're doing admits and denies each day now huh? Not just admits on one day and denies on the other?

I think they're still split by day, no one reported any admits for today at least.

So admits tomorrow? I'm still sitting at 1/21/14... not sure if this is a good or bad sign.

Alright everyone. Break out the horoscopes, incenses, and whatever else you can think of and let's all start praying and wishing tonight for a good admit day for all of us tomorrow!

I believe our LOCI should be sufficiently demonstrated by our obsession here at TLS!
