Yup, I just got FR2, too; was UR since 1/21.

Anyone know when the Faculty Committee might meet? I'm assuming they already went through the vast majority of applications (deadline was Feb 1) and could theoretically meet next week to discuss everyone.

We should be getting an email with the date to expect a decision by fairly soon.

ETA: Literally just got the email. March 14th. Three more weeks, folks.

Thanks, doctorpepper!

EDIT: Just got the e-mail: "The Committee will begin deliberation on your application on February 21. We anticipate a final decision will be reached on or around March 14."

No work is getting done until you tell me what's going on, Berkeley - come on FR2 notification, or even better, a straight admit!

Got the email about FR as well. I'm terrified.

Edit: What's the difference between FR1 and FR2? Is it just the first/second round?

Edit 2: UR 2/10.

Hmm I guess this means ppl who don't get in on the FR2 list are either straight dings or admits.

Or WL.

FR2s have a more fine line, I believe.

Well, at least there's movement/a firm date for it. But damn, March 14th will be nerve-wracking.

No one goes to WL straight from UR.

I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but anyone UR at this point is probably getting dinged.

So FR is small amount of admits and the rest waitlist, or can you still get a straight ding?

There hasn't been a recorded post of someone getting WL off of UR. At least that's what I think the poster is referring to as evidence.

You can get Admit, Ding, or WL once you are in FR.

Oh, I wanted to know why that poster thinks that "anyone UR at this point is probably getting dinged".

Perhaps those still UR were in the pile competing for FR2 and would not have been included in the wave of dings this week. As a result, perhaps we missed out on further consideration. I hope not, but the odds are pretty discouraging at this point late in the cycle, especially with all the recent movement.
