Unfortunately, the LSN numbers from last year tempered my slight hope that my UR from mid-January would turn into a good thing. Based on the 2012-2013 data on LSN, another wave of rejections came out Thurs/Friday (2/27-2/28). O well.

It appears that all the applicants placed in each FR batch are notified on the same day, at least that's how it was for FR1. Thus, today (2/21) seems to be FR2 Day. We'll have to wait for next week to be sure, though.


Wait what? This seems a bit confusing. If we never had FR, wouldn't 2/21 be FR1 for those applicants? Which would mean, it does depend on the applicant.

FR1 and FR2 refers to the wave itself, not in regards to the applicant. The second wave (2/21) is termed FR2 for chronological purposes; this is my first FR, but it's still called FR2.

Side note: I don't think you can even undergo a second faculty review for your application, so it makes sense that they're numbered based on the order in which they come in.


This is tremendously helpful and now I totally understand haha thanks!

If you're still UR and missed both FR1 and FR2 I wouldn't give up hope. Going back to last year's thread, there was at least two posters who reported that they missed both FR1 and FR2 and got accepted straight from UR later in March. What I'm guessing is that the adcomm is waiting to see how many people decline their acceptances and admit people from the UR list afterwards.

There was another wave of rejections this week according to the LSN data from last year.

Does this mean there might even be a FR3?

Yeah... the first time I got that, my heart briefly stopped, until I read: "This is an announcement to all applicants regarding the application process for financial aid." (Yup, they boldfaced "all applicants", lest people get too excited.)

I just hope they don't start calling us on the phone, "Hi! This is So-And-So from the Berkeley Law Admissions Office. I just wanted to remind you about the FAFSA deadlines."

Nor did I. But I also already submitted my FAFSA. Did you? Perhaps they only sent it to folks who haven't already..? Just guessing here.

I already submitted my FAFSA and Need Access form about a month ago. This email had a link to a specific CAL need based form. I wouldn't worry too much about it since the email states that those who are admitted after the March 2 deadline will be granted extensions.

I submitted mine already too. I got the supplement reminder from way back when, but not this recent one. *gulp* I'm hoping that means I'm not denied..

Does anyone know if Berkeley needs Need Access? Their financial aid page seems to request filling out only FAFSA and their own supplementary forum.

No, Berkeley doesn't require Need Access.
