Median GPA, LSAT> 75th


Faculty review?


Naw, they held my application after they saw I was retaking the LSAT. I would have been FR, though, probably.

Dinged. Was a double underdog, so it was a long shot. Good luck to everyone else! :)

Ding!

Not surprised at all, and really not that heartbroken. I was a complete long shot. At this point, I'm just happy that the waiting is coming to an end!

I went from complete to straight rejected. But I was a reach with 163 3.4 OOS URM.

Yeah, I'd love it to be this week, but I think we'll be waiting until next.

They're probably going to make us FRs wait until Friday, too!

I'd actually completely forgotten about this until just now. Doesn't mean I don't love you though, Berk!

I'm actually optimistic for an admit wave on Wednesday and then dings/WLs around Friday. We'll see, though - it would mean a slightly faster turnaround than people saw in FR1.

In that case, I will try to refrain from checking this thread and my Berkeley status checker on Wednesday and Thursday. That way, if I'm dinged and your optimistic timeline is correct, I can still enjoy a couple more days of hope that acceptances go out on Friday and WL/dings next week =)

I'm sure you'll get in though! I'd just want to know by Friday if I got WLed/rejected, since my final exams start next week and I don't want to be distracted by bad news.
