Does this mean once a week? I live literally next to the law school and this wait is stressful. My UR date is 11/8. Anyone else?

So if they're sending out "weekly" emails, then we would expect one most likely today or tomorrow, right?

Based on the two admitted people that have filled out the spreadsheet so far, we were both admitted on a Tuesday. So maybe tomorrow?

Had a dream last night that I got into Berkeley.
Rarely has waking up been more sad.

Got the call about an hour and a half ago while I was on a mountain in the bay area! They were really nice on the phone :D I'm in!!

Went UR 11/4, PM for stats or more details. Submitted early Oct (had a June score) but waited on October retake. Tailored PS to Berkeley. Wrote DS!

Good luck everyone! It was definitely good news! I also did ask them when they were on the phone if the office is open tomorrow since they called me near what would presumably be closing time today - and it is! So fingers crossed for more calls to TLSers before Thanksgiving Break :)

Probably a little late for me now, but how did you attach a DS to the app?

I attached mine under the same header as my personal statement as 2 separate attachments. Then viewed the pdf to make sure it accompanied my app.

This just in: Me!! No why Berk, but numbers are above both medians. I am feeling elated. Congratulations to the other admits. I hope to see you in the Bay, in the City, and in the Town!

Do you think it's too late to send a DS if you already submitted your app with a two-page PS?

UR 10/15... is this a bad sign that I haven't heard anything? My GPA is probably too low for Berkeley anyway
