Has anyone been under review much longer than a month without a decision and/or get wait listed or denied?

I was also 11/25. Hoping for this coming week, which, based on the past and even this cycle, is the first realistic time we could hear.

UR on 12/2.

GPA is low for Berkeley (3.6), but according to the school's myLSN graphs it seems like LSAT/GPA aren't as good predictors as they are for other schools. Dean Ed Tom really emphasized that his office looks at applicants holistically at an information session held at my school.

Admitted today! I am in utter disbelief.

UR 11/25--->A 12/11

below 25th GPA/above 75th LSAT/non-URM/out of state/mediocre softs

There is hope for those below 25th GPA.

Didn't receive a phone call or anything, but found out on status checker.
