based off of the trend so far, i believe so. But you never know! If they do send out any more this week, it probably would not be until later friday

Does Berkeley wait for all LSAT scores before they start completing/reviewing the application? I have an LSAT score but I also wrote in December. My status has been "We have received your application" since early November.

So... :?:

Looks like there could be decisions today or tomorrow, but Wednesday will be the norm?

Thanks! I actually don't recall seeing my app status ever change from complete to under review. The phone call caught me by surprise.

As a 172/3.5 URM, I bet they didn't have to look long at your file to accept you. Good luck this cycle!

Haven't submitted app yet, but I was told my "Low LSAT Explanation" essay would not be appreciated by any adcomm except possibly the Berkeley adcomm, and I wanted to see what you guys thought. Here is my essay:


If, at a perfectly round table, with eight seats evenly spaced around the table and eight specified persons to be seated at each of the seats, one of those persons – say, John – refuses to sit next to Henrietta, Ian, Kit or Lucy, except on alternate Tuesdays and only if Lucy wears gloves, perhaps, instead of indulging John by trying to figure out every possible permutation by which his seating preferences can be satisfied, our time could be better spent trying to help John address his intimacy and communication issues and possible OCD.

I mean, we are forced to play "games" based on John's laundry list of requirements, when this man is clearly crying out for help!

I could not be a party to these games and so respectfully refused to answer.

Humbly submitted,
I remain,
Yours truly,
