No, don't give up hope! Berkeley holds a lot of apps for a faculty review in February(?) so there's definitely no reason to give up hope yet!

Though why they're not admitting you now if your numbers are both about the 75th is beyond me. Maybe they're just playing hard to get.

Berkeley actually admits the 3rd smallest percentage of applicants after Yale and Stanford. It looks like they really do take a holistic view of applicants, and it is difficult to predict decisions from Berkeley more than almost any other school.

EDIT: I'm not trying to discourage you though. With your strong numbers, if you expressed a genuine interest in Berkeley, I'd think you have a really strong chance of getting in.

Do you think sending in a why Berkeley a while after you have sent in your application is a good or bad idea?

Are you confident in at least wl from your numbers? I would say just send in a letter of continued interest if you get waitlisted...?

no one can be confident in at least a WL from berkeley :(. they really do live up to their holistic promise I've found LSNs that swept HYS and didn't get berk.

Really? Interesting... I guess their predictor numbers are a big spazzy now that I think about it. Should I consider Berkeley over NYU? Those are the only schools I've been accepted to so far

On LSP I'm a strong consider at Berkeley...but as scoobs said numbers dont mean much and Berkeley is known not to waitlist that many people.

Obligatory "don't use LSP" post.

Same here, except I submitted on Saturday. I got the status checker email at 9 a.m. today and went under review two hours later. I'm hoping that's a good sign (or maybe they just put me on the fast track to rejection, heh).

Submitted late December, Under Review Today! I guess a lot of people who submitted in the last couple of weeks all just went UR today!!

Hope it doesn't have anything do with stats cuz I am a reverse splitter.. What about you guys? What are your stats?
