My status checker did change to DR already. Not sure about whether they do decisions in waves or not, though.

Fun Fact:
Berkeley saw that I registered for the February LSAT, and decided to put my application on hold until my score comes in.

Now I have to REALLY destroy this retake.

Awesome.

Got it today. Went complete on 6th. GPA> 75 LSAT= 75. Did not expect a decision so early so I screamed when I saw an email sent so early (sent 8:00 PST).

I'm not sure whether it has to do with the decision, but I did my undergrad at the school.

Berk acceptances thus far are geared toward people with crazy numbers/URMS. What's up with that?

Or... they are taking in people they don't care about to hold up the #s. They are foundation. They keep the house together, but they are boring and unseen.

They are waiting to drywall, paint, and furnish the place with all of us interesting people with whom they want to spend time everyday.

Like when you were a kid and you'd eat the green beans first cuz "they're important," but really you're just waiting to smash some macaroni and cheese.

Seems like they're accepting as many 170+ LSATs as they can..the rest of us are going to have to wait a bit longer

Looks like they've finally succumbed to that LSAT pressure. The last bastion of lawl school hope is gone.

Ah, this worries me. Mine went complete around the same time. I'm probably headed to Dingville.

Congrats to you, though!!!

Do not think thats the case. I am a non-URM between 25th and 50th LSAT and above 75th GPA. Got in some time ago. (I did, however, submit early in the cycle—late November).

Hang in there. I'm sure your admit decision is coming soon. :D

Well, I'm in the same boat as you in terms of #'s and timeline....no decision yet though :(

Combining this quote with your profile picture just makes me think you've condemned us to death by Doomsday Device.
