175+ / 4.0X

Maybe it's because I didn't tailor my app towards Berkeley at all, but more likely it's because of my completely unimpressive softs. Oh well.


Wow, I have a hard time believing that.


Well. That's scary.

11/20 applied => 1/24 complete. :lol: Just over two months of verifying for completion.

Every cycle there are people who sweep HYS (or at least get in to one or two of HYS) but get waitlisted or rejected at Berkeley. To B's credit, they do appear to have a relatively holistic admissions process (more so than other schools, anyway).

And sorry about the bad news, AmericanBeauty :(

Dear Berkeley,

Sorry things didn't work out between us. I thought it would have been a cool chance to get to know California better. To be fair, we weren't a very compatible couple, and I understand why you wanted to turn me down.

P.S. Go Stanford/ UCLA/USC!

UR as of 1/6, so should get a decision soon.

173/3.6, so my hopes are not high. I'm not interested in Berkeley at all (short of $$$), but it would be nice to get my cycle off to a nice start.

URM 158 3.63. Interested in Public Interest. Made it to FR. What are the odds I survive it?

Been UR since 11/4, haven't heard anything since. Figured when I didn't get a call I was waiting for the ding... but now people that went UR later than I did are getting dinged?

It's the things you think about in late January.

Poor. Just like the rest of us. About 10% make it out of FR (allegedly)

No. FR 1/23

Anyone wanna guess if Under Review at this point is good or impending doom?


I think it might depend on how long you've been under review. But honestly, no news might be good news at this point.

11/24 here. I think if we were getting dinged it would have happened already. I think it means we're in the other 50% of the FR batch that will get sent for review soon.

Yeah, I really have no idea what to expect as someone still UR at the moment, but hopefully it means at least FR.
