At ASW now - current students have been handing this out to admits/posting it around. The rest of the response from students and faculty at ASW has been pretty impressive; total transparency (open Q&A with a lot of the faculty, and the students who signed the student indictment), lots of solidarity for the survivor (student body turned out with "My Berkeley..." solidarity statements, many also wearing teal armbands).

Berkeley is annoying and releases all financial aid packages for everybody (undergrads, etc) at the beginning of April. :roll:

(went their for undergrad, was annoyed by this yearly)

If you look under your myfinances tab in CalNet you might be able to see your aid offer.

Not that I know of, someone has to create one. I'm not particularly inclined to do it, though it doesn't appear anyone else is either

Any reason I haven't been dinged yet Berk??? I know my 166 doesn't impress you. I see you laughing at my 3.29 GPA so let me ask you this, why the wait?! Do you prefer to draw this out and watch me suffer ? You are sick in the head.

I think I'm going to go mad waiting for this scholarship information... I have a deadline for another school approaching soon and I can't really weigh my options until I hear from Berkeley on financial aid. Should I just keep waiting or should I reach out to the financial aid office?
