Seems like no correlation based on this thread's sample.


Bummer, but better than a ding right now!

Lots of movement on status checkers today and I thought, "probably nothing on mine, I finally went UR last Monday." I was wrong. FR as of today. Anxiety levels increased. Maybe they were motivated because Trump's threat to defund Berkeley made them think, "well shit, let's get us some more lawyers who will represent us, now."

FWIW I did not write anything Berkeley specific either and my PS was two pages long. I have also never been to California. Above both 75th.

And I was accepted within a month. So you never know.

above medians, generic application w/ 2 page PS, and never been west. In after being under review less than a month

If I'm not mistaken, we went FR on January 12th, and decision today. So 19 days.

In after FR! Stats in profile. Did admitted students get an e-mail? It says it was mailed but didn't seem to get it.

Yes, you should be getting an email titled "Congratulations! You've Been Admitted to Berkeley Law School!"

So strange.. I just received the congratulations email in my inbox but it was timestamped 1:38 pm PST. Do you guys have gmail? Might have been a glitch in their server!

Ugh I saw all the acceptance emails posts and checked my email out of curiosity. Freaked out to see an email from Berkeley only to see results will be out Feb 24. I'm too tired for this. Also real salty because it's literally the day before Mock Trial Regionals (where are my fellow mockers?)

I wonder how many people go from FR to admitted. They could reject you before FR right?
