They specified these exact dates? If so, where? I was getting lost in the information.

Also I just submitted FAFSA and CSS to them this weekend so I hope that's okay.


Got it from here:

Cool! I need to check out all these sites. I'm a little overwhelmed with all the information because of outside personal factors and still waiting for my first choice :'(

Yeah I get ya. I have all information and no time to look at it all. Just remember to write down the deadlines to accept the schollies you've already gotten. That's my biggest priority ATM.

Do you have a link to illustrate what you're saying about Berkeley's BL+FC placement lagging behind the rest of T14? Thanks in advance.

Is there a consensus on how Berkeley views materials sent after going under review and pre-decision? I am really regretting not sending an LSAT addendum and an optional essay.

It's partly self selection as well. Berkeley has a big push for PI. Also attracts a lot of PI people due to it being Berk.

The say on their website "On February 15 and March 20, three types of notifications will be transmitted: Scholarship Only, Scholarship + Grant, or Grant Only."

What is the difference between scholarship and grant? Scholarship is merit based and grant is need based? But these are both free money and do not need to be repaid, correct?
