Fairly sure that's always been there.

Probably has been. I have it as well. I was thinking the status date would update if it was different.

Sorry to spoil the hope here, but I have the mailings section now, too, (and also didn't have it before) and I am not on FR. I've been UR1 since 2/6. And I'm definitely not getting admitted outright.

Same but I'm holding onto hope for getting admitted outright haha

Also I thought the box was there before...

My LSAT makes Berkeley quite the reach. I'm holding out hope that my softs being super Berkeley-friendly and my reverse splitter status will give me a shot overall given Berkeley's reputation for looking at a file more holistically and preferring high GPA, but there's no way that I'm getting admitted outright.

Maybe, but I never noticed it before if it was.

Are we thinking that tomorrow is going to be WL/deny and Friday acceptances, or all at once?

Looks like the dings/WLs came earlier on the same day as the acceptances for FR2 last year

Bump for sending good vibes out into the universe (or at the very least as far as Boalt Hall).

My neurotic ass called fin aid and they said merit aid wouldn't be coming out until late March. But honestly the person sounded like a student who was unsure so take this with a grain of salt

Wait what?? So they are just completely ignoring the Feb 15th date they gave?

That's why I think the person just didn't know what they were talking about. But then again, this is Berk so all bets are off

If they blow the FR deadline I'll be so annoyed.

so, my theory is the Feb date may have been just descriptive of sending out BLOS info. Because that happened around 2/14ish, right? perhaps the culprit is just imprecise language rather than straight up lies.

If only someone else would call... Who wants to be a hero today?


If I were not at work, I would call! So...someone else please :lol:

Also, they made a big deal about getting your fin aid apps in asap so you could know your scholly before ASW so this end of March business is REALLY bothering me :roll:

That's seems unlikely, because those were just invites to finalists, correct? Also, the language on the website refers to "offers" being given out around Feb 15th, and specifically under a heading of "automatically reviewed" awards.

Yup! And if you wanted to merit-only, you didn't need to send anything (well, maybe FAFSA...I sent it :P)

Hoping B gets more generous with merit aid this year.
I'm thinking I'll get fukt if it goes more towards need aid this year.
