Hopefully this is correct! Just figured I'd let everybody here know since this forum has been a good source of info for me in the past.


You've significantly reduced my anxiety. Thanks!!!!!

Anyone know if the recent fr admit wave will be part of this too or are we waiting until later?

Was in the FR group and literally JUST got the email informing me I've been waitlisted, which is actually not bad considering my GPA is sub-3.5 and Berkeley is known to be more focused on GPA than LSAT for admissions.

I have no idea, but I'd guess that maybe the FR admit wave conveniently being the day before the scholly offer wave means that we'd be included? Maybe that's just wishful thinking.

Thanks for the info! Weird they're working on Saturdays! Well, I've been working on Saturday's so I guess it's not too far fetched :(

Its Berkeley though so is it really that surprising? We're the fools for believing they'd run according to schedule.

+1 I was like "damn UCB, look at you!" Then they fell off on 2/15.

Deep down I'm expecting we get nothing today, but it's been one hell of a week, so I'm happy lying to myself and grabbing onto false hope! 8)

No, Cal is just a weird black box. I was rejected straight up with similar stats last year.

I didn't save the schedule, but the RSVP form has the following events. IIRC, there are campus tours on Thu morning, and there's only the brunch and not much else on Sat.

Thursday 03/16: Welcome Lunch
Thursday 03/16: Evening Reception Celebrating Diversity
Friday 03/17: Breakfast
Friday 03/17: Lunch
Saturday 03/18: Admitted Students & Alumni Brunch


Thank you! I vaguely recall reading some language about only being able to get the travel subsidy if you attend one of the days (which I'm guessing is Friday). Can anyone confirm this? Also, does anyone recall the time of the Saturday brunch?

ASW site is back up!

Thoughts as I obsessively check my email all day: did UCLA release scholarships last night in an effort to woo all of us waiting on Berkeley

I just called to see if they were even open and just got their after hours voice mail. I don't have a good feeling about today but I hope I'm wrong

Did you call the law school or the financial aid office?
