What they say is irrelevant. Its like trying to date girls - you have to respond to what they do, not what they say.


everyone says that softs are important, yet numbers are the only accurate predictor of success.


You're a sexist pig.



How casually people say things like this is just stunning. Is the implication that "girls" are as a group dishonest or too dumb to know what they actually want?

LSAT >> 75 GPA = 50. I got 105k at NYU and 120 at Mich. Berk....22.5. Not to sound entitled to the monies but whaaaaa? Is this course correction for the $$$ flowing out of Boalt coffers due to the matching program?

I received 22,500 as well! I initially thought it was per year and then I read the entire letter :cry: Also received 120 at Mich but Berkeley was my top choice. I'll try to negotiate but I'm not confident.

Did you receive this info via email first? Or did you see it elsewhere, e.g., financial section of CalNet?

I received mine via email. Would there be a difference?

There wouldn't be a difference! Just wondering so that I know if it is worth it to obsessively log into CalNet to check haha. Sounds like I should just wait for the email instead. Thanks!

Received my financial aid offer on Sunday via email and it's still not on CalNet, so I don't think there's a point checking.

Does anyone know if they are going to do student hosts again for ASW or should I look into accommodations?

If I went under review on 2/6, does this mean I am out?

I'd reach out to admissions about this. I know some of the affinity groups do this for prospective students that fall within their groups, but not sure if the law school as a whole does it.

How long does it take to get your student ID after you get your acceptance email? Still waiting for mine and want to check out the admitted students page. :?

+1... Is there another round of FR?

It is hard to tell from LSN if anyone with UR 2/6 + has heard back since LSN just shows the complete date. There is someone on LSN who went complete 2/3 and was accepted 2/16 and another complete 1/30 accepted 2/6, but that is it really.
