The first $$$ wave came out shortly after FR2 decisions, so I'm thinking they're trying to push out the last acceptances of the cycle before getting to a second $$$ wave.

Berkeley is one of the schools that doesn't want us to send in an update on our application correct? [IIRC they only wanted it if it was in regards to the C&F but not if you have done new cool things. Is this correct?]

I applied two months ago today. People who applied two months ago yesterday have heard back, according to LSN. If only I had applied just one day earlier...

Just kidding.

From reddit:

"I know! Seriously.
Btw, I called them today and they aren't releasing decisions today after all :/
The admissions person I talked to said another wave is coming in the next week or so. So that's hopeful - but vague"

Is this a waitlist or FR or what?

Ditto. I wonder how small is small and what the odds are of getting in off of the waitlist?

+1 So to summarize: after basically have 1 small wave in the past month and a half, they put us in literal purgatory? :evil:

seems like a hold more than anything. mid-April is when the tentative decision deadline is and June is the final decision deadline so maybe they want to see how many people are planning on attending?

Got this email too :( So, I'm guessing this is WL? Anyone know how big this group is?

It seems like other people have gotten explicitly waitlisted. I'm not sure what this means. My status checker still says UR 2/6.

But the timeline makes sense for a waitlist.

Sounds to me like a middle finger to the actual waitlist and that the hold group will be considered first. good luck!

Admits can defer a decision until June 1, but must inform of that intention by April 15.

I find the "final decision" wording confusing because it would seem that if you're on the cusp now (subject to those who withdraw by mid April), they could always move you to the waitlist if they still haven't found a spot for you by June 1.

"A decision has been reached" 3/13. Is that bad? No email.
