Haha glad to be of service! I thought Berkeley moved slowly but honestly once I did the math the whole process didn't take much time

Were you under faculty review or just "UR"?

I just realized my status checker said 12/23 not 11/23 (11/23 is when I submitted my application). I also expected a rejection so I'm just as bewildered. Starting to have some hope here lol

hahaha well you're def in a better position than me then. someone also said there was a second round of FRs last year so that seems like a possibility as well. idk at this point i've learned pretty definitively to trust nothing and expect only the unexpected

UR since 10/11. One could say that I am a UR phenom. People tell camp stories about how long I've been UR.

Last year thread you mostly get FR responses at the same time and around he date they tell you, not like super early. I think they finish the entire review before letting anyone know

In this morning via email.

UR 1/5, complete first week of December. LSAT and GPA >75th.

Cannot wait for ASW. Love the Bay and I hear Boalties are super laid-back and fun to talk to. Good luck to everyone still waiting for UR/FR and decisions!
