I'm also ED and just gone one. I guess they may be sending them out to all ED applicants then? Obviously paranoid that this means we are now being considered for RD


I wish there was someway of telling if they got our apps as ED. Think we r just being paranoid - good sign that we both got it at the same time tho. Maybe they think a week is enough to go thru all ED apps. Idk just mad speculating at this point lol


Me too. We're probably just being paranoid. I bet they waited until they had processed all of the ED applications before they started reviewing them and that's why it took so long for us to get an UR email

Mine does say “application signed” under Requirement List. Maybe this is how we can tell if we r ED or not.


Mine says "application signed" too but I think that's just the signature we make on all law school applications, not the ED contract. I don't see my ED contract listed under there but I dont remember if it used to be.

Since they themselves said the decisions will be on the 4th, i would stick with that

it said on their twitter that they would release Early Decisions on Dec.2nd, which is Saturday so little odd.

Good luck, everyone, and congrats to accepteds!

Application went complete 11/13, but no "under review" yet. I got a confirmation email that they wouldn't hold for my Dec 2 LSAT re-take, but no status change on the checker.

Stats: Above both 75ths. Wrote a Why Berk.

I think it means they either 1) haven't gotten to you 2) have gotten to you and you're in or 3) have gotten to you and you're dinged.

People that got those emails are the people they think are competitive enough for a second look by another committee.


Oh ok, so basically people who aren't quite auto-admits, but are closer to admit than ding?

I'm probably in the 1 category, but if anyone who went UR at the same time as me got one then I'm going with a definite 3.


RD, went UR 10/23, no email...yet. but I am definitely no auto admit numbers so :roll:

In! Just got the call from Dean Tom! May or may not have made the most unattractive shriek/laugh sound when he told me, but no regrets! RD, LSAT >75, 25 > GPA > 50th, non-URM.

Was the phone number 510-642-8406? Just missed a call from Berkeley but I am from the area so not totally surprising!
