I was under the impression that they stopped matching scholarships beginning last cycle. Is this still going on informally?


Formal matching program is over. They negotiate like any other school now.


Thanks for confirming! Hope all that smoke and ash is clearing up!

Have an ED applicants gone under review? I submitted 10/11 and haven't gotten a completed email (not sure if they send these) or the status checker login.

Has anyone heard about the possibility to study abroad at Berkeley? All the other T13 include info about which schools you can study at, but not Berk!

Re-checking in. Going to work on writing my Why Berkeley and BLOS essay this week. Unfortunately I can't really see myself going here without the scholarship, so I'm gonna have to focus on this a lot.

Hi!

Is anyone willing to read my Berkeley personal statement?

It's around 2.5 pages!

Does anyone know if Dean Tom is reviewing applications this cycle or is it someone else since he leaves in December?

Checking in here until the official class forum is up!

CA resident, deferred last year.
LSAT > 75%, 25% < GPA < 50%
I wrote a slightly more detailed personal statement and a Why Berkeley essay.

Is anyone at all worried about the dip in USNWR ranking? I understand that there were extenuating circumstances, but it's still a bit of a bummer, no?

Hi! Do they dates in the Berk status checker change throughout the review process? What do they mean?

Hi! Is it normal if my status stay at "We have received your application" for almost a week? Why does it not say completed? I have sent all my materials and every box is checked at the bottom of the page. Is this because I am registered for LSAT in Dec or does it simply take time to go complete?

As I understand it, if you told them to wait on your December LSAT, then you won’t go complete until that score is in. That said, a week is by no means an abnormal amount of time to go complete in any case. It takes longer for most folks.

Got it, thanks! I didn't ask them to wait for my Dec score, so probably just need a couple more days to go complete.

Would you go to Berkeley under Early Admissions?

It would probably lead to around 160K in debt.

The hiring of Dean Chemerinsky is going to set the ranking thing straight, so I see the dip as being very temporary.

It says on their twitter that early decisions are out December 2nd.
