Bump


It's been silence for me...but I'm trying to keep it positive, since I've seen on LSN that there have been rejects already. :/

Submitted on 12/27, went complete on 1/3, UR on 1/8.... now the angst sets in; hoping the pain of waiting won't be too long.

Similar timeline :shock: It's only been a week, but the wait is killing me. I keep logging onto the status checker like a crazy person.

Don't do that to yourself. Berkeley is notoriously slow to get out decisions - they actually read your file. Expect it to be a month or more. People that submitted their applications at this time of the year - looking at LSN - many didn't hear back until the 24th of Feb, or March 13th, when they rejected about 75 LSNers.

Haha thanks for the heads up! In that case, I think I'll stop checking.

It certainty could be sooner, but I should think that is just torture if it was to be that long.

Based on LSN I’m expecting to be caught up in a big rejection wave next week or the week after... :cry:

I've been under review since 10/3...I don't mean to be negative, but I think it's realistic based on LSN that I am probably going to be in the first big wave of rejections some time in the next couple of weeks... but maybe not?
