So this is a rolling wave, not a mass email sort of thing? I went UR1 a few days after Christmas I'm worried if I was too late and that it might be this week or bust for me.

Hell, I went UR1 12/4 and have not heard a peep since. I'm languishing, because Berk is one of my top choices.

Congrats to everyone who just got offer!

Have anyone who went from ED to RD heard back at all(offer/ding)?? It has been so quiet for me since the day I was noticed that I didn’t get the ED offer...

God this is sweet given I was outright rejected last year, I presume because I applied to late (1/16). Never give up hope yall. Try, try, try again.

Damn that's a quick turnaround. Wouldn't be surprised if I don't get accepted. If I'm being honest I didn't put to much effort into tailoring my app toward Berk.

I applied to Berkeley fully expecting a rejection. I figured I should apply to at least one school that I had little or no chance of getting into. I’ve already heard back from every other school I applied to. The next highest ranked was Vanderbilt, where I was waitlisted. I say all this to say that I’ve been UR since 10/3, and that there is likely a big wave of rejections on the way that will include folks like me.

In by email today!

Received 11/17 and UR1 12/27 (due to Dec. LSAT). Above both 75ths, wrote a Why Berk, RD.

I really want to be in the Bay Area for law school, so this was great news! (Also received it while staying with a friend who currently attends Boalt :D)

It says "Admitted!" now, but it hadn't changed as of my daily check this morning.
