I submitted 11/1, UR on 11/11. LSAT: 176, LSDAS GPA: 3.95. If I haven't gotten a call yet, am I out? What do we think? I've been in class all day, where I remain, so I haven't been able to read through the entire thread...

+1! I am happy for people, but sometimes I get a little annoyed that people who applied like 11/25 are hearing back... I applied at 9am PST on October 1!

To those that have people in their lives that tell them they cant do or accomplish something NEVER believe them. Always keep pushing and always keep your head up because miracles happen and dreams DO come true.

THANK YOU BERKELEY AND CONGRATS TO ALL OF THOSE ACCEPTED!!!


Hey, congrats!!!

Agreed. This cycle has been extremely hazardous to my health.

NEVER in my life would I have thought that a school like Berkeley would want me. Getting that call today really validated all of my hard work and dozens of people telling me I would never be able to do it. I called Dean Tom back and he was so nice and told me that he's sorry for not calling me a second time but that he's extremely busy (which is very understandable). He told me he's flying me out for ASW so I get to meet all the cool people on TLS that will have been accepted by then hopefully!!!

TREMENDOUS HONOR!! Dean Tom seemed like a really nice guy over the phone and very understanding that I could only blurt "OMG" and "WHAT AN HONOR" a billion times. I cant wait to go to California. Ive never been and Im super stoked!

Haha your posts are always so enthusiastic. I love it. So would you pick Cal over your "dream school" UT?


hahaha thanks crackberry!!! :D

to be honest, I never expected to get into any school higher than my dream school. UT has and will always be my love but now obviously I want to keep my options open. I feel so extremely fortunate and humbled. Haha and Im surprised you remembered me from the UT thread.. that's cool! haha.

anyway, interesting question though because Im sure I'll be bombarded with the same from family and friends. if you have any advice for me and can PM it to me I would love to hear it. I feel confused haha. I havent visited either school though so that along with whether I can financially afford it will play a huge roll in my decision.

This is kind of cute, from Boalt's Twitter page:

"It's true - 'tis the season. Dean Tom is personally calling **some** admitted students to congratulate them. But he can't call you all!"

Adorable. :roll:

TREMENDOUS HONOR!! Dean Tom seemed like a really nice guy over the phone and very understanding that I could only blurt "OMG" and "WHAT AN HONOR" a billion times. He also mentioned that many students dont call him back so if you miss the call make sure to CALL HIM BACK. It's a nice gesture to always return a call, ESPECIALLY TO BERKELEY!!!!! I cant wait to go to California. Ive never been and Im super stoked!

Sitting around waiting for someone else to decide my fate and inform me at an undetermined time between now and 5 months from now while others are getting is in just...sigh.


+1 - I can't handle the fact that I no longer have any control over the situation.

Does this mean:

1. Some are accepted but won't get a call?
2. Some will be called by someone other than Dean Tom?

So calls are still going out? I really feel like im dreaming to hope for one. I agree its hard waiting for a call, I wish they did it in some order...so we would know if we were passed on yet.

edit: at the end of the phone call, i said 'have fun with the rest of your calls' (i was spazzing; i meant it nicely) and he said 'well, that's part of my job'....i think he thought i was being sarcastic :oops: :oops: :oops:
