This is too endearing. Why do schools have to make me like them before they admit me?

BTW, Berkeley, please admit me :)

I can't believe the offer to fly out for ASW.

Since submitting my app, though, I moved to SF from the East Coast. I told Dean Tom that a BART ticket would suffice. :D

I got the call today! I was in a security line at the airport, and I could barely hear Dean Tom. But I could make out the words "congratulations" and "admitted"; that was good enough!

For those curious about stats, I went complete on 11/18 and went under review on 11/20. My numbers are in my profile.

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. 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!

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!!!


huge congrats, everyone - especially catharsis... Rock on!!!


THANK YOU SO MUCH GYMBOREEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D

Congrats to all admits. It will be really interesting to see if the high LSAT emphasis seems to continue.
