Berkeley should be willing to kill a kitten to get you to go there. Don't sweat.

I just emailed Berkeley today. They told me they are not able to make international calls.

I still believe, Tintin!

BTW, you saw they're making Tintin into a live-action film, right?


I did see that, I am skeptical. The whole computer-generated thing doesn't seem to mesh with the spirit of the comic in my head. what do you think?

Yeah, I saw the tweet. :( I wonder how long before email acceptances/rejections for international students start coming.

I don't like it either, and am glad you agree :) I have a "The Incredibles" threshold...unless a film about a comic character will be as good as "The Incredibles"...don't make it. It's that simple.

Interesting. Didn't know Boalt had a twitter. The only other one I know of (for admissions specifically) is YLS... do the other T1 schools have a twitter page?

From the Boalt twitter account: "Curious about our admitted student phone calling practices? No int'l calls. We only call once. No, we don't leave a message. Callbacks ok."

So...this may be naive, but let's say hypothetically that I'm in but they call me when I'm on a plane or my phone dies or I'm out of service...how/when would I be notified?

I totally did tweet at them yesterday. No response. :(

That's vague?


Oh, sorry, did see that. I was looking at...

This

What are the median LSAT score and GPA of admitted applicants?
For the past several years the median GPA and LSAT score of admitted applicants have ranged from 3.7-3.8 and 167-170, respectively. The ranges are broad. There are no numerical "cut-offs," nor are there any guarantees. We read applications very carefully and in their entirety.

reason #96854148652 to go to boalt: when the stress of finals really hits, you get the delightful fallback mantra of "p=jd"
