10/22 UR, in via phone call. Originally had a missed call, called back and left a voice mail, Dean Tom called right back.

In, with an ASW flyout offer.

What kind of order are they going in, if they're admitting 10/22 and 12/7 UR batches on subsequent days?!

Wow, the 10/22 group's acceptances illustrate that they're going in no special order at all. And it's intriguing that they've returned to the phone-call system. I have a lot of hope for people in the early-November UR pool now.

You still care? You got into Stanford! That's dedication, I say...

Everything counts. Everything. And Berkeley has a special place in my affections for personal reasons. :D

"Personal reasons" = "So that I can say I got into Boalt, too".

Yes, it is the same girl! :D But no, she's not my gf. :wink: She's Ana Ivanovic, the 6-foot Serbian tennis star who won the French Open last year. (Although here you see her playing golf in Miami.)

Tall, beautiful, gentle, kind, and intelligent, she's all that a guy could want, no? And she's been my good-luck charm for this entire cycle. It's been a while since I received great news, though, so I thought that a new picture might revitalize my fortunes.


It did, immediately. Although not here. Now I know what to do when things are idle for a while! But clearly I still haven't found quite the right pose to warm Boalt's heart.

I doubt it helps much, if at all. I just expected that since I have the numbers (and imo, the softs), the alum thing would only reinforce that I know what Berkeley is all about, and would want to go back.

Same as alirod. I google-checked the area code to see where it was from. :idea:

People who went complete a week before me are starting to get in. This gives me a reason to status check more neurotically (not that I need an excuse, but this makes me feel less pathetic).

Don't sweat it. If you peruse this serpentine thread a bit, you'll find that completion date has no connection to decision date.

I know, sadly. I didn't say it was a good reason, just a reason.

Nice and hopefully prescient pun. :wink:

The most fun that I've had as a Stanford student has been at Berkeley: exhibits, film, dinners, etc. It's truly a wonderful place for a young person to live.

EDIT: Finally, I can openly make that remark after the SLS email today.
