OMFG, congrats!!


1/11... man, that's really far away... guess that means silence for a while after whenever the last round of calls is... (apologies for bad sentence structure)

Thanks! I'm still in shock. 1/11 is far away but at least I know.

RT @BoaltAdmissions We'll be making some congratulatory phone calls this afternoon. Worth noting: We will be closed 12/23 - 1/10 for holidays and furloughs.

Way too long to wait if I don't get a phone call today. :(

JUST RECEIVED THE CALL!

(well, I think so anyways.. it was Dean Tom's office)

I accidently missed it. Actually.. it got dropped somehow. Which sucks. I saw the number.. got suuuuper nervous. Answered phone. Then my phone beeped and said "call ended"

I called back but it went straight up voicemail. :(

Why don't you wait and ask Dean Tom when he calls you? :D

In all seriousness, though, I would definitely suggest sending the updated grades if they demonstrate an upward trend. Berkeley tends to place substantial weight upon the GPA. Your school probably "can" send them directly, but you might want to ask Boalt which method they prefer.

Thanks everyone!

Man, calling Dean Tom is more nerve-racking than calling any girl after a nice date. I keep looking at my phone.. and chickening out.

Seriously. There are only a couple of possible outcomes:

1. He's admitting you.
2. He called the wrong number.
