For all we know, Dean Tom could be having a club sandwich and a cup of chili on his lunch. There's gotta be more than 1 measley call today!

I just need to accept the fact that I won't be getting any work done because I am too busy staring at my phone and email :x

I can't believe I am in this early. I thought I had a chance maybe via committee review sometime in March... but never did I think I would get an outright acceptance (with phone call and a flight for ASW!) before Christmas. I am honored.


OMG Shaggier congrats!!!!!!!! So excited for you.

Ok, but seriously, does that normally happen? At most schools it took a week or two to go to review, but I went from recieved to review in 3 hours after submitting 2 days ago. Is this just Berkeley's way of saying complete, or did I get fast-tracked to a rejection?

with Berkeley, its more like a complete--it was in my experience anyway. Check out my LSN for all dates.

well it looks like they're done for the day as it's almost 4 out in california. i'm hoping they will make some more acceptances tomorrow and that they will scoop me up and end my cycle.

a big congratulations to Shaggier1 and the others who got in today!

I submitted 10/20 and was UR since 10/22

I really think Boalt's UR is just a "complete"

I submitted 10/15 and have been UR since 10/22 as well... but mine reads "application under review"... never got a "complete" message.

I imagine they'll throw out an admit or two (something like yesterday) for today. My fingers are crossed but honestly it'll be nice over holiday break to know that Boalt is NOT sending out anything (until the 7th of Jan.). Then we can continue to panic once we're in the new year :P

Congrats, numbers twin :) I'm hoping that your acceptance translates into some luck for me too!
