They only just opened 30 min ago for the first time since right before Christmas. I'd expect a status checker soon.


I think they are closed on a furlough today. So, I think they open tomorrow.

I'm in the same boat. I think it's because they were closed until today. Hopefully we will hear something today.

What concerns me more is that I have not gotten any acknowledgment from NYU. I applied there last Friday and as far as I know they have been open all week.

NYU takes forever to respond, if they ever do. Don't worry

Aw. Their home page says "All Berkeley Law offices and the Law Library will be closed December 23 through January 6[,]" though. I guess I'll just assume they're closed until they tweet. Edit: Nvm, I was looking at the LS's home page. The Admissions page includes today. Curses.

And isn't it adorable, Oli? Have you seen the video it was pulled from?

is it wishful thinking, or haven't we already established that the UR date doesn't neccessarily mean much of anything? and even if it does, theres still the possibility of going to faculty review, rather than rejection. plenty of juicy agonizing time left, in my mind at least.

I prefer your scenario to the idea that I'm whiling away the hours to a slow death on the WL.

edit: UR since 11/2

sorry, sorry -- no! I'm saying stay positive, light at the end of the tunnel, everything happens for a reason, it's going to be okay!

let's all say it together, Under Review is not a rejection... Under Review is not a rejection. Faculty Review is coming, Faculty Review is coming!!!

it is actually my diabolical plot to make all those who've yet to hear back from boalt suicidal so as to free up more space for myself. immoral? perhaps. neccessary? maybe not. great way of passing the anxious waiting time? absolutely.

edit: bwuahhaahahahahahaha.
i thought the evil laugh would be a nice touch.

Managamy you're in a bit of a different boat though. I don't think anyone here is worried about being YP'd

Sometimes I feel like I'm on a motorcycle zooming down a deserted highway, zigzagging between the westbound and eastbound lanes.
