omg just went UR. I submitted 12/22 and complete about a week ago. That was fast. How long does it take to get from UR -> DR. This is a huge huge reach for me but a dream school.

Would it be insensitive to ask you to make sure you withdraw your application beforehand?


it's funny that you think i'm joking

aww sorry about the disappointing facebook email! and yep my status is Admitted!


Seriously? Dean Tom called me on the 21st, and my status is still under review... haha now I am a little worried.

"Oh, sorry Shaggier. Turns out we had the wrong number. Good luck with your cycle though!"

Hey, you've got slightly higher numbers than I and are already in at NYU, so I wouldn't be too ready to snuff myself out if I were you.

Congrats to the one who just got in, by the way! I think my acceptance email is being delivered by carrier pigeon.

Does anyone know if they send an email every time your status updates? As in...if I'm rejected, will I get an e-mail? :(

I went UR today after submitting my application exactly a week ago (01/04). I was never even "Complete". Berkeley is fast at processing apps because they get your LSDAS report electronically instead of by snail mail. (I really don't understand why more schools don't do that.)

As for a decision, here's to hoping it's fast. I'd like to get a quick admit before going back to school or at least know that I'm screwed at more places than I think if I get a reject.

I was never even "Complete"


Berkeley's status checker never says complete. Under Review is basically their "complete."

Not true. I was briefly complete (about an hour or so).

haha yea it changed. have other people who got called a while ago had status changes? maybe they're just disorganized and changed the people who got emailed today. or they're playing hard to get to make you want them more.

In the past hour, my status has changed to "Under Review." And yes--I have checked it that much today.

I submitted on 12/24 and just went UR. My first UR email! Is it sad that it got me really excited? I just love, love, love Berkeley and hope they at least string me along for while before crushing my dreams.
