Rejected via email around 2:00 Pacific Time. Looking at a shutout cycle, let's hope not.. CA, I love you - I thought you did too, why do your law schools care so much about GPA...

Don't panic if you haven't heard anything. The same thing happened to me last year. I applied early, and heard NOTHING until February. Other people got sent to fac review, got rejected. I go nothing. Then around Feb 15 I got sent to fac review. There is a second round.

I got in. All was well with the world. Seriously, there is still hope if you haven't heard anything.


Thank you! You are a glimmer of hope in our otherwise doom and gloom outlook in this thread.

p.s. This process makes us neurotic! I blame the system. It couldn't possibly be me :wink:

as someone who went UR after you in late Oct, i would say that this is definitely a good sign since i just got rejected. Cal is seriously considering you still.

Good luck!

Under review since 11/2. Patience is still running high, but I am not too hopeful. My GPA isn't amazing (below 3.5).

Eh, I don't even care. Berkeley used to be my #1 choice, but in the meantime I've been accepted by Chicago (which I totally never even dreamed of), and Berk has definitely lost its hold over me. Hear that, Boalt? Even if you accept me, I ain't coming beeeetch!

That being said, please still accept me.

Hrmmm, I'm a little suspect. I'm not sure that any early applicants (like UR 11/9 or earlier) were rejected yet. If someone can prove me wrong, please do! :D

Just got back from work and held my breath before opening my e-mail... no rejection e-mail.

Worldtraveler, you give me hope. I really want some more FR e-mails to go out tomorrow. Make it so, Dean Tom! Please, pretty please, make it so.

that said, at some other top schools you can basically live in luxury close to campus. that is a nice benefit, although one i don't particularly care about.


A "bit" of sacrifice? I would not want to live in that apartment, and I have lived in some very rough areas. For all intents and purposes, that is not a reasonable option. I couldn't care less about luxury; I do care, however, about safety. The previous poster who said not to malign Bed Stuy is right...it's not a bad place through and through. But you've got to know where to go (and a $700 apartment probably isn't one of those places).

No matter how you couch it, there's no denying that COL in NY is absolutely higher than Berkeley. If you really want, I could show you $450 apartments in Oakland (closer the Berkeley than Bed Stuy is to NYU) that few TLS-ers would want to live in, either. Yes you technically "can" live in NY for $700/month...but with almost all housing opportunities anywhere, you generally get what you pay for.



FWIW I pay 530 a month in a nice part of oakland that is only about 10 min away from campus.(about a 30 min by bike)

Jesus that sucks. At least with your awesome LSAT score (and military experience) you're bound to get into other T14s that aren't such GPA whores.
