What? On a Saturday? I thought we would at least be safe for the weekend...

Just reading a rejection email sent yesterday afternoon. UR 12/5, 3.9 GPA, 163 and I just completed my PhD in philosophy. Two days before my 30th birthday and Berkeley was my top choice--> Cue soul crushing disappointment. I think they are definitely trying to raise their 25/75th percentile LSAT numbers, but that's just my take. :cry:

Look at LSN. There have been people as late as UR 1/11 that have been rejected.

Really sorry to hear about all of the dings. From the sounds of tls.com it sounds like half of the people rejected have been seriously overlooked/underestimated. I'm really confused and worried...I haven't heard anything since 12/7 (I know...much less than others here) and I really don't know what to expect.

I can't even concentrate on school work...this is getting bad.

I'd be careful with Irvine; new programs take a little while to develop their reputations and move up the rankings.

Last year, Berkeley had one small group of AR admits on 2/5 (~10 on LSN) plus a few lone stragglers, but nearly everyone who didn't go into either the February or March FRs was rejected.

That makes sense considering how Berkeley's application review process works.

Why don't you keep your bad news to yourself, Benj.

By when would one need to have applied to make it into the February or March FR?

February FR, probably early December or so. It started already, and their results will be released in a couple of weeks. The March FR contains December and January applicants (not sure if it can contain people passed over for the February FR who were in before December; maybe).

To be positive, we definitely haven't gotten that AR-admit group yet. I'm guessing next week some time.

Don't know if you've seen it already, but I think you'll find the discussion in the UCI thread interesting. Starts around p. 8, I think.

Dean Tom,

Another week begins and my sanity continues its gradual decline. You have already rejected people with my UR date, which makes me even more tense. I LUV BERKELEY I WOULD BE THE PROUDEST GOLDEN BEAR EVAR! Plz call me with an acceptance sometime within the next 3 months/weeks/days/hours. The last option would be much appreciated.

would everybody who is (potentially) part of the Feb/Mar FR have already received an email saying that they have made it to FR? in other words, if i went UR in Dec and have not yet received a notification that I've gone to FR, do you think there's still a chance that I could make FR? i only ask because there's no way i'm an auto-admit and the only realistic chance at getting in is through the FR.

March FR notification probably won't happen until after the February FR is over on 2/19. You could definitely make FR.

Haven't been following this thread but I am under review 11/18 and have no received any Faculty Review email. Is that a good or bad thing? What is faculty review?
