Dean Tom,


I'm still slowly losing my sanity. I probably spend more than an hour every day dreaming about what it would be like to get into Berk. I am now thinking about going to Berkeley next week and camping out in front of your office. ADMIT ME PLZ BERK IS MY DREAM SCHOOL!!!

Would say maybe not if not for the ND rejection.

Fingers still crossed, though.


Amen sista. I just want the rejection over and done with already. UR since 10/22!

Could be real. There was a big batch of admits on 1/11.

I think it looks legit . . . probably just has some sort of great softs making his cycle unpredictable based on numbers. I have similar numbers, and have had similar unpredictability.

I think you're underestimating the importance of three points. But you could be right too.

Probably URM but just didn't state it. Waitlisted at Harvard with a 162 LSAT? Sounds ridiculous to me.

No news since yesterday's twitter update? What time of day do these things usually happen (decisions, not twitter)?

Decisions seem to come in the late afternoon Pacific time (i.e., a couple of hours from now if there are decisions today).

Any predictions about if and when we'll hear anything? This "near future" is not near enough for me. Dean Tom: you're killing me, Smalls.

Dear Dean Tom,
A fluke Valentine's weekend admission would really make both of our lives wonderful. And I'd put out.

Yeah, I have to say that that Twitter update on Tuesday about decisions in the "near future" was grossly misleading and probably unnecessary.

I'm just hoping that there isn't another mass rejection e-mail going out in the late afternoon just like last week. What a way to kick off a three-day weekend.

Yeah, 1/11 is a very common UR date. If this cycle goes anything like last year's, you'll start to get an idea of where you stand when March FR is determined (or if you're accepted before then).
