Looks like it's tough out there today. Got mine, too.

I was expecting it. But I guess I was crazy-hoping that, amid a likely record-setting year in law-school apps, my abysmal LSAT would somehow be overlooked.

But in addition to wondering why I wasted my app $$, I'm still trying to figure out what took 'em so long. I was under review 1/11 and certainly didn't go FR. I'm double-super extra auto-ding, so really this could've been handled, like, 1/13.

Yikes. That's ridiculous! I'm so sorry :(

Still alive here so far. UR 1/11, 3.78/178 retake from 167.

Non-FR ding via e-mail today -- 3.84/168, UR 10/22 -- not heartbroken but certainly disappointed.

I'm guessing there was a massive wave sent within the last hour. 20+ rejections on LSN alone today. God knows how many they sent in total.

Also rejected. 3.77, 171.

Edit: For those interested, my email was sent at 1:41 PM, so I guess they're still sending them.

I actually kind of respect Berkeley for that. They don't string people along. They have to reject 7000+ applicants every year, so they just do it without mercy or waitlist games.

For those who got the rejection email, what does your status checker say?

You should have. Berkeley is just ridiculously stingy with their waitlists. (Some people like that they don't soft-reject a ton of people with the waitlist, but IMO it makes them miss some great applicants like yourself who would definitely stand out on the waitlist.)

Oh well, good luck with YHS! You should get at least one :)

Some URs even later than 1/11 were rejected, up to as late as 1/25 on LSN.

Add me to the list. Got my ding email at 1:10.

And thus ends my Rice-a-Roni dream. *sigh*
