Is it okay to hope, still? As soon as I found out my quartile yesterday, I felt this incredibly strong need, like wanting something so bad my whole body wanted to implode; the weight of generations bearing down on me yet also, lifting me beyond tiptoes. Oh my heart swelling.
Wrote way more than I wanted to right there. Forgive me. I am only just a hopeful too.

i don't think boalt has dipped too far into the waitlist. last year, they only took 12. here's the interview with dean tom which i found pretty useful
but how many people did they go through on the waitlist to actually get those 12 people to attend? I assume a large number of people who remain on the waitlist would not actually accept if offered...
I don't want to induce any pessimism here, but though I should chime in with my experience (although I think I contributed it much earlier on this thread). I was waitlisted last year, ranked in the 1st quartile. I didn't get in, so I think we can presumably say they didn't dip into the 2nd quartile last year.
I loved Berkeley so I applied only there last year, knowing I could broaden my scope this year. Anyway, I'm heading to Michigan and happy. Good luck to all of you, though!

I wasn't even sure if non-matching merit scholarships existed...but either way, I would imagine that most of their merit $ has been awarded at this point. I could be wrong though!

I know this might be a stupid question, because I haven't had too much time to look at the materials yet, but is there housing available for us? Or do we have to search on our own?

haha good call. here's to hoping!
i also visited boalt yesterday, and though the facilities aren't as nice as others i've seen, i would give nearly anything to go there! cheeseboard, strada, gypsys everyday, that would be the life *sigh*
you wont be able to eat gypsys every day, you'll get sick of it after 8 days or so - first hand experience. you could eat cheeseboard every day though
