Yeah, I'm over it.

I think writing the letter helped me to get out my anger over this situation.  Although I will say that I want is not a reaction, but an answer.

But you are right in that it will most likely change absolutely nothing.

I only got the apology on Sat, but neither of the other two emails.

Ditto.

Berkeley has slipped quite a bit in my view lately.  I had been really looking forward to their decision, but now have gotten to the point where I really don't care.  With a new building, better student numbers, new profs, and a revamped administration they might become competitive, but otherwise it seems like their slide will continue.

it doesnt matter if Berkeley is really slipping, but that seems to be the perception of a lot of people; some people dont buy into it (I think Berkeley may be a tad overrated and COULD begin to slip- bit I think they are still a great school, def. t14 worthy) but they should do something to try to fight this perception or the rumors could become true.

This "administrative oversight" does not help people's perception.  I'm not saying that they are ttt now and i dont think this will affect their yield at all- but it is a rather embarassing incident for them.

Wow I'm so happy I only got the last apology email.  I'm sure I'll get rejected with my numbers, but I seriously think I would have had a heart attack if I went through the absolute bull that some of you went through.  I really can't even imagine that without wanting to kill somebody.
