Boalt is rejecting over the phone if you call...
« on: March 28, 2005, 07:27:07 PM »
Some news to brighten everyone's day:  if you, too, would like to learn that "unfortunately, Boalt Hall is unable to offer you a place in next yrs class," just call and furnish your name and SS number.  They'll give you the good news if they've decided...or, you can just wait for your letter...

Yep - DENIED. Not that I'm suprised, but it sucks. I feel like I wasted $$ on the 4 schools that denied me so far, that I never had a chance at in the first place. Stupid me.

You've silenced the infernal demons of "What if?". That's worth the price, in my mind. :).

Ambs- sorry about that.  I'm following your drama like a soap opera & hoping for another acceptance!  Good luck with Hastings.

Add me to the list of those dinged by Boalt over the phone :/

They told me they had already filled up most of the class at this point too.

So essentially you are rejected if they don't tell you you have been admitted over the phone. If they just tell you a decision has been made, then you are a reject? is that the gist?
