Anyone care to speculate on this?
I got the "under review" email from Berkeley a week or so ago... today I got ANOTHER email from them saying that my app was "selected for further review by the Boalt Hall faculty admissions committee" and that my decision will be avail after March 22... anyone else recieve this? Anyone know what this means?
I just got this too. No clue what to make of it.
does this sound like that Michigan deferral email to anyone else?
I'm gonna say no because they are saying they will give you an answer in 3 weeks. That's really not a deferral. Also, since it's this late in the game and they are starting to reject/waitlist people (or, rather, people are calling and finding out that they've been rejected/waitlisted), what would be the point of deferring anyone?
I mean, I guess it's a deferral, but I really think it's them finally starting to fall in line with our way of thinking and realizing that maybe absolute silence isn't the best way to run an admissions campaign and letting those of you still in contention know as much.
But maybe not.
