Crap...sk, you got the e-mail and went under review later than I did.


You probably shouldn't stress, the email might not mean anything... Though I kinda hope it does!  :P

I guess I'm just worried I didn't pass initial review or whatever, and that a rejection is soon pending.

I bet a school like Boalt -- high app volume, etc. -- would probably have a few batches of these e-mails to send. If nothing came via e-mail by tomorrow, then I'd start worrying (perhaps).

When did you guys go complete?

I sent my application in very shortly after October. They didn't send me the, "Your application is under review" until a month later on 11/14.

Did anyone get this email who got the "under review" email in January (even though I applied long before)?

Yep.  Emails I got:

Based on the above link, it seems that if you don't get that e-mail and you don't get in then you are dinged. I'm basing this on the fact that he explains that he accepts 550 people, and that the committee accepts another 200 out of 1600 and WL/rejects the other. Doesn't seem like he decides on the WL. So if no e-mail in a day or two...

Didn't I just explain all this in previous post?  Nobody believes the Boalt expert, they need to hear it from the horse's mouth!

Well, yeah, but it wasn't clear from your post that WL wasn't an option for those who didn't "pass" the review.
