It was email last year (and for the previous years I could find on here) so it will probably be email again.

Got an acceptance email 2 minutes ago, have until July 13th to accept or decline it.

For reference, I am at a California T1, 3.93 GPA (top 5%), strong ties to CA and Berkeley in particular.

Congrats to those who were accepted. Condolences to everybody else. I wish you luck with the rest of your cycles!

Anybody know how much need based aid a fairly average income person can expect?

I got in around 5:30 on Friday. I’m about top 15% from a t20 in the Midwest but I have strong California connections and connections to Berkerley in particular.

Try checking your spam or promotions inboxes, my email was categorized as a promotion by Gmail. If it's not there you might try calling.

Are y'all going to accept or are you waiting on other decisions? I'm waiting on Harvard but I could be swayed if Berkeley offers me decent need based aid.

I am going to accept when possible, didn't even do the gift aid application. I figure the sooner I get started on OCI (EIW at Berkeley) the better and I don't have high hopes for my chances at the other schools I applied to. I would definitely enjoy making contact with anyone else that plans to transfer in so feel free to shoot me an email at barclayc26@gmail.com. I have already told my school that I am going to accept the admission offer from Berkeley.

I just heard that my school has never increased a scholarship between 1L and 2L year so that means Berkeley it is! Feel free to email me at JulianColeDiamond@gmail.com and we can work on starting a Facebook group for class of 2020 transfer students, would be great if we can find a way to go into school and not have to worry about transferring becoming an isolating experience.
