Curious about this too - Stanford says they’ll release decisions next week, which is potentially after Berkeley’s deadline.

Edit: Is the Berkeley deadline midnight on the 11th (ie 12:00 am 7/11), or before the 12th? There seems to be conflicting phrasing on the admitted students site.

The admissions email says the 11th at midnight (12am). Also waiting to hear from Stanford. According to Berkeley’s statement of intent it just requires you to decline any offers of admission you have at the time you fill it out. Thus, if at the time you fill it out you still haven’t heard from somewhere, it’s okay to fill out the form and then later, if admitted somewhere else, withdraw.

Let's stay in touch "still waiting" group. Add your name if you're waiting and we can support each other and sort things out Friday and next week. FYI: I'm sure I'm like the rest of you -- admitted to other schools (even higher ranked than Berkeley), but I'd really like to go there to be closer to my family. I also "feel you" NYTransfer; I'm feeling like an "also ran," but I'm trying to keep my spirits up -- especially with the writing competition for CLR starting tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to writing when I don't know if I'm in or not :roll: Have a Happy 4th of July, 2019!

I got in on Monday night!

I have two friends at my school who are both waiting. One with grades just below mine and another with better grades. I'm not sure what to make of that.

Hi, everyone! The website indicates all decisions will be released by early July. Maybe today is the day? Nervous!!!

I believe admissions was closed today.

Looking at last year's thread, it looks like they released dings and acceptances simultaneously—is anyone aware of any rejections so far?

Still in review here as well. It seems like those who were accepted have until the 11th to respond. Maybe there's a hidden wait-list?
