    Someone's probably just messing around with you. The only way I think you get in early is you were accepted for the Cal scholarship. If you got that, then I think you're in.

    Hmm. not the Cal Alumni Scholarship. The Cal Regents Scholarship. Those who got that definitely have gotten in. Or at least were told en masse at the day they went to interview.

    Some athletes who are going to play on Cal teams have heard.

    No, it was apparently just a regular application, no recruiting/scholarship involved...hmm, maybe he is screwing with me.

    yes; those of us that were invited to interview for the regents' scholarship were notified, but no one else. official decisions will be up this thursday night.

  • SambagoSambago Posts: 297Registered User Junior Member

  • stilllwaitingstilllwaiting Posts: 37Registered User Junior Member

    ravenclaw17, how was ur friend notified of his rejection?
  • EternalfrostfireEternalfrostfire Posts: 33Registered User Junior Member
    Likewise, EL_TACO_GRANDE, how did he get notified?
  • kchenkchen Posts: 4,236Registered User Senior Member
    The only people who know are Regents and athletes. If the alumni scholar notifications came out, there's a good chance that you were accepted...

    a person at my school called Berkeley today and asked. They told him he was rejected :[

    I heard a rumor that sometimes they allow exceptions where if you convince them, get straight A's senior year, and write an appeal letter, they will accept you around June. Anyone else heard of this?

    ^are you kidding? over the phone? that's harsh!!
  • forgottenhawkforgottenhawk Posts: 518Registered User Member
    Wow xserendipityx! I'm surprised they'd leak decisions just like that. Thats a total violation of all the Berkeley bureaucracy behind all of the deep analysis over a so-called "likely" email people have received. That said, that is very harsh. Ouch. :(

    And there's always people who get in on appeal, but thats very rare.

    I bet there's going to be a lot of people calling in now. Lol.
