    spring semester means you're not as good as the other acceptees, that they didn't have room for you. you can do their freshman extension program for the fall and then join them in the spring, and u can still live on campus. my friends are in it, and they siad its the same if not better than going to berkeley in the fall, because the FE has smaller class sizes and is still taught by professors. but you have to get your intent to register w/ a 100 dollar deposit in soon. sending that in is no obligation, though, u could still decide to go to another school.

    i'm doing this. whoop whoop! GO BERKELEY!!

    Accepted to Berkeley Engineering (electrical)

    Location: Austin, Texas
    GPA (Weighted) 4.36
    Rank: 7/433
    SAT: 800M, 730V
    SAT II: Math IIC: 800, Physics 800, Writing 730
    Race: South Korean

    4 years of band (lead flute in varsity band), plus many band honors

    professional web designer
    a bunch of UIL awards in Math/CS/Science
    NHS/Spanish club/Korean club/chess club/and bunch of other clubs that probably don't count for anything.

    Berkeley only accepts 10% from out of state, which is why I feel really lucky for getting in.

    My friend had a 1600 on the SAT, a 2310 on the SAT II, and is ranked 12/433 in the class, but he got rejected from Berkeley :(

    Accepted for Spring still means accepted. You have a choice of staying home till Spring or attending the extension program while staying at the dorms.
    Courses offered during extension are all requirements that you have to take anyway to graduate from UCB. Grades do not count in your Berkeley cumulative GPA.

    But why did they do this? I don't THINK I am like a less desirable applicant, I have 4.2 UC GPA 1550 SAT bla bla you know and UCLA wanted me for honors, same with my friend, higher gpa lower SAT, and he got into spring too. I know weaker students who got in for fall. Do they not realize that this spring thing is sort of a put off, like a sort of lesser acceptance? Is it part of their "diversity" thing in which they want to diversify the strength of their students? I'm so confused. IF anyone who knows about this could please enlighten me I'd really appreciate it, and I have a few friends who would appreciate knowing, too.

    UC gpa 4.03
    Sat I 1490
    SAT II 720/710/710
    Great essay, ec's

    Don't read too much into the Spring thing. It means they filled the class and had qualified people they weren't ablt to take, so they offered them Spring.
