Rollin Rollin Rollin Roll

<p>just want to ask:
Does UCB adopt a rolling admission policy??</p>

<p>also does cal give a damn about how much/how good your EC is?
They stress on numbers way more than on EC right?</p>

<p>yes. they only have 5 slots for ECs. man, if I would of known I would of done only 5 EC's and earn 5 awards, then just stop.</p>

<p>UCs admit mostly on GPA and SAT/ACT scores.</p>

<p>Actually, a friend of mine had very average academic scores. He was, however, very interested in film and film editing. His personal statement was entirely on that interest and that is what he believes got him in. I believe that the higher up UC's look very closely at ec's/volunteering/outside interests because they get enough brainchilds and are starting to look more and more outside of grades.</p>

<p>Historically, UCB had a two-tier admissions process, whereby some students were admitted based on gpas & scores (the 1st tier) and the others were admitted based on total review of the app (2nd tier). A few years ago, they switched to all admissions done by total review. Hence, your grades, test scores, ECs, and essays are all taken into account. </p>

<p>If you search the UCB web site, you can find a report (about 90 pages) on admissions process and policy that maps all of this out.</p>

<p>Note this is how UCB does admissions. Each UC does it differently.</p>

<p>****z...!!!!!!!</p>

<p>EC is useless....doesn't show that you are a better student</p>

<p>EC IS BS!!</p>

<p>yo avoidingwork</p>

<p>Where's that 90 pages crap?</p>

<p>ardiu, </p>

<p>lol. I had to find it after you asked.</p>

<p>The report is <a href="http://education.berkeley.edu/accreditation/pdf/AVC_2001.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://education.berkeley.edu/accreditation/pdf/AVC_2001.pdf&lt;/a>. The report was written in 2001 and outlines the comprehensive review method, which is the one currently in place. </p>

<p>I found it off of this page - <a href="http://education.berkeley.edu/accreditation/A4.html#1a%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://education.berkeley.edu/accreditation/A4.html#1a&lt;/a>
After doing a search on 'committee on admissions'</p>

<p>thnx thnx ^ ^'''</p>

<p>About the other question...it's not rolling is it?</p>

<p>no, it does not have rolling admissions or EA/ED</p>

<p>Does it matter when we send in the applications? I mean do people who send it in earlier have a better chance??</p>

<p>probably not</p>
