    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?

    It's called an appeal, and Berkeley requires new/significant/compelling information (or important info that wasn't presented on the app). You'll have to write a letter, etc. Only about 10% of those who appeal actually get it. Here's the UCLA info on it (basically the same for Berkeley):

    WHAT?! Can you seriously call in and know if you are admitted or rejected before they post the decisions online??!?!?!?

  • mvseniormvsenior Registered User Posts: 121 Junior Member
    what email ur friend got?
  • MoreThanWordsMoreThanWords Registered User Posts: 82 Junior Member
    OMG, my friend got ADMITTED today at 6 pm. TODAY 3/26/08
    Unbelievable. I have to ask him if he got an e-mail (it doesn't matter, though).

    EDIT: It's because he participated in this Intercollegiate Program for High School Students at CAL during summer and they called them notifying them of their admissions status. My friend who's a Berkeley scholar did not get a call yet, but she said 3 got notified so far of acceptance and 1 or 2 rejections. She said she'll check hers tomorrow.
