Nope, not yet...

I have just noticed that my status changed today, it now reads: "Application under review".

So, I guess things are (finally) moving...

Mine changed "under review" today (19/02/14). I thought they were sending out decisions on march 1st... Maybe it will be sooner.

According to Berkeley's web page: "Application under review - Your application is under review, and you will receive notification of the decision as soon as possible. Please note that the review process can take up to a month, and early or expedited decisions are not possible".

Hi everybody! I am a current LLM at Berkeley, so if you got questions don't hesitate sending me a message! Berkeley will send out decisions in the following days from what I know of last years decisions (they came out during this time of the year!)

Thank you, idodee.

It seems that you received offers from several schools, and eventually enrolled in Berkeley. Would you mind telling me what made you choose Berkeley out of such schools? Especially, I am interested to know how you compared U Penn and Berkeley. Thank you.

Hi Tsuki, my decision was based on two grounds: first, Penn does not specialize at all in international law (public), and I had literally no professor to work with there (I am doing the thesis). Second, Berkeley's reputation is much better and it is far more known than Penn (although the rankings can be confusing sometimes). And of course the weather is much better in Berkeley :)

Before my status changed to "under review" on the 18th of February, the status check site stated that most applicants will be informed by the 1st of March. Now that my status changed to "under review" that quote is no longer on the status check website.

Hope this helps

I haven't heard anything from them yet either.

Has anyone else been receiving emails from Berkeley as part of their mailing list? I just received one today about saving the date for their international alumni reunion.
