Hurray,

The email was rather generic, only stating that I have been accepted for the 2009-2010 academic year. Financial aid decisions will be made separately and hopefully will arrive before March 19th deadline. I am not decided on the environmental law specialization, but I will definitely put a stronger emphasize on environmental law issue while being there.

I was accepted by UC hastings today at the same time. But I have not heard anything from UC berkley and UC Davis.

Does anybody have the same occasion as me?

Do you think the three universites, berkley, hastings and Davis, share the information about applicants?

I don't want to belive they are adjusting their applicants in each school by sharing information.

Please give us more information about this problem.

I find it highly unlikely that these three universities share information about their pool of applicants and potential ll.m. students. Of course, I have no insights in the functioning of their admission offices but two things let me doubt your assumption: a) data privacy laws (of course, no clue about the details of US privacy laws, but if they are in any way comparable to the German standards, than sharing personal information with other universities would require your previous and explicit consent b) university competition both for excellent students and their money - why should they try to artificially adjust the pool of their applicants, especially since Berkeley is ranked so much higher than Hastings and Davis.

Any thoughts on my arguments?

Sacha, could you please tell us if there are "additional conditions" for this deposit, such as the withdrawal of any pending applications, the refusal of any current admission offers from other schools etc.?

NYU adopts this aggresive policy... how about Berkeley?
Thanks!
