Hi, Cal 2018! Yessss, I'm finishing the P.S., and after that, I will submit it. First I was gonna apply to the thesis track, but after I heard that Berkeley is not used to giving many scholarships for that program, I decided to apply for the traditional track.
How is your background??

I subimitted a week ago. Good luck for us.
By the way, does any one have information that admission office may consider TOEFL score submitted after deadline?
My TOEFL score is just above 100 so I'm thinking to retake TOEFL to get higher score.
However, such score cannot be reflected on LSAC before the deadline of Berkeley.
If anyone in the same situation, do you retake TOEFL ?

Hi, Ank!
I recently had a meeting with a woman from the UBerkekey Advanced Degree Programs Office. By that time, I had taken the Toefl, but I didn’t have the score, and she told me that if it was not the score that I expected, I could retake it even if the score would be submitted after the deadline.
In my case, I obtained 101, and am not going to retake it. The same woman told me that for them is enough just getting 100, and probably it wouldn’t change anything a higher score because you already obtained the score they requested. But is a personal decision!
Good luck

In my case, I applied on 20 December and the next day UCBerkeley sent me an email to inform me that my application had been processed and was complete for review purposes.
But, in your case, perhaps for the holidays they are sending the confirmations a couple of days later. If you are not sure, just send an email!

Hi all,

Have any of you applied for the professional track in addition to the traditional track? I've applied to both and have been accepted on the professional. The deadline to accept and pay the deposit is March 15th. Now they say on the website that if you reserve a place on the professional track and are subsequently accepted on the traditional, your deposit is transferrable. But what if I hear from other places (and it's good news) after I've reserved a spot and paid my $500? I don't know what to do but I don't want to end up letting Berkeley slip through my fingers while I'm waiting to hear from other places. If anyone else is in a similar position, what are you planning on doing??

Hi fdmuir, I have and I recently received an email informing that they extended the application response deadline of the professional track to March 15th because they understand that we may prefer one track over the other for various reasons, and that we may also be waiting to hear decisions from other programs as well. They also said that they will be announcing the traditional track decisions on early March, so I will wait until that time, since I'm already waiting for other schools too.

Hi Fiorella,

I saw that email too, which I think was very decent of them. I know that for a lot of people, the professional track is the much better option. However, for where I am in my career at this point, I think I would like to spend the academic year on campus. I really do hope that I'm fortunate enough to be offered a place on both. If so, I hope to see you there!

Hey everyone,

I applied to the J.S.D program, and I received an email today titled Studying with Top Faculty at Berkely Law which was about how impressive the faculty at Berkely. Is it a standard email that was sent out to all applicants? Is there anyone here who applied to the J.S.D program?

I believe it's a standard email sent to all applicants. I've applied for the LL.M program and received that a couple of days ago.

Maybe check your spam folder?

Since I've submitted my application I've received two emails:
1) Studying with Top Faculty at Berkeley Law
2) Career Development at Berkeley Law

And also a couple of emails telling me to join a virtual LLM questions and answers session...

Hi, just wondering if anybody's application status changed from "application complete" to "application ready for review" or "application under review".

Thanks!
