Got waitlisted in Berkeley about 3 hours ago... they said they will rank the wait-list during May.

Nonetheless, I got accepted in other top-ten school, so I guess I won't give it much thought.

Good luck to all those who are still waiting!!

Me got waitlisted too.

I'll just write to ask them to remove me from the list as I no longer intend to go there anyway.

2008/3/20, Berkeley Law LLM&JSD Program :
Dear __________,

After thoroughly reviewing your application for admission to the UC Berkeley School of Law LL.M. program, the Advanced Legal Studies Committee has decided not to offer you a place for the 2008-2009 academic year.

Our decision was not easy. This year, we received nearly 1000 applications from 70 countries for the 100 places in the LL.M. program. As a result, we must exclude a great many highly-qualified applicants.

You are to be congratulated on your accomplishments, and I hope that you will be admitted at other law schools. If UC Berkeley School of Law remains your first choice you may wish to consider reapplying for the 2009-2010 academic year.

I am sorry that this letter must convey disappointing news. We appreciate your interest in the LL.M. program and wish you much success in continuing your studies and your career.

Sincerely,

John Yoo
Chair, Advanced Legal Studies Committee

Dear _______,

I write to inform you that after reviewing nearly 1000 applications from some 70 countries for the 2008-2009 academic year, the Advanced Legal Studies committee of the UC Berkeley School of Law has placed you on a waiting list pending the results of its initial round of admission offers.

Because of the very large number of highly-qualified applicants for the 100 places in our LL.M. program, it is not possible for us to offer admission to all those whom we would wish to have join us. In addition to the offers of admission made at this time, however, the Advanced Legal Studies Committee also designates several outstanding applicants for placement on the waiting list. Should any additional places in the program become available - and some do each year - applicants on the waiting list may then be offered admission.

Being placed on the Berkeley Law waiting list is evidence of the strong positive impression you made throughout our review process. While we are aware that you may have other admission offers from which to choose, we nevertheless hope you will remain on our list for as long as possible and that you will inform us if either your e-mail address or mailing address changes between now and June. The waiting list will be ranked in early-May and we will provide your quartile placement on the list if you contact us after that date.

If you wish to remain on the waiting list, please indicate your continuing interest by Monday, March 31, 2008 by 12noon Pacific Standard Time. If you have not already done so, we ask that you provide us with an updated email address and FAX number where we may reach you quickly in the event we need to do so.

We will advise you as soon as possible of the final admissions decisions. If you wish to withdraw your application from further consideration at this time, please inform us immediately.

I am sorry to have to convey such indefinite news. We were impressed with your application, however, and I hope that the state of uncertainty will not last long.

Sincerely,

John Yoo
Chair, Advanced Legal Studies Committee


Oh well, I will ask them to remove me. Already got a full tuition offer from Columbia.

Waitlisted also, anyone can tell us if Berkeley often give places to waitlisted people?

Someone who received admission will turn off their offer?
