Berkeley EECS

I called on Friday and they told me that they plan to send out decisions this week....

Has anyone heard from Berkeley in the past two weeks? Does anyone know through communication with a faculty or admission office when we should be expecting to hear from them?

I think it's over for berkeley... This is a post from a professor at Berkeley:

Good find. Still I feel like I haven't seen enough interviews/admits for EE on gradcafe thread (I saw more CS interviews than EE while we know Berkeley EECS admits more EEs than CS) but maybe it's just me trying to stay hopeful..... hopefully the decisions will finally come out this week. Good luck to all of you for Berkeley and everywhere else.

Look at the overall trend of decisions from last year, it followed a similar pattern. I doubt we'll get in at this point. Do you have any reasoning other than the low number of acceptances? Did you previously have an interview? (cause I haven't :/)

But again, I hope I'm wrong. :D

Well last year rejects came out sooner (but admits were around the same time as this year, early Feb). All of us have been F5ing gradcafe thread non-stop so correct me if I am wrong but I have seen ~20 MIT EECS admits and >30 Stanford EE admits (PhD and MS) but <10 Berkeley EE (not CS) admits (I think usually MIT and Berkeley have similar admission quota and Stan is a little higher).

I was not interviewed but unless things have changed from last year, not all Cal EE admits are interviewed. I emailed gradadmission@berkeley twice after the first wave (or only wave as you claim) of admits and asked about the decision on my application and they replied that there has been no decision yet (last time was Thursday).

All that said, chances are you are right. I guess my resume is not attractive to bay area elitists so I better stay at my east coast MS institution and get a hassle-free PhD.

Hmm... that does make me a bit more hopeful... good luck to all!

I found someone's message on a website saying that he or she called to Berkeley last week and was told most of decisions would come out this week including rest of offers and ADs and some rejections. I checked my status everyday...nothing happened o(>﹏<)o ╮(╯_╰)╭ (╯﹏╰)

"Rest of offers" huh? This is more and more a roller coaster. Maybe I should just drive over to Berkeley and tell them to tell me.

Also, how do interviews play into this? Like, if I didn't interview, is that just bad news?

3200+ applicants for 100 spaces! I mean the first wave was in early this month and 'rest of offers' should be the second wave??? Absolutely not sure.

What is the TRUTH?
