I might call Berkeley today--in half an hour when it's 9 their time ;) I've been refreshing my status page all morning.

Good luck! I saw that result post as well...but it was from a phd applicant so I was thinking that ma decisions will come after...so many conflicting feelings! I want to know but I don't want to call...

Grad admissions office said on my app no decision has been made yet and that I could contact the Ed office directly...eesh! Do I want to do that??!?!?!

...edit: yeah, I called, and for SCS PhD, they should have the decisions today (likely even this morning!!!!!!) and will start emailing, though it could take 24-48 hours to get the email....

Can I just fast-forward through today please?!?

Wow, so it really did take this long?! Anyone have a guess if they'll notify MA's too?

Goodness, me! Good luck to everyone! We've really waited it out on this one.

Got antsy and called the office too. I applied to the Quant Methods/Evaluation program. The person over the phone asked for my name and it sounds like she was looking over a list of admits/denials to see if I was on the list. Of course they won't give decisions over the phone, but it sounds like they are uploading decisions onto the application site today. I don't think I'll get in, but it's just a relief to know that it will end soon. Good luck to everyone!

Aaaaarrrrgh!!! It's definitely been more than 24-48 hours and I still have no email from Berkeley and my status hasn't changed on the gradadmit page!!!!!! I've been refreshing and refreshing and refreshing all weekend. A bit dismaying, to say the least.

I'm with you. Can I ask if the office gave you the impression (or explicitly said) that the SCS decisions were just being made (or finalized) late last week, as in no SCS applicants have been given decisions, unlike most applicants to other UCB GSE programs?

Apologies for the double post, but it looks like another day is going to come and go before hearing a word. Really disappointed. Beginning to assume (since hope has held out until now, for me) this means the worst. Anyone else holding out hope?

@ dispositif, I'm with you. It is really tough to hold on to hope at this point. I would just like to know the decision (whatever it is) for sure so that I can move forward. With all of the different things that people have posted over the weeks, it seems like there might be a slim possibility that SCS decisions really have taken this long… hopefully we will know soon.

for those accepted into Ed PhD programs at UCs, do you mind sharing what your financial aid/funding is like? do you think it will be enough to survive in CA with it?

My status still has not changed. Very strange...

Called UCB's GSE today and was connected with someone who was very polite. She explained that the decisions had just been "sent off" and that I should expect an email tomorrow or Thursday. Good luck again, fellow SCS hopefuls!

Thanks for calling them. I really hope to get that email soon; I was obsessively checking and rechecking while I was out of town.

If it's possible to exhaust verizon's new standard iPhone/data plan by simply refreshing inbox and spam folders, I'll be able to tell you at the end of this month.

Absolute neurosis over here.

Just called the admissions coordinator at Berkeley and was told that decisions have been entered into the system already, and they should be notifying the applicants very soon.
