Chicago troll cannot be more obvious lol. “ quant sociology from HYP ( p not equal to penn) , area is linear regression method in behavioral economics”... but I anxiously checked my inbox and application portal nonetheless
I don't understand why some people do troll on grad cafe. What's the point especially if the results are anonymous? Are those guy totally desperate of their lives? Really need those anonymous false results to satisfy their ego smh? Boring and pathetic. The Chicago one really is disrupting. Anyway Good luck to everyone else in their applications.
I was one of the Berkeley posters on GC. I received an email notice there was an update to my application, clicked the link, and had a letter of admission from the Vice Provost of Graduate Studies. It seemed to be a school-wide form letter, and said the department would follow up later with details on funding.
The acceptance appeared to me a little unusual, as the update came around 7-ish PST, well after business hours, with no separate acknowledgment from the department or faculty (which to my knowledge is standard). You guys are correct that last year, most UCs released decisions uniformly around March 8th.
Given the low number of posts on GC, (especially relative to the number who posted their acceptances to Stanford, of which I would assume there would be overlap) my intuition is that either this is a mistake, or they might be admitting in batches. At any rate, I would definitely not take the lack of an update to be an implicit rejection.
