    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.
    The hero we needed. Thanks friend, and congrats!

    To those with acceptances, remember to post on the stickied Admissions & Rejections post. It'll go a long way to keep this culture alive for the following years.

    Has anyone heard anything back from Emory? It seems that some applicants got an interview invitation.

    Huge congrats! Do you mind sharing which letter does your surname start with? I wonder if they are sending out admits in alphabetical order.

    I was one of the posters on GC. Maybe it's just early round.

    Anyone heard from Penn State? There are less posts on GC than previous years.

    I was the poster on GC today. E-mail received this morning.

    Received an offer from Berkeley Agricultural and Resource Economics (ARE) yesterday (already posted on GC)! Fully funded and nominated for fellowship. It seems most offers may come next week as they said next week there will be a follow-up email from the first year students advisor. Campus visit for ARE is March 20 (Fri). Good luck, everyone!
