Heard anything from Berkeley?

Postby WhatCanYouDoFermi? » Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:31 pm

Has anyone received confirmation that his/her application is complete?

Berkeley's website states:
"We intend to email applicants whether further materials are necessary or that their applications are complete by January 31st"

I realize that this post is a bit premature since it is only Jan 14, but like many of you I am nervous and impatient.

Your application is now complete and has been forwarded to our graduate admissions committee for review. Final decisions will be made by March 15, 2009.

Finally got mine on 1/16:

"Your application is complete, and you are being considered for
admission to the Ph.D. program in physics at the University of
California at Berkeley. We will notify applicants as they are admitted. Final decisions will
be made no later than March 15, 2009."

That's all of them!

Dear Applicant,

Thank you for submitting your application to UC Berkeley. You are receiving this email because our records show that one or more of your online letters of recommendation has not yet been submitted. Please log back in to your online application and check the status of your recommendations. If the status shows “saved”, you have saved the contact information, but have not notified your recommender. Please click on “notify by email” button for each recommender in order to send an automated email request.
If the status shows “notified” or “in process” your recommender has not completed the recommendation process. Please alert your recommender of this status and relay the following information:
There are the three steps a recommender must take in order to complete the recommendation process.

1. The recommender has the option of filling out a rating and ranking portion of the form.
2. The recommender must upload the document in either .doc, .txt, or .pdf format.
3. Once the letter of recommendation has been uploaded, the recommender must select the “Submit Recommendation” tab on the left hand side of the screen to choose the “Submit Letter” button which completes the recommendation process.

When successfully submitted, the recommender will receive an on-screen confirmation and his/her password and login will be automatically deactivated. The status of the recommendation portion of your application for graduate admission will change to “submitted”.

If your recommender submitted your recommendation directly to the department in paper form, disregard this message. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Best wishes,



Well, my recommenders submitted the letters in paper form, so should I ignore the e-mail? I still have not received any e-mail besides that one, so i am really anxious!

I haven't gotten anything since an email saying I had succesfully submitted my application on Dec. 17th. Should I be a little worried and send them an email yet?

I just got my confirmation late yesterday afternoon. I'd give them time - they say they'll notify applicants before the 31st.
