Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
Ok soo I called Berkeley and they said that the quartile aren’t ready but will come sometime in the next two weeks :/
not two weeks 😭
thank you for the update!
circling back to ask what date you called berkeley for the quartile rankng update, should've written it down
i'm not that person but someone on reddit commented that they called berk and adcomms said they're hoping to release the rankings by the end of this week
thank you!
so clearly that was a lie
berkeley quartiles are out
I just wish they gave more context about the quartiles
okay so it was not a lie
sorry i doubted you kristin
yeah the email says "many people have questions about what their quartile ranking means, see the below Q&A" and then doesn't mention the quartile rankings in the Q&A at all
i'm in 2nd but i'm on the east coast so i don't know how long i'm really willing to wait
@reprobaddie4: literally hahahah
@CowardlyLittleCrane: Same, for me, 2nd is about the worst thing that could've happened. If it was 3rd or 4th, I would've pulled myself because of the low chance. If it was 1st, I would've gave myself a little hope.
do we think all seats have been filled?
@Karatekid15001: same boat!!
