Berkeley Ball-Bustin’: Round 2

Failure [1]

Yesterday, Apr. 30, after an absurdly long wait, UC Berkeley transfer applicants everywhere finally received the big news. Over a month after those obsessive-compulsive, overachieving upstarts [2] known as future freshmen got their decisions, transfer applicants finally got their just desserts in the form of tasty hunks of Berkeley acceptance. Well–either that or they had an extra month to get their hopes up, only to end up tasting the bitter fruits of rejection, some for the second time around.

So, what we’re trying to say is now might be a good time to call your BFF back home to see what’s what. And you might want to have your sympathy voice ready, because according to a transfer admissions FAQ [3], usually about 2 in 3 transfer applicants get the shaft. Ouch. Though, to be fair, those odds are better than the very general estimate for freshman applicants–3 in 4 applicants receive a “nix.”
