By Invisible (Invisible) on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 - 03:15 am: Edit

Couple weeks ago UCB called and asked me stuff about financial aid, top choices, etc. Didn't think much of it...but they called again today. Same questions but they threw in, will you move to our dorms if you're accepted? Which is a dumb question, really, since I live in So Cal...kinda surprised me so I didn't have a chance to ask them. I think I'm probably borderline or something...any ideas or similar calls?

No one? My worry grows...

Wow, sounds like you're in. I don't know of anyone else who got a call like that (dorms).

OH MY GOD.I got the same call.Did your person ask you about majors and whatnot? Mine kept on saying "Make sure you come to Cal weekend", "bring some gloves" etc. I also didn't think much of it, but I guess its at least good? I meanit sounded pretty routine. Well, we're on their lsit so at least we know they're considering us?

DOes anyone know?

What were your stats?

By Serdu (Serdu) on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 - 07:01 pm: Edit

Wait, does anyone know if this means anything?

That is real weird, what does this mean and how many people got this?

By Serdu (Serdu) on Tuesday, March 23, 2004 - 07:18 pm: Edit

That's what I'd like to know....

are the only people getting these phone calls the ones eligible for financial aid? I'm not eligible, so I am wondering if they are still going to call me...

By Invisible (Invisible) on Wednesday, March 24, 2004 - 01:04 am: Edit

Ahhh! YES! She asked about my major and I vaguely remember something about gloves and a weekend!! I did some research (google)...and they usually call URMs to encourage them to consider their school...but there were some white kids in my school who got the call too, so now I'm thoroughly confused.

Isn't anyone curious about why they're telling you to bring gloves?

By Invisible (Invisible) on Wednesday, March 24, 2004 - 01:38 am: Edit

Yea, I sure am curious. Couple of people I know in Cal (Regent's, full ride, etc) never got this call last year. But hopefully its a good thing!

By John2004 (John2004) on Wednesday, March 24, 2004 - 01:40 am: Edit

If you have to bring gloves, I have a feeling you might do some type of activity during Cal Weekend...maybe help plant some trees? lol

I got a phone call also, about 3 months ago, and they asked if I wanted scholarship information, and then they asked me what were my top three college choices. Of course I said Berkeley as my first!lol. Berkeley is my top choice now anyway.
