UC Berkeley sent acceptance offers to some freshman applicants this afternoon (Friday, February 9, 2024). If you are unsure, check your MAP@Berkeley portal to see if your decision is available.
Update: An email went out on 2/10/2024 to freshman applicants who did NOT receive an acceptance offer on 2/9/204 stating that “decisions will be released approximately late afternoon / early evening (Pacific time) on March 28, 2024, via the MAP@Berkeley portal.”
According to Berkeley’s Application FAQs:
… a small number of students will receive notification of their decision in February. Most of these students will be nominees for Regents’ and Chancellor’s Scholarships, a process that has traditionally been initiated during this time of year … majority of first-year applicants still will receive their decisions at the end of March, via the MAP@Berkeley portal.
Berkeley provided Fall 2022 early notification admit numbers in the June 2023 Annual Report on Undergraduate Admissions Requirements and Comprehensive Review:
For the seventh year, Berkeley released a small number of admission decisions in February. For fall 2022, about 1,350 applicants were admitted; these include applicants chosen to interview for the Regents’ and Chancellor’s Scholarship, as well as admitted to the College of Engineering’s Management, Entrepreneurship & Technology (MET) program, Sciences Po Dual Degree program, and a small number of recruited athletes.
Congratulations to those of you who were admitted! Those of you who haven’t heard, hang in there!
