Berkeley Early Admission Notification (Freshman Applicants)

Sounds like UC Berkeley made acceptance offers to a batch of freshman applicants yesterday (Wednesday, February 10, 2021). According to Berkeley’s February 9, 2021 issue of the Admissions Bulletin for Counselors:

Last year, just under 8 percent of our fall 2020 freshman admits were notified of their admission decision in February, the majority of whom were candidates for our Regents’ & Chancellor’s scholarship. The vast majority of freshman applicants will receive an admission decision on March 25, 2021.

Congratulations to those of you who were admitted! Those of you who haven’t heard, hang in there!

Did they send everyone the email letting them know about early admissions but letting them know they will hear in Mid March during the regular release? I thought they usually release at the end of March?

I don’t think the campus sent an email to all of the applicants. But I did read somewhere that MAP@Berkeley portal had a status update that showed freshman decisions will be released on or before March 25, 2021.

Berkeley has been releasing freshman decisions on the last Thursday of March for several years now. So the timing is consistent.
