Sounds like UC Berkeley made acceptance offers to some freshman applicants today (Friday, February 11, 2022). Check your MAP@Berkeley portal to see if your decision is available.
According to Berkeley’s January 21, 2022 issue of the Admissions Bulletin for Counselors:
In the coming weeks, a select number of students will be notified that they have been admitted to UC Berkeley, most of whom will be candidates for the Regents’ and Chancellor’s scholarship or admits to other special programs.
Most students will receive their decision during our normal release period – March 24th for freshman applicants and April 22nd for transfer applicants. If your student doesn’t hear from us in the next few weeks, please inform them that no decision has yet been made and they are still in the review process.
The “special programs” mentioned generally refer to MET, GMP, and the dual degree programs (Sciences Po and University of Hong Kong).
Berkeley also provided admit numbers for early notification in the May 2022 Annual Report on Undergraduate Admissions Requirements and Comprehensive Review:
For fall 2021, about 950 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!
