I'm not sure if mods will allow this to be pinned (perhaps we CAs are only a small number here?) Anyone knows?

I think this application cycle was the first time Berkeley notified a select number of applicants early even without extending the Regents scholarships invite. In the past, only those shortlisted for Regents were notified in mid Feb while others had to wait till 2nd-4th week of March.




The Ask Ms Sun Blog is a good place to gather more snippets as is College Confidential (UCB, UCLA).

My grapevine has informed me that this year, at least 3 freshman homeschooled applicants were accepted early to UCB and extended the invitation to interview for the Regents' and Chancellor's scholarships. Two are on these boards. :001_wub:
