  1. I had an underwhelming GPA in a difficult major from a top 10 but underrated public research university. I'm also in my late 30s - I've been thinking of grad/professional school for a long time, but I know it will be very challenging, and may not be worth it.For a while now, I'm been thinking of applying to the M.A. in Asian Studies at UC Berkeley and the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at University of San Francisco. I'd much prefer Asian American Studies, but very few schools offer an M.A. in that - the closest one seems to be UCLA, and I'd like to stay local and commute to school. There's an M

  3. Has anyone taken the UC Berkeley Journalism Writing Test? I am not as much worried for the interview, but I'm nervous about the exam? Anyone that took it in 2020 or earlier, what were the questions you had?
  4. Hey all, Since Berkeley's admissions info is super vague about when they're going to release their decisions, I just wanted to shout out into the void to see if perhaps anyone had heard anything? Would love to feel less desperate and alone! Had a great interview last month but since then it's been radio silence ? Thanks in advance --

  6. Hey everyone! I just wanted to connect with others who are also waiting for admission decisions for MSW programs; this process feels like it's taking forever! I applied to UC Berkeley, CSU East Bay, SF State, and am still working on SJSU. This is definitely nerve-wracking! Has anyone else applied and feels nervous????? Which programs did ya'll apply to??
  7. Hello! I've been accepted to UCLA and wait listed at UC Berkeley for the Masters in Social Welfare program beginning this Fall. I am over the moon but also a bit at a crossroads. It seems that near everyone I speak to have a strong lean toward UCB and I wonder how much of it is due to name recognition and prestige over the program itself or the potential fit it might be. UCB is the main reason I began to apply to graduate programs, but UCLA seems like it would potentially be a better fit. I am deadset on UCLA but am WELL aware that I might be thrown for a loop if I am offered admissi
  8. How is the application reviewed in the interview phase of EECS MS/PhD at UC Berkeley? If interviewed and accepted into the program, would the interviewer (by default) be the PhD supervisor? Or, is the student first accepted into the program and needs to find a research supervisor later? If the students are first accepted into the program and not by a specific advisor, how would funding be handled?

  11. Hello from Wurster Hall! UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design CED is now accepting applications to our immersive summer program - the Summer [IN]STITUTE in Environmental Design - for post-baccalaureates who are interested in pursuing graduate study in architecture or city planning but lack an academic background in those fields. Participants spend six intensive weeks at UC Berkeley testing their affinity for graduate work in the environmental design disciplines: honing visual representation skills, connecting with faculty and practitioners, developing presentation and c
  12. Hey everyone, I am a prospective graduate student for the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley ( Cal ). I am still waiting for an acceptance letter. I'm Speaking Acceptance Into Existence (i.e my user name ) Have you been accepted, rejected, still waiting? Any news on when your department will release decision letters? Lets Discuss! <3
  13. I got into UC Berkeley and Stanford Environmental Engineering MS program to study Water Resource Engineering. I'm not sure which to choose. Any opinions of pros and cons of each university for academics(course material) and campus life in general are appreciated! Where should I go?
  14. I applied to the Art History PhD programs at UC Berkeley and University of Toronto and I'm still waiting to get a response from the schools. I checked and saw that three people had posted about the UCB program and they all heard in late January/early February, so I am rather concerned that I am still waiting for a response over a month after the people who have posted. I saw that people who applied to UT began getting responses back in January and others have been receiving responses since then, but I'm still worried that I am still waiting to hear. Is anyone else still waiting to hear from Un
  15. Hi! I applied to UC Berkeley’s 2018 MSW/ Title IV-E program and had my interview on 1/25. I also applied to CSUEB’s program, but I don’t expect to hear back from them until much later. However, I’m anxiously waiting to hear back from Cal! I’m just reaching out to see who else has applied and wondering If they’ve heard back, how did your interview go? etc....
  16. Any Fall 2018 admits to the MIMS Fall 2018 program at UC, Berkeley?
  17. I applied for the EECS MS/PhD program of UC Berkeley for Fall 2018 in IC track. I got interviewed from my POI around the middle of the January, who is in the admission committee this year. He told me that I was on the top of the shortlist candidates. Although he asked me some challenging questions on my research, he said I did perfectly in the interview. From the past experience, candidates who receivced inteviews have great possibility of admission in the IC track and POI even confirm this while interviewing my classmates(we have two candidates received interview this year). I was t
  18. Hi folxs. After months of creeping on the forums I decided I couldn't take it anymore. Any UC Berkeley, MSW applicants on here? I received an email this morning about decisions rolling out between March 13-17th but I know there have been instances of even earlier decision notifications. The wait is sooo agonizing.
  19. I am currently applying to programs and wondered if mentioning my lower gpa (3.47) is worth it, particularly for Berkeley. I graduated seven years ago and have since gone on to work both overseas and locally with underserved populations in positions that I believe will help my application stand out (local government agencies, schools, and the Peace Corps + volunteer work). I also have a fairly unique future career interest and language skill that I hope will work for me in the application reading process. However, my undergrad (a double major in education and theology) is fairly spotty--bounci

  21. Hi. I'm planning to apply to clinical psychology PhD programs soon for Fall 2018 and I've decided to start on my personal statements. However, UC Berkeley's prompt (or rather multiple prompts) has me confused. On the psychology department's Application Instructions page and Berkeley's general Writing a Personal Statement page, it says to write a personal statement about... How you have overcome barriers to access in higher education. Evidence of how you have come to understand the barriers faced by others. Evidence of your academic service to advance equitable acc
  22. Hi All, I did a Masters in Berkeley in Statistics, fell in love with it, and am now applying for a PhD in Statistics. Would anyone be willing to read over my statement of purpose? What follows is my first draft, and I'm really not sure how to feel about it, so any comments are appreciated. Notes / Questions are in italic font. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Since I can remember people told me that the only people that amount to something are “practical” people: engi
  23. Greetings from Berkeley! The College of Environmental Design is now accepting applications for two immersive summer programs in City Planning and Urban Design through TUESDAY, JUNE 1. [IN]CITY is a cohort within the Summer [IN]STITUTE in Environmental Design that introduces students to the study and practice of urban planning through the lens of sustainability.

The program is designed to
  24. I am currently a PhD student at another UC school in the political science department. Not quite getting the institutional support I need for my research interests, so looking to transfer to Berkeley in order to (hopefully) get that support. Berkeley has a lot more faculty working in my area of interest. Is it worth the repeat of application pain to transfer? Any suggestions, insight, or tips would be greatly appreciated.
