Dear applicant considering study as a graduate student, post-doc, or intern in UC Berkeley’s Computer Science Division,
Many faculty members at UC Berkeley receive a large number of letters and emails from prospective graduate students, post-docs, and (yikes) summer interns. Because of the volume of mail we receive, I offer this FAQ for prospective students and post-docs (adapted from one written by Doug Tygar). If you have written me, I will refer you to this note. I am sorry that I don’t have time to answer your inquiries individually.
Q: I’ve already been admitted. Does this FAQ apply to me?
A: No. If you’ve been admitted, congratulations! Admissions at Berkeley are highly competitive. If you’re good enough to earn admission, we want to treat you well and make sure we meet your needs for information and discussion about your research opportunities at Berkeley. If you’ve been admitted, I will certainly make time to answer your personal inquiries. Please don’t hesitate to call or send email.
