8/31    Someone please post the URL that says Berkeley has a MS CS program?
        I looked all over the grad site and no where does it indicate
        a MS CS program. MS EE, yes, but not MS CS

8/31    What are the advantage and disadvantages of being a T.A. vs. an R.A.?
        I've heard that R.A.s have more flexibility and is better. What
        is your view?
        \_ at first I thought you meant RA as in one of the ResHall people.
           if you think you could be a good TA, be a TA.  It's more rewarding.
        \_ In my program, an RA-ship allowed you to work on your thesis and
           receive a stipend. A TA-ship, while rewarding, detracts from the
           time you can put into your thesis. If you are planning to take a
           long time to complete your thesis, an RA-ship may be the better
           deal since teaching is valuable experience. -ulysses

8/31   In general what GRE scores do you need to get into Berkeley Grad School
       in CS? Any recommendations for getting in?
       \_ Master's or PhDs?
        \_ I knew someone who got a MS CS from Cal. He had just below a 3.5
           and his GRE's were unremarkable. His Secret: worked with a prof as
           an undergrad and the prof wanted him to finish the project that he
           had spent the past year and half working on. Nick, you didn't have
           a great GPA as an undergrad, right?
           \_ you dumb fuck, there is no MS CS in Berkeley. Only MS EE.
              \_ Actually, there's a whole lot of M$ CS going around.
                \_ Jedi Mind Trick the profs, and admission is easy. -nweaver
                   \_ "Ha ha ha!  Your Jedi mind tricks do not work on me,
                      boy. -bh"
                      \_ foo:

Never logged in.
           \_ this is for a friend (someone who didn't go to Cal undergrad).
              \_ I heard it's easier for MIT or $tanfurd undergrad to get
                 into Cal grad than for Cal undergrad.  --- yuen
                 \_ not true. knowing a prof is the easiest way.
                    \_ in another word, you're claiming that you don't have
                        to be smart, just a sycophantic jerk?
                        \_ Yeah, like talg.
                           \_ You mean a total kissass fuck who didn't even
                              take any real classes at Cal?  Did he even
                              make sense with his 263 proposal?
                                                     \_ How did you read
                                                        this? Can I find it
                          \_ Is the history of the talg squabble available
                             somewhere? This is almost as intriguing as the
                             bitter divorced guy...
