2/12    How do I apply to Berkeley's CS Masters program as an undergrad?
        \_ Fill out the forms and turn them in.
           \_ No I mean most schools like MIT, Stanford, UCLA, UCSD, UCI,
              etc etc allow their undergrads to fill out an application
              and apply to their MS program directly without the trouble of
              of taking the GRE and letter of recommendations, assuming
              the've met the GPA requirements. I can't find such info on
              the website.
              \_ Berkeley doesn't tend to do this.  Most departments prefer
                 to accept candidates who have experienced more diverse
                 educational upbringing, i.e. gone away to other institutions.
                 Not to say they'll turn you down, I just wouldn't expect
                 there to be any easy way in, apart from the fact that maybe
                 you know your professors here and can get letters of rec
                 with better influence.
                 \_ This is correct. I have never heard of a Berkeley student
                    getting sweethearted into the graduate school in the way
                    of the other schools you mention (most notoriously MIT).
                    You go back into the general pool and pretty much go the
                    way everybody else does. If you have a relationship with a
                    prof already, it will help, but that's true anywhere.
                    \_ In fact, it is *more* difficult to get in to Berkeley
                       (PhD anyway) as a Berkeley undergrad. Not only does
                       your "general pool" stuff have to be acceptable, but
                       a professor has to want you here. I know a guy in
                       physics who got into MIT, Caltech, Princeton, Chicago,
                       and Berkeley (and one other I am forgetting, but he
                       applied to the Top Six) who was most shocked that he
                       got into Cal because of this fact.
                \_ wasn't there a honors program from eecs where one can go
                   on to a masters in eecs (required at least 3.7 gpa) ?

12/20   Question to people in industry: I'm a transfer student, which
        means I can take an extra semester to graduate. I will have met
        all the requirements to graduate in May, but already have an
        internship lined up for the summer and was planning to use the
        semester afterward to take some courses I haven't had a chance
        to yet (graphics, distributed systems (if they add the course),

9/23    I'm in grad school part time, and the professor I was trying to get
        to advise me just sent me "What you suggest (remote, part-time, topic
        formulation) doesn't fit my advising style..."  Does anyone know
        what "topic formulation" might mean in this context?  I come with
        funding from work, but the topics I can choose are somewhat limited.
        Could be a reference to that...

2/2     Is there a PC application for creating movies, which is sort of
        similar to iMovie (in terms of simplicity and power)? Thanks.
        \_ MS MovieMaker is free but doesn't meet your requirements.
        \_ Adobe Premier
        \_ Sony Vegas.  stay away from Pinnacle, I've seen some real badnes.
