3/20    Anyone gotten a letter from UCLA or USC? I've gotten all the
        rejections/acceptance except these two... getting anxious now.
        \_ I recieved my UCLA acceptance almost 3 weeks ago. USC CS
           said that they wouldn't have anything till April (I called
           the dept. last week). It doesn't matter to me, since I've
           decided to go to UCLA.
           BTW, Have you been accepted anywhere?
                \_ yes I did, but they're not on US News' CS list (but are
                   for the general engineering ranking), so I'm rather
                   embarrased about posting them here... thanks for your
                   response, I guess I'm not going to UCLA      -orig poster
                   \_ Yes they are.
                   \_ I applied EE. CS might not be out yet. Hope springs
                        \_ CS is out.
                        \_ EE PhD or MS? If I had known that the # of
                           applications trippled this year I wouldn've applied
                           as a junior (and would still have a better
                           chance). Now I sux   -orig poster
                           \_ MS. I'm not smart enough to do a PhD.

8/3     Berkeley now ranks 70, while UCLA ranks 50. Williams College
        is #1.
        \_ Forbes hates public education. A less ideologically biased ranking
           has Berkeley at 22 (which is still a fall from the golden years):

2/4     UCB 19th in private donations for 2009 behind #1 Stanford and #9 UCLA. (LA Times)
        List of Top 20: (Wall Street Journal)
        \_ advice to UCB fundraiser committee: Ask not how you can
           get more donations. Ask why you are not getting donations.
        \_ why the fuck should i donate to a place that told me my undergrad

        UCLA is ranked above Berkeley. UCSD is ranked above
        Berkeley. Irvine is ranked one below Berkeley.
        Berkeley has seriously gone done in the past
        two decades. I'm not surprised.
        \_ These aren't "best schools" these are "best value" rankings.

9/26    Cal vs. Oregon:  Were you surprised? </sarcasm>
        \_ I was not surprised the Oregon scored 42 points. I was surprised
        \_ I was not surprised that Oregon scored 42 points. I was surprised
           that Cal only scored 3.
        \_ Not surprised they lost. Surprised at what a thorough ass-kicking it
           was on both sides of the ball. Cal couldn't even put up a TD.

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...

2/8     Why does UC suck so hard? I did undergrad at UCB and I hated it.
        Professors couldn't teach, class workload was high, and the system
        was designed to "weed out" students and demoralize them rather
        than teach and encourage them. I always got lower grades than I
        deserved for the amount of work I put in. I don't know if this was
        because of the curve which insists that 50% of students should get
