5/13    ucla ee guy, did you get into USC? I applied to their PhD
        but was offered their MS program. I declined, how about you?
        \_ I got into MS. I didn't apply to PhD, mostly because a
           USC prof. who wrote me a letter of rec told me that it
           wasn't worth my time to do a PhD right now.
                \_ PhD is rarely financially sound. Having that
                   said I'm surprised that he gave you that advise.
                   Maybe he thinks that you're not a PhD material.
                   \_ Frankly I don't think I'm PhD material, but
                      some of my ex-bosses (Stanford Profs.) think
                      I could easily do it. Anyway, the USC prof.
                      advice was based on purely financial
                      considerations (I have some ISO options that
                      would lapse if I went on an extended loa which
                      would be required for a PhD but not a Masters).
           \_ so where are you going?
              \_ ucla

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),

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

9/30    My friend says Berkeley CS MS is reserved for Berkeley CS PhD
        rejects-- in another word if you kick ass and applied PhD but
        got rejected, they'll offer you the MS with the possibility of
        going into PhD. Is that a rumor or is that true? Any UCB grad
        student wanna confirm this?
        \_ The question is about Cal, but I believe this policy tends to

8/14    Stanford, MIT, and pretty much all the other UCs have a 1 year MS
        program upon satisfactory completion of your EECS degree (and they
        don't even have to take the GRE). How come Berkeley has no such
        program?   -junior/senior now regretting coming to Berkeley
        \_ Because UCB doesn't give a shit about you at all and only 'teaches'
           undergraduate courses because they're required to by the state?

4/6     Has anyone gotten anything from Stanford and USC?
        \_ An ex-girlfriend and some books from Stanford, but somehow I
           doubt that's what you meant.
           \_ I'm pretty sure he means the college applications
                \_ oh, you think?
                   \_ No.  I think he was asking about STDs.

4/8     In Stanford, there is a clause that says something like "if you get
        into the MS program, you will not be able to apply to our PhD
        program." Is there such a clause in UCLA?

3/6     speaking of grad school... how does the stanford HCP work?
        what does it take to get in? do the companies in their SCPD
        program generally pay for all your tuition?
        \_ What does Stanford HCP have to do with graduate school?
           \_ you can do a masters or phd at the farm via hcp.
        \_ Supposedly, you apply just like any other student.  So

8/30    I'm considering taking a GRE prep course from either Princeton
        Review or Kaplan. Any thoughts on which one is better? I'm
        looking to move my score up from ~ 2000 to ~ 2200. Analytical
        was my weakest section.
            \_ dude, don't take a GRE course.  the analytical, you just
               have to practice.  it's normal to have a bad
