I've been looking and haven't seen a group, but someone should go ahead and start one!

I wouldn't mind making an unofficial FB group just to connect, but I suspect it wouldn't be used for official info since no adcoms would be in it?

Edit: I'm not sure how I would verify that a person who requests to join was actually admitted to Berk.

You should get it going and share the link; I feel like most schools have one by now and one would only hope that only admitted students would want to join the group :)

Hi All!!! Admitted yesterday and checking in! Quick question: I am planning on attending the ASW, but I haven't received any info about that yet. I'm thinking of booking the planet ticket today since it is getting crazy expensive. Do you guys know if there are any restrictions on refund for airfare? Thanks so much in advance! :mrgreen:

They offer $150 for in-state airfare and $300 for out of state. Although, if you have a specific situation and need that amount increased, write to the admissions office and they can show some flexibility.

Also looking at tickets for asw and they are indeed getting pricey! How much more difficult is it to get to campus from the airport in SF (vs. Oakland)?

You can get from SFO to Berkeley via BART as well. It's pretty easy, just a larger ride on BART and you have to transfer once.

I was admitted yesterday and have not yet received log-in info for the student website. Is there a date by which I have to RSVP for the admitted student weekend??

Congrats on your acceptance! It doesn't say online but I imagine you can RSVP leading up to the event. I got my email within 5 days of my acceptance so yours should be coming soon

The RSVP is on the "Your Profile & Checklist" page. It says you can submit the form anytime before ASW, but if you submit after March 1, then you need to email as well.

Welcome to all the new admits! I updated the OP with the info that was recently sent out regarding ASW events. I hope this helps the new admits who don't have their logon info yet.

What ASW events are people planning on attending on Thursday evening, btw? So far I've gotten emails about the Women of Color Coalition's and the First Generation Professionals' dinners.

Going to WOCC on the first day, deciding between BHWA and BJIL for Friday, and Gender Journal picnic on Saturday.
