Its pretty easy to get around using the BART system, just be aware that there can be fairly long waits between trains at certain times of day (and they don't run 24/7 either).


NYC does not usually have this issues (unless there is a snow day or a heavy rain) :)

How long does it take to get to SF and from SF to the airport? I was thinking to walk around a bit before my flight back.


Berkeley to SF is about 15-20 minutes depending on where you want to go. Berkeley's about a 5 minute drive (sometimes less) to the Bay Bridge and once you cross you're in the city by the bay! SF to the airport is about 15-20 minutes I'd say. SFO is in south san francisco; your trip would go something like this: Berkeley --> Cross Bay Bridge --> Arrive in SF/Downtown -->Pass through Daly City/Pacifica --> Arrive in South City/SFO :D


Thanks!

I'm already in town and took a look around yesterday. Looking forward to seeing the rest of you on Friday!

The airport is about a full 40 mins or so from Berkeley/Oakland. And it's not in the city itself. Like the previous poster said, it's out in the Millbrae area, past South San Francisco. You have to hop on the 101 to get there from the city, and at certain times of the day, the traffic can be pretty heavy. I wouldn't suggest hanging out in the city before your flight unless you have a LOT of time to kill. It's not really close enough to the airport to hang out and then just catch your flight.

Congrats on being admitted and enjoy ASW!

Never thought I'd say this - but Berkeley REALLY needs to take pointers from UCLA and restructure their ASW...(ie: more organization, SIGNS, a master of ceremonies for the events).

the mock class teacher was excellent though...food was good...people said the bar review was fun...besides that - boring.

Thanks! I'm not too disappointed I missed it then.
