Anyone know whether the non refundable deposit will be applied towards tuition fees or something eventually?

Yes; it'll go towards your first semester fees.

So I'm in the EWMBA '19 intake, and am planning on moving there in July. My company has an office in Palo Alto, but I'd like to find a place close to campus because I can work 2-3 days a week from home. Anyone have recommendations on areas in Berkeley to avoid? I've heard People's Park is not a great area, but am wondering if that means theft/break-ins or something more serious. Looking at the crime maps, there's a lot of activity but I'm thinking that just may be the by-product of a lot of students/people around. Which places would you not feel safe walking around (as a male) at night? Thanks in advance.

People's Park is on Haste and Telegraph, which is two to three blocks away from the campus (Telegraph / Bancroft). It is very close to other main UC Berkeley undergrad dorms, such as Unit 1 and Unit 2. This is considered "Southside of Berkeley" and is closer to restaurants in the area called "Asian Ghetto," RSF (Berekley Gym), and college bars. You will be ok walking at night time - Berkeley also offers "BearWalk" (you might want to double check - they used to while i was in undergrad) for students and also UCPD regularly patrols around the campus & Berkeley PD patrols Telegraph / People's Park frequently. I used to walk by People's Park every day and I was fine (male). People have a perception of Oakland being very unsafe, but around the campus and proximity, you should feel safe and will be fine. I even walked around in Oakland with friends (50th-40th street all the way on Telegraph) on Friday / Saturday nights for dinner and drinks.

If you want to live close to Berkeley Haas - northside Berkeley would work. Northside is quieter than Southside. Just note that Berkeley Haas is also situated next to Frat row and Football Stadium, so you will see drunk college students and alumni on Saturdays in the AM and PM.

If you want to stay a bit away from Haas, a few options:

Downtown Berkeley (Shattuck / MLK) - lots of restaurants, bars, lively
Ashby (a station way from Berkeley) - don't know much but definitely close and can bike to campus

PM me if you need more information. Good luck with the move.

Thank you - this is very useful and helps a lot. The Bearwalk and PD patrols are good to know - doesn't seem like it'll be a big deal then. I actually used to live in Oakland/Temescal for a year or so and didn't feel that area was too unsafe (though I wouldn't walk around every night). Much appreciated.

Does Haas conduct background checks on EWMBA admits? Has anyone here received requests from one of the background check companies working with Haas?

I did not complete application before the final deadline. However, I received a email directly from an admissions director asking if I was still interested in the program and wish to be a late consideration candidate.

Does everyone receive this invite? Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone,

I had applied for EWMBA at Haas (Round 4). Already done with the interview but haven't heard back anything after that. Anyone else who heard back on the result, or any timeline on when Haas lets the applicants know about the decision (before the last decision date for that particular round)?

I don't think the people's park thing is that big a deal. Yes a guy got shot there a couple weeks ago but it was targeted, same dude shot a guy in emeryville and in soma/mission(?) that day. The palo alto commute is rough, if I were you I'd try and stay as south as possible, as it takes quite a while to get to north berkeley at rush hour. My gf commutes to the ~south bay and we're looking for something newer in downtown berkeley, south berkeley, and north oakland. West Berkeley has some great stuff but it's only a good location if you work in the city.


Does anyone know if we can change our class schedule? Like if I want to switch a core class or add a 1 hour class from the academic calendar it looks like I can do that starting a week before class? Academic adviser hasn't been really helpful so far =(

Your cohort and Fall 2019 course information will be released on 6/28. Classes will be assigned to each cohort by mid July, according to EWMBA website. You will have to discuss class changes with your academic adviser, but given that we haven't had the orientation yet, I'd suggest you to wait. Back when I was at Cal for undergrad, we were able to change classes even after classes began. I wouldn't see why you wouldn't be able to adjust your schedule, especially for a program tailored towards working professionals.

I am still waiting for a decision and I believe that they release the decision for the Round 3 and Round 4 at one time which is May 31st.
