There is a fabulous new video on YouTube demonstrating how to use WebAdvisor to register for classes. This might be particularly helpful for new students. Here's the link:

Appealing an Admissions Decision

Many students have already received admissions notifications from the universities they have applied to, and UC Berkeley is expected to release admissions decisions on April 30. If you are denied admissions, you might want to appeal the decision if you can provide some new or additional information that was not included in your UC application. Here are some links to Berkeley, Los Angeles, and San Diego's websites with helpful information about appealing:


Los Angeles:

San Diego:
Please note that the San Diego link is for Transfer Student Services. No appeals information has been posted yet for Fall 2010 admissions, so contact TSS if you have a question about appealing an admissions decision.

For any other UC or university campus, contact the Undergraduate Admissions office for information about appealing a denial. Again, you can only appeal if you have new or additional information to provide that was not included in your original application.

Following is a link to a website with links to various university online resources on managing stress. Thanks to Mr. Nathan Grimm of the SR Education Group for sharing this link with me.
