Equal Access to Application Assistance Program

The student-run Equal Access Assistance (EAAA) program aims to ensure that all applicants to higher degree programs (MS/PhD) at Berkeley's EECS Department have access to guidance on the higher degree application process. One current (or recent graduate) in EECS will provide feedback on your statement of purpose, personal history statement, CV/resume, and other application materials in advance of higher-degree application deadlines in fall semester.  This feedback will be Berkeley- and admissions-focused, as opposed to grammar or formatting advice.

Application for admission to UC Berkeley's EECS Department is a process that must be completed separately; participation in EAAA does not guarantee admission nor affect the admissions decision-making process in any way. 

The application for the current cycle has closed.
