PMB Interview Weekend

Applicants who have been selected for an interview and are interested in coming to UC Berkeley are required to attend these interview weekend of events.  Although we cannot guarantee an alternate interview date, PMB will look into making alternate arrangements for students that have significant prior commitments that cannot be moved. If there is a conflict with another program’s visit date, please make sure to check with the other school on whether they have multiple visit options prior to  committing to your visit date.  An Interview Prep Workshop will also be held to provide applicants who are invited for interviews with questions, tips, and general structure of interview day. The workshop is held in mid-January before interview week. Details are provided in the invitation sent in December.

Mid February

Final decisions are made

Shortly after the interview weekend, the admissions committee will reconvene and  make final admissions decisions. All interviewees will be notified of their admissions status as soon as  possible.

Mid March

Experience Diversity

Admitted students are encouraged to visit and attend Experience Diversity hosted by the Office of Graduate Diversity for virtual and in-person events. More details to follow.
