hi folks

i'm a newbie/lurker here.

i see a lot of stuff on optometry school here, but i'd like to know if any UCB students can give insights on vision-science graduate-student-life at UCBSO? do the students seem to be enjoying their lives? do they seem to be miserable?

i have an interview coming up in March at the school, and just wanted to get an idea of what is the quality of life of the average grad student at UCBSO.

Are you asking about the non-clinical graduate science program? If so, you should have a good time. Berkeley's graduate program is well-established with many of the top faculty actively involved in research. If you look at their web site, the extramural funding is substantial. In addition, many graduate students have research foci that can span many departments. This is something of a holdover from the original faculty back in the 60's where the graduate faculty had joint appointments with Mechanical Engineering and Biophysics.
