When your name reaches the top of the list, this means that you will be next so make sure to have your UC Berkeley email account open. As soon as an advisor is available, you will receive an email from a Data Science Advisor with a link to join your online Google Hangouts or Zoom session and your name will disappear from the queue around the same time. Join your Google Hangouts or Zoom session within 5 minutes of receiving the email.

You will not be able to sign in if drop-in hours have not started or have already ended. Sign-ins may end early if the waiting list is already too long for advisors to see all waiting students. For staff drop-in hours, we will make our best effort to contact all students who sign in on time.
