Uc Berkeley visit on the BART


I am interested in meeting with the admissions office at Berkely as a prospective student. I'll be in San Francisco (either near the marina district or staying in chinatown). How long does it take to get to the campus on the BART? I hope its a pretty relatively easy trek. Also, depending on my hotel, would it be easier to start out from the marina district or chinatown/north beach?

Welcome and good school choice - GO BEARS! anyway, i commute from teh city to Oakland every day, takes about 25 minutes and the same would be for your ride to Berkeley, I'd hop on the BART at Powell or Montgomery if you are staying in China town -- if Marina, gosh why would anyone stay in the Marina, then your commute time will be longer and involve a bus ride.

Easy trek: check out Barts webpage: www.bart.gov

Good luck!
