Pixar?

How closely does UC Berkeley associate themselves with Pixar? I have heard that Berkley has a partnership with Disney. Does going to this school actually have an impact on getting a job offer? I have done my research and it looks like there is a solid connection, can any graduates confirm this for me?

Thank you.

Pixar recruits about 7% of it's workforce from Berkeley. About twice that number from San Jose State. So while it's a big number it's not something you can bank on since there are many colleges in CA that offer a degree in animation like USC, UCLA, Cal Arts, Art Center etc.
