I wasn't the excited student coming into Berkeley, now I
can't say how much I've been blessed to have gone
there. The students are top notch and the professors really
know their stuff. As with any university, you have your
batch of anti-social classmates and teachers. The only downside to
Berkeley is that you rarely get individual attention since the
average class size is so large and the bureacracy is
well embedded. Still, if you set your mind to it
and have initiative, there's no limit to what you can
achieve or learn. I've been amazed not only by the
diversity of friends I've made, but by what they have
been able to achieve since graduation. Everywhere I go, the
Berkeley name speaks for itself, and in many cases, garners
me more respect than I think I deserve. I can
proudly say, now I realize why Berkeley sends more of
its students on to grad school than any other school
in the nation.
In retrospect, I wish I had taken
more time to get to know my professors, ie, go
to office hours more. I also wish I had pursued
High school students should be able to read
and write well. It's essential that you develop your reading
comprehension and communication skills if you want to succeed at
Cal without having to do a lot of extra work
on the side. If you have an attitude, lose it.
There's always gonna be someone smarter than you at Cal.
And lastly, enjoy your summer before freshmen year. Because it
may be the last carefree summer you'll have!
