QuestionI was also wondering why UC Berkeley would waitlist someone with those stats. Perhaps to make sure all the whites get in first before letting blacks in?

That reminds me of the Rule Of Three that I learned in African American studies class: back in the early 20's, white officials would hire a white person who scored second or third, over a black who scored FIRST place, for a government job. And when a black was hired, it was usually unskilled job, thus perpetrating the idea that blacks can only do menial jobs.

I read in another interview that he is unsure between pre-law or pre-medSmile



eta: I guess he got no scholarships... he created a page asking for donations to pay for his tuition

STUDENT PROFILE

Be excellent.

Becoming a Golden Bear requires more than a test score. To “be Berkeley” requires persistence. And passion. And a desire to give back. It doesn’t matter whether you’re the first in your family to attend college or you’re the latest in a long tradition of educational excellence: You stand up and you stand out.

Keep in mind that UC Berkeley receives far more applications than it can admit. Consequently, to gain admission, you need to present an academic profile much stronger than that represented by the minimum University of California admissionrequirements.

What we look for in Berkeley students

Here at UC Berkeley we conduct what is known as holistic review. That means, we review each application in its entirety, word by word, page by page. We literally hug your application!

While grades and test scores are important and our applicant pool is highly competitive, we read each application individually—looking beyond the numbers—for students who can add to the extraordinary educational atmosphere at Berkeley.

Start your application early and distinguish yourself by writing about your own experience in a way that sets you apart from other applicants.
