Editors’ Note: Admissions Issue 2017

Xinyu Li/Staff

Welcome, newly admitted students!

You may not know this, but every single student here at UC Berkeley applied and got accepted just like you! We worked our little butts off in high school, just like you, and wrote our hearts out in personal essays, just like you. But there’s just one major difference between y’all and us, dear newly admitted students: We took the leap and decided to attend this most hallowed institution.

It’s certainly not an easy road to trek, but we hope you join us in calling UC Berkeley home.

Peace, love, Clog.
