    doesn't surprise me. a lot of factors do go into admissions, and they just don't heavily look into scores and grades necessarily, as just proven by the above link. committment, plus etc. is taken into account.

    Would I want to go to UC Berkeley?

    I'm perfectly happy with my road to unemployment at the University of Crackron

    I really didn't. Maybe, but I just don't know. Berkeley is kindof a trippy town

    I plan on going to Berkeley. It won't be anytime soon, though.

    I was rejected because I sent my application in two days after their Nov. 30 deadline (a month before any other college I applied to; and I hadn't even noticed), and they didn't even review it. It was (though this probably sounds obnoxious) intended as a "safety school" anyway, though, so I didn't really mind.

    admissions can be a real $$$$$, im applying next year for em, i meet those demographics they love..fatherless, low income, blah blah, in reality, it's all bull$$$$, you should get into college for your intelligence, not because of how many homeless people you can help out..that's just my opinion though

    Screw it, I'm going to college. My average isn't good enough because I spend too much time programming instead of studying. Oh well, i'm not too worried about not going to university, it's not what makes you successful... it's whether or not you can do your job.

    Ha! Good luck with that...

    Success has little to do with whether or not you can do your job;
    Success is based on who you know, and how much they like you.

    Screw Berzerkely, I want MIT.

    Not that I'd ever get in. *SIGH* Sometimes it hard living in a thrid world country where an education is not worth the paper it's printed on.

    Actually it's hard all the time living in a third world country.

    ARRRGGHHH! *Bangs head against desk*

    Probably the most I'll ever be able to do is make a pilgramige to MIT, and worship a bit at the site of Hacker's Mekka.

    Ahem.

    Orange anyone?
