    Be prepared for the rigorous courses that you will endure. Make lots of friends who will become your family away from home. Explore different activities because there are so many things to try!

    Focus on community involvement. Seriously. A perfect grade history will not be your only ticket in. Cal is looking for students who are interesting shaping society in some way. They are looking for someone with drive and purpose. This means your personal statement and community experiences are vital. For example I believe the transfer GPA from community colleges this year was 3.2

    1) Be disciplined in your studies and ambitious with your goals. 2) Trust and cooperation within this tight-knit student community are invaluable mental tools for success. 3) Competition is high, so be creative and challenge every last personal boundary on your journey to get into this university and throughout the duration of your studies.

    Though it might be tempting to jump straight into as many classes as possible (especially since there are so many amazing offerings) there is nothing wrong with taking things slow the first semester. College is nothing like high school - courses are more rigorous, there's no one looking over your shoulder to make sure you go to class (which might sound nice, but trust me you don't want to miss a single class at Berkeley!), and sometimes your grade in a class might be determined by two or three assignments.

    Work your butt off in high school, and don't get senioritis. School does not stop when you are a senior in high school, so why stop trying? Keep yourself motivated and the transition to Berkeley rigor coursework is manageable.
