One of my more difficult times here at Berkeley is dealing with ….graduation.
I’m a senior finishing up my last semester. The count down is fast, 3.5 more months till I can call myself a Berkeley Alumni. Exciting, yet still uncertain, I’m faced with new challenges that cannot be solved by hours of studying or attending office hours with my professors. Should I get a full time job, apply for grad school, or take a break and travel? If I had unlimited funds I’d do the latter, but my practical side pushed me to apply for grad schools. As I am still eagerly awaiting for responses, my best advice to myself and to future ‘08 graduates is to breathe and take a break! Sometimes I feel like my GPA doesn’t matter that much, but to say that your classes aren’t important would get me in trouble. Enjoy the free time, don’t fight senioritis so much, and worry about your choice of school when the acceptance letters come. But for now, spend those precious months with your friends and make some memorable Berkeley moments exploring the area. I have my checklist of things to do before I graduate, so enjoy your last few undergrad months while it lasts!
