Should Berkeley Worry It Rejects 'Normal Students'?

January 22, 2015

In discussing a new committee to examine the finances of the University of California, Governor Jerry Brown has raised a new issue for consideration, whether "normal students" can get into the University of California at Berkeley, Capital Public Radio reported. In discussing the committee, he expressed concern over Berkeley's extremely competitive admissions. "You got your foreign students and you got your 4.0 folks," he said. "But just the kind of ordinary, normal students, you know they got good grades but weren’t at the top of the heap there, they’re getting frozen out."
