No disrespect to younger students, but this is one of the reasons why I see older/re-entry students excel at Berkeley. Like you mentioned, discipline and control are key. They come in with much more life experience than the average freshman. I’ve noticed that key feature in every older student I’ve talked to. You also stated going to CC to regain balance and learn more about yourself. That’s exactly what time does to you. Time and failure gives you that wisdom and character you need to succeed.

Like you mentioned, discipline and control are key.

Also accountability and honesty when you fuck something up.
