Please note: Your receipt of this email is in no way an indication of
acceptance to the UC system. This message has been sent to you regardless
of your admissions status or eligibility for the Alumni Leadership

Application Deadline: RECEIVED by February 14, 2004

What I need to do to get the scholarship: Write a description of up to three activities from the last four years in which you demonstrated significant leadership. Explain in detail what you did, what was accomplished and how your leadership made a difference. Submit your description on two pages maximum of white paper, preferably typed. At the top of each page, print your full legal name, social security number, birthdate, school name and College Board school code.

I suppose I could use it... problem is, do I want to take the bother if I don't know if I'll be accepted yet?

It depends how much of a difference the money would make if you did go there.  Is Berkeley especially expensive or is this particular scholarship worth a lot?  I guess it also depends on what else you'd be doing with the time it takes to write your essay (for example, schoolwork, if you still care about grades at this point.. second semester?).
