Revealed: Milo Yiannopoulos’s Berkeley rejection letter from 2007

We didn’t want you in 2007, and we don’t want you now

Milo Yiannopoulos applied to UC Berkeley ten years ago — and was rejected, as a newly leaked document shows.

The released documents were mailed to The Tab last night.

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions keeps record of all prospective student communication. Until now, Milo’s rejection letter has been filed away and unknown.

This presents an interesting development, especially in light of Milo’s announcement that he will return to speak at UC Berkeley, even after his last talk was canceled due to student protesting (adding insult to injury of his previous rejection).

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions has declined further comment on the matter.

The letter in full:

Dear Mr Yiannopoulos,

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions regrets to inform you that we cannot offer you a place at University of California, Berkeley, in the class of 2011.

We received over 60,000 applications this year, 5,000 more than last year. With that in mind, we can unfortunately only admit a small fraction of applicants through a very competitive reviewing process.

While your application was impressive, we ultimately decided that the sensitivity it displayed renders you unsuitable for the vigorous environment we foster here at UC Berkeley.

We are grateful for your interest in UC Berkeley, and wish you the best in your future endeavors.


Walter Robinson,
Director of Undergraduate Admissions
