For seniors, this time of the year is one that requires patience and instills both relief and anxiety. Relief comes from the fact that college applications have been submitted and seniors no longer need to stress over the laborious and repetitive admissions process, while anxiety comes from the fact that they now have to wait for acceptance letters which may very well determine the substance of their future lives.
"Yea, I'm really nervous about acceptance letters. I mean, to me, there's a huge difference between attending UC Merced and UC Berkeley. Not to put down those who choose to go to UC Merced, but your best case scenario after attending UC Merced looks bleak in comparison to UC Berkeley," says Huu Nguyen, grade twelve.

With over 4,000 students making up the James Logan population, it surely isnít easy to make yourself stand out. One fellow student, however, has done enough to stand apart from the overwhelmingly large student body and score honorable recognitions. Currently a full time student at Logan, senior Amir Amiri still makes time to hold a second occupation as a professional musician.
Amiri has been a musician since the age of 10. He plays multiple instruments, but is particularly focusing on the string bass since he is part of the top Logan Jazz Ensemble. Additionally, Amiri plays brass and percussion instruments during other seasons of the year. Besides being part of the Jazz Ensemble A, Amiri has made contributions to the James Logan wind symphony, marching band, and string orchestra. He also plans to play in the musical occurring later in the school year.
