Rachel may have started off as a wide-eyed high school sophomore, but she’s now about to enter her freshman year of college — and in New York City, no less! Plenty of things about her have changed over the years, but the core of her cute, schoolgirl look has remained the same.
Now, we’re taking a moment to look back at each of Rachel’s class portraits so far. Take a peek, then head below to cast your vote. Which of the photos do you like best?
Plaid skirt. Cute cardigan. Minimal makeup. This look is just classic Rachel. She’s even carrying a giant, sparkling gold star. How much more quintessential Rachel Berry can you get?

Rachel’s grown out her bangs for this new photo, but the rest of her look seems pretty much unchanged. Preppy skirt? Check. Classic cardigan? Check. Cute, frilly shirt? You bet. Her Kids “R” Us rewards card must’ve gotten put to very good use!
During her senior year of high school, Rachel’s style grew and matured a little, but still remained classically cute, colorful, and kitschy. Plus, we love her new gold-plated microphone. Only the best for McKinley’s (self-proclaimed?) brightest star.
