Am I doing something wrong or treehouse just picky?

Bummer! Hmm. I don't see the message 'Welcome student' in the alert message.

My browser is displaying an alert message...

script.js
var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = true;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator')
} else if (isStudent) {
  alert('Welcome Student');
}

Hey Timothy,

Nope, your code is correct, but the code checker is a very ... very picky thing. You capitalized the "s" in student in the else if alert method. just change that to a lower-case 's' and you're good to go. :)
