JavaScript JavaScript Basics Making Decisions in Your Code with Conditional Statements Add an 'else if' Clause

What is wrong with this code?

I do not understand how to change else if message

const isAdmin = false;
const isStudent = true;
let message;

if ( isAdmin ) {
  message = 'Welcome admin';
} else if ( isStudent ) {
   message = "Welcome student";        
  }else () {


Hey it seems you completed the code for the challenge just fine, however, i believe the additional 'else' clause that you added may be unnecessary and that may be whats stopping you from going forward here. Try removing that empty else statement and I believe it will work

I figured it out. I removed () from the last else and it ran. I was able to complete the whole challenge. Thanks for the help!

You actually have the right code, but then after it there's more code that is not asked for in the instructions. The final "else" and what follows it should not be there.
