I'm from the bay and I think Northern Californians themselves are a good looking group if you're looking for a bit of diversity. BUT (and this could be an exception if you are going to a top school), it can be hard to meet attractive people who are also smart and not completely self absorbed. After not living here for four years while I was away doing my undergrad and now moving back I'm realizing there is something weird going on with people my age in the bay... but I can't figure out what it is.
Its hard to meet non attractive people who are stupid and aren't self absorbed. In general, people seem to care an awful lot about their meaningless existences.
