How would taking a trip to Berkeley convince me that it has the best student body of any school in the country?


Unless I'm mistaken, opinions are something you craft, usually through experiences.

To better understand a large portion of the people at berkeley, watch this.

O everyone at berkeley is attractive, wears next to no clothes the entire time, and parties non-stop? Forget what I said earlier, it must have the best student body. There aren't attractive, slutty, partiers at most other universities.

You are incorrectly assuming that, by posting that song, I was conveying that the berkeley female student body is attractive and slutty. Katy Perry would also be quite offended by your interpretation of her song...she is merely stating that california girls are both unforgettable and undeniable. It could be the sun, the liberal state/upbringing, the weed, etc. you gotta get out of the midwest or wherever your from and come see us :lol:

It always blows my mind when I remember that Cal and Berkeley are the same school.

If not a troll, no one in LS admissions gives a fuck where you went to undergrad. It's all about the numbers, which you clearly have. /end thread.

Bear Territory = Cal slogan. OP is at Berkeley.

Whoever posted the California Girls video has never been on campus here. It is not like that at all. Not even a little bit.

I'm sure those schools are very content being top 15 private undergraduate institutions.

I'm sure they are. I pointed out the public T25 thing because it is in the OP. But I agree with you that this is most likely a troll. I think I remember another post like this apparently from a Berkeley undergrad that popped up here a month or two ago. I have a hard time believing that people at Berkeley are unaware of the prestige that that name carries.

They should have thought of something original, like "Tiger" or "Trojan".

While I enjoyed my time at Berkeley because everyone was mad chill, the UG females were much less attractive than I expected. I was actually shocked as I walked around the campus.

They actually are unforgettable, but more in the 'the pain is forever etched into my brain, all the huge manatee' kind of way.

Well to bring this thread back to the topic, I hope it will make some difference. I go to a top 19 private Catholic undergrad university in the Midwest whose alumni network is renowned across the country. I refuse to believe that after I graduate from law school my Notre Dame (oops, I slipped up) affiliation will not amount to anything. If that is the case, though, that's really depressing.
