I grew up in the state where I am applying, and I want to add a sentence to the cover letter to point that out. Good idea?

I am, but I went to undergrad & law school out-of-state, and it's not like I have my K-12 education on my resume.

Unless you're applying to a program that has you "list your preferences", or can strongly articulate a good reason for both cities, I wouldn't.
