But hating on Berkeley is so fun....
The first time you waitlisted me (4th quartile, ouch), I thought we just needed more time to get to know each other. Maybe if I flashed a little more public interest work experience, really dove into that "non-dramatized" 4-page personal statement, you would see that I'm so much more than a pretty face and an LSAT above your 75th.
But then you waitlisted me, again. And I realized that it’s not me, Berkeley. It’s you. It’s you, with your drought-scorched wasteland of aging white hippies, your cost of living on par with NYC but absolutely nothing to show for it. Oh, another mediocre bar flooded with ugly tennis shoe and hoodie-wearing undergrads? Thanks, but I'll pass. You’re not as edgy as Oakland, not as cool as SF, and for a $4.50 latte I really expect better coffee art.
Berkeley, I'm sorry to break it to you, but you are the hipster douche of law schools, the white vegan Marxist with dreadlocks whose rapacious and self-righteous quinoa and almond milk consumption is starving Bolivian farmers and destroying California's wild salmon populations. You claim to be chock full of liberal social justice-y treehuggers, but in reality you have one black friend and those hippies you love so much still get their lawns manicured by the same underpaid migrant workers you purport to help in your clinics.
No thanks, Berkeley. I'll be sitting this one out.
here we go!
whammy that was good!
