I'm from So Cal. If I'm ever caught using "hella" in a serious manner, I want someone to strangle me.

Haha good for you!

Don't forget - it's SF, not San Fran, not Frisco. Never say Frisco.


Or just "the city," which is what I always go with because of this:

Absolutely agree on this one. Possibly the biggest mark against Stanf/Berkeley IMO is "hella"

I'm in New England and there are a fair number of people here who say "hella". They're not even from California. I assume they picked it up from a friend, much like a disease.

Yes, we're a big fan of that word. But wicked > hella. At least in my opinion.

I believe the correct New England response to this is: [expletive] [expletive] [maternal expletive] [expletive].

I would not. one of the worst logo redesigns I've ever seen. Seriously, you don't do graphics in house, you go to someone who does logo design for a living.

That being said, I'd gladly wear the old logo.

You are [expletive] correct, good sir, although that is perhaps more "Mid-Atlantic"-y

And I hear "hella" much more than "wicked". I wish I heard more "wicked" in my life.

Hey, if I got into B, I'd wear whatever they told me to wear. I'd go to class in skirts if that's what it took to get me in.

there's this new word catching on called "ratchet" which describes a crazy drunk party, or something that is just generally disorderly. i personally think its hella dumb but that's just me.

also know that yes is often replaced with yee. swag is also a popular word, as it is all over the country now.

Oh god, Frisco is the worst. And the train you take to SF (or "the city") is BART, not "The BART".


lol. Being from the bay, this is the easiest way for me to tell someone is not from around here. "The Bart" lol

Only 5 so far (according to LSN) for what's supposed to be the highest acceptance week if we're relying on last cycle's data. Hopefully, there'll be a lot more tomorrow and Friday. GL
