But the thing is, I'm wondering if Berkeley is going to read it and whether or not having family in the area is worth mentioning. Hmmmm.... decisions, decisions. What does my heart say? How about my stomach? I'll get back to you guys.
Cool link. Thanks for posting it. The author mentions cases in which you should not submit a "Why X" statement, including when a school is so legit that it goes without saying why you'd want to study law there. I kind of feel like Berkeley fits in that category.
Idk; Berkeley is tied with Penn in the USNR and it's definitely a good idea to write a Why Penn...
