(that was a joke)


Theres quiet rumblings about the possibility of UCLA and Berk just swapping spots in the USNews rankings. They think this is a simple fix for everyone involved, and removes the problem of having a school like Georgetown move up when it doesn't deserve it.

Thanks for making this thread, by the way. Berkeley is unreasonably high on my list of schools. I would love to live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Wooo at last! :D Btw OP you missed an international option in the 'where are you from' poll. So count this as a vote in that direction.

Has anyone written a Berkeley-specific PS (or a 'Why Berkeley')?

Seemed like a lot of people who got dinged last year just threw their typical 2 pg PS to Berkeley, so I think they appreciate the extra effort. I also like the length and content of my PS as is right now, so I think I will look for a way to naturally weave it in.


Yes, make sure you write a personal statement for Berkeley to their requested specification. This is a big must.
