1) Hey! That guy has a really distorted and biased view of UC-Berkeley!
2) UC-Berkeley is one of the world's best schools.
3) UC-Berkeley is underrated on USNews's rankings. (Endowment per student is taken into consideration, so public schools are at an inherent disadvantage)
4) UC-Berkeley rules.

Best thing that will happen in your life. Nuff said. If you went to Cal, you know what I mean. If you go to Cal right now, you're the luckiest crowd living the best lives. If you are going to go to Cal, be prepared for the best years of your life. We got brains, got heart, got spirit, and $tanfurd got nothing on us. Go Bears.

aka cal, located right off the sf bay. A pretty nice school, some call us liberals, some call us hippies, but also decent in the ways of engineering and chem, among a few other things, and definitely not ones to brag about it. Sure, i guess were a pretty nice college, but other than that, were just some few mellow folks who'd be down to smoke a joint or chill under the trees on memorial glade
UC Berkeley, yeah....
