i am so in love with YLS. you cant even imagine. i went to Yale last summer to take a course and i fell in love with the university. i dont want to go there because it's #1, i want to go there because i feel like i belong there. the people are wonderful. and a great change of pace from superficial and artificial Los Angeles people. yuck.
I'm currently a film student at USC (so I really get around that "LA" mentality) and a midwestern girl at heart. What you said about the LA mindset is part of the reason I'm so gung ho about going back to the midwest for law school (especially U Chicago). I love Los Angeles as a city (weather, how there's so much to do, etc.), but I wish people weren't so obsessed about how they look, how others look, and what kind purse/shoes/sidekick/etc. everyone owns, to the point where it's considered unfashionable to swim in the ocean when you're at the beach (bc seriously, if I wanted to tan, I would have sat outside, not sat in 45 minutes of traffic and paid 15 dollars for parking).
