Family/boyfriend appropriate info to include in a LOCI?

Family/boyfriend appropriate info to include in a LOCI?

Harvard put me on hold and suggested supplementing my application. I was going to send a statement of purpose essay and a letter of continued interest saying that Harvard's my top choice, which is true. Would it be appropriate to include in the letter that one reason I like the location is because it's reasonably close to my family and boyfriend? Obviously, it wouldn't be the focus of the letter; I would just mention it in passing. On the one hand, I feel it sounds juvenile, especially the boyfriend part, but on the other hand, I think it sounds like a convincing and real reason why I would pick Harvard over Stanford or Yale (if I ever got in). Thoughts?

I would mention the family/support group stuff and leave out the boyfriend part.
