<p>I don't know if this is the right place for my questions, so I apologize if it's not.
I am applying for studying one year at UC and UCSB is my first choice. My area of studies is Economics, Business and so on.
I have 2 big questions:
1 Do you know any UCSB professor which I could contact and that could be helpful? It would be good to have a contact for my application.
2 A family friend is Engineering professor at UCSC, so different place and different studies. The point is, how should I use this in my application? Should I get a presentation letter or just name him in my personal statement?</p>
<p>Thank You in advance</p>
