<p>Even though I didn't SIR yet. The lady , Amy was awesomeand EXTREMELEY awesome.
No helpful calls from DAvis have been forthcoming.</p>
<p>I think subconsciously I have been leaving the option open.</p>
<p>I was on the fence and then decided that Davis would be fore me.
However, for my personal situation, Berkeley has been more supportive and down to earth.
CALso is around the corner and I am still onthe fence. </p>
<p>Okay. I have avoided the "CAl is so perfect" threads but now I am open. PLEASE tell me why Cal is freaking awesome so I can convince my parents that it is not the crime-infested hell hole that they remember. I feel bad for this but I am going to need all of the help I can in convincing my parents that I won't be in danger living in Berkeley.</p>
<p>Thank you and I appreciate any help with convinving arguments.</p>
