All four are great schools and also an excellent value because they don't cost a fortune. Boalt is definitely in a league of its own, it has a more national reputation and is certainly harder to get into. I went to Davis for undergrad, it a really nice community - small, low key with a bit of a hippie crunchy granola vibe if your into that sort of thing. It has an excellent reputation locally, and there are a fair few opportunities in Sacramento with the Capital being there. You'll probably also head to the bay to look for jobs, which means you're also up against Boalt, Stanford, and Hastings. Hastings has a great reputation statewide, and my friend who just graduated loved it. It's located in not the greatest area downtown, and it's a large school. Most students communte from other areas of the city or from the east bay, which is pretty easy because of the great public transportation in that area. UCLA is also a great school, but I'll admit it's the one I know the least about.
