yeah, if I got into Berkeley I'm pretty sure I'd end up there as I've always wanted to live in the Bay Area... But it's not looking good for me. I went complete there on 11/7 and still no word...
Yeah I have a similar GPA and didn't even apply to Boalt after looking at the admit stats. Honestly, you'll have better career prospects from Virginia (any maybe even Northwestern).
One benefit of Northwestern... it's in the Chicago equivalent of NYC's Village, lots of fun bars, clubs, and restaurants right nearby. I also hear the facilities are quite nice, if a bit cramped. Also, age wouldn't be a consideration for you, as I'm guessing you are 27+ from your LSN, which is what turned me off from Northwestern.
Personally, I'd take Virginia, unless Northwestern tossed some money (as they have been known to do).
