I think TCR is that they're tied in the rankings so you should go to the cheapest one.
I thought Berkeley was very ghetto and filled with homeless, even right outside the law school. I personally did not like it at all and anyone considering it should definitely visit first.
There area around Penn is very different - safer with lots of security. There is never any reason to have to be in the worse parts of Philly, unlike Berkeley where the law school itself is not in a good area.
