Agree with the above, curious about your opinion on the following hypothetical scenario: If OP gets SLS off the WL with significant aid, at what price difference (if any) would you say go to S?

BTW Congrats OP!! Glad Cal came through for you!

Oh, there's definitely a point where the price difference gets small enough that it's worth it to go to S over B, even if your goals are limited to SF/SV. If SLS is, say, just $20K more than Berk, then go to SLS. If SLS is $100K more than Berk, then go to Berk. As for where the switchover point is between those two poles, I don't know. It depends on a bunch of factors and personal preferences.

I obviously change my vote from Harvard to Berkeley given the enormous price differential.

Congratulations on the full ride. That's very exciting.
