You're right. My understanding from reading a few online articles is that Cathrine Fisk, who is well known in the employment sector, is also planning to leave UCI for Boalt. If true, that's two really good gains for Boalt and two big losses for UCI. I wouldn't be surprised to see Boalt go T7 in the next round of rankings and UCI to fall out of T30.
There is no way Boalt goes to t7. They have some of the lowest employment scores in the t13 and there has been a massive firesale recently with their professors. A LOT of professors have been active on the hiring market either trying to leave or actually leaving. This is especially enhanced by the fact that Boalt and UC Berk generally are getting their budgets absolutely crushed, not enough money coming in to pay for professors, and much more. The UC deficit right now is brutal and no sign of abating. So no, Berk will stay around the 11-13 for the conceivable future.
