Ur right, why are we comparing pastry shops? This should be an obvious choice: women in LA >>>>>>>>> Berkeley women
Hahah, joking aside. As far as employment goes, while firms do recruit from LA because of status/name, the firms I've spoken with have said that the LA's strong applicant pool has "lessened over the years". Not sure what that means, either the schools aren't pumping out students that are interested in working for firms or the literal interpretation which is that the student's just aren't as good. Has anyone else heard this?
Sidenote: on the topic of UCB students trying to come to LA to find work, i know 2 recent graduates who had to retreat back to norcal to find jobs because they had no luck with LA firms. Just a point I thought was worth mentioning.
