Care to explain?
Berkeley is a really wonderful place to be as a student, and the Bay Area in general is a great environment. Plus, there's plenty of evidence from weather.com to support Cal. When evaluating two equally ranked schools, lifestyle and climate are sufficient to prefer one over the other, IMO.
Chicago also has a reputation for harsh grading and intense competition, not a lot of fun either. But I don't want to come across as an anti-Chicago troll; I'm not making the choice myself, so don't take me too seriously.
