Better weather, better school, and if you want to have a good time that doesn't feel undergrad-y, you're going to be heading to San Francisco regardless of whether you go to Boalt or SLS.
True, but it takes 15-20 mins. on BART to get to SF from Berkeley, whereas from Stanford you're going to need a car (unless you driev to train station and take a train to the BART station) and it will take you, assuming no traffic, about 50mins-1hr. If there is traffic, you could be talking 2-2.5 hours easily.
