Is it just me, or was that a useless response to a reasonable question?

I don't know enough about Berkely to tell you whether it is good or
bad, but you might also want to look closely at U Michigan and Georgia
Tech. Both schools get some state support (I think) so may be cheaper
than Ivys, and both have excellent and prestigeous (sp?) architecture
programs.

I doubt that prestige is going to be a problem for people coming out of
Berkely in the near future, it is and will likely remain highly
regarded. IMHO
