IMHO, it's just you, 'cause he asked for opinions, AND... in my
_opinion_, too many people find it all too easy to complain
about a school like UCB. UCB is SO inexpensive compared to
many other schools of the same caliber -"...terrible situation...
...afraid that it will not carry the prestige and resources
that it once did..." -gimme a break!

So, to make it simple, I'm saying:
A) quit whining
B) Berkeley is a fine school, especially for the money
C) make your decision based on several real parameters
(ie. cost, location, faculty, resources (UCB has plenty),
type of students, type of program, and so on...)
D) to hell with "prestige" (UCB does have this, though)

Hell, I didn't even go to Berkeley.
