Re: Princeton vrs Berkeley
^^ totally agree with you that conditional on OP's interests and funding, Princeton may be the way to go.
My point was that if I was a malleable sponge that could choose a dissertation based on a school's strengths and had no financial constraints, I would go to Berkeley given this choice. Again, this is my perception of the school's outstanding culture but still excellent placements after speaking with many people.
