    Are you speaking in terms of schools surroundings, size, attitude, selectivity, difficulty...?

    UCLA = USC
    Santa Barbara = Pepperdine
    Irvine = ?
    Davis = ?

    BTW: Stanford > Berkeley.

    If you are talking about graduate school, then I'd agree that Stanford = Berkeley, but for undergraduate program, Stanford is overall UNCOMPARABLY superior to Berkeley. I'd say in terms of prestige and name value UC Berkeley is more comparable to Emory or Georgetown.

    Well, I don't know if I'd go quite that far. In terms of academics and prestige, I am comfortable in comparing Berkeley undergrad to, say, Cornell. I would say that UCLA is probably comparable to Emory or Georgetown.

    Why's Stanford better for undergrad, specifically?

    Well, academically speaking, it's nice to to go a school where you don't have to worry about impaction, such that you can major in anything you want, and change your major anytime you want.
