if we look at the world rating for 2021 Stanford ranks a solid #2 in computer science closely followed by cmu at #3. for more info- https://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/university-subject-rankings/2021/computer-science-information-systems

hope this helped.

Both Stanford and Berkeley are really good options! A lot of people do not realize that Berkeley is consistently number 1 or near the top of the rankings for computer science and financially, it is more affordable if you are in state. It is also a really good bet especially since you are near silicon valley so you will have access to lots of opportunities, making it a bit more practical. However, Stanford has a strong brand name and if you are not in state, Stanford would be the best option. Hope this helps :)

Stop it with these rankings! All of these schools are the best in the world for computer science, and you will be more than happy at all of these schools. I don't think one is outright better than the others

I'm sorry but I really wanted to know which one is best as I can't apply to all of them, thus the rankings.
