As you may know, colleges do not  release academic data for sub groups within the general academic pool. California  ( the state legislature ) changed the formula for determining admission decisions at all state funded colleges/ universities. That formula placed less weight on graded point , rank in class and SAT ( these all still count ) and added  activities, leadership and out of school interest. UCLA and Cal Berkeley still remain highly competitive, but are looking to , perhaps, change the  makeup of each incoming class. It is safe to say a 3.95 is not going to make it pass the first round of reviews. Of course, students will bring high GPA's to the table and they might be denied based on the new formula. Not knowing your entire academic background and profile it is difficult to offer you an exact answer.
In the article below if you scroll down or read through it completely, there is research to show a 40% increase in the Asian population at both Berkeley and UCLA - the comments of the author are very, very interesting: http://www.dailycal.org/2013/02/11/the-ivy-leagues-asian-problem/ Also, according to the website: www.collegexpress.com, a list is provided showing those schools with the highest percentage of Asian students - they have Berkeley listed as # 7 and UCLA as #10: http://www.collegexpress.com/lists/list/colleges-with-the-highest-percentage-of-asian-students/2361/ Good Luck!
