I'm grad student at Berkeley, and I entered with none (!) of the extra courses you mention and haven't taken any undergrad physics courses. (If any of those courses might be helpful, I might try to squeeze in the second semester E&M but really you'll be okay without it.) Some of my fellow first year students came in even missing several core undergrad classes.
I know Berkeley is a pressure cooker, but you have to keep in mind that you and your classmates are among the best prepared physics majors in the country. I think you'll do just fine applying to grad school, even if you set your sights pretty high.
Anyways, if you're around this summer, I'd be happy to get lunch with you one day and talk over your plans. Just send me a PM if you're interested.
