Berkeley lists its 25th - 75th percentile LSAT scores as 164-169.
If you are not an underrepresented minority, and fall below the 25 percentile (you have a score of either 161,162 or 163) is it really difficult to get accepted?
I guess my question is do law schools give URMs priorities if their score is below the 25th percentile as opposed to those who aren't?

Are you asking whether URMs outperform their numbers? The answer is obviously yes. If anybody's numbers fall below the 25th %ile, though, they're probably not getting in.
