The thing is softs go beyond WE/volunteering -- your PS and LoRs are also important. If someone has a 3.40 GPA but a 175 LSAT, a fantastic personal statement and letters of rec from a couple profs saying he has a once-in-a-generation intellect, it's pretty clear he has the potential to succeed in law school and beyond and I wouldn't be surprised if he got into Berkeley.
