My numbers are 3.82/173, so I would have been fairly confident if I'd applied earlier in the cycle, but since I didn't apply until 12/29 I am not too optimistic, since it seems to make a huge difference at Berkeley. I know, stupid me for not applying earlier, but I didn't realize how much of a difference it made, and I was so demoralized after I took the LSAT that I couldn't bring myself to apply anywhere that I thought would be a reach with a 168-170, which is what I thought I got.
I'm in your boat but with a 168. So if I still have hope, you certainly should.
I should note, however, that my level of hope for Berkeley increased significantly (and probably foolishly) only because of the rapid turnaround I got from GW/Vandy/UCLA. Maybe one of my LORs was the best anyone's ever written. Or maybe I just had lucky timing for those schools and still have no shot at Berkeley. WHATEVER I JUST WANNA KNOW.
