It seems very, very unlikely. Berkeley's known for valuing GPAs more than almost any other school. Maybe if you score really high on the LSAT, but I wouldn't count on it.

No, not berk. The highest ranked school you likely have any chance at is UVA. And, you'll need at least a 170 and ED, maybe even higher. In fact, almost all the good California schools are out because they value GPA much more than other top schools.

Retake the GPA and ED to LSAT.

You may have *a* chance if you got a reallllyyyy absurd LSAT score like 175+ and you have a really interesting personal story and got that 3.0 at an elite university but otherwise its gonna be reallllll tough like everyone else said. Does anyone know why the top 3 CA schools are the way they are wrt valuing GPA? Seems like at least one of them *should* be more splitter friendly, in an abstract sense.
