Berk is one of the harder schools to predict, and unfortunately they are super gpa heavy. Aside from the fact that you don't have an lsat and you'd have to be better than 99% of us to even have a prayer, I see your gpa making Berkeley being a stretch personally. The good news is even higher ranked schools do dip lower gpa wise, so if b doesn't work out you would certainly have great options if you kill the lsat. On the other hand, outside of the numbers Berkeley has a reputation as a liberal institution and a strong diversity statement etc will certainly help to some degree.

The reality is no one will have a strong answer for you because we have no idea how you'll do on the lsat, and Berkley is a strange school admission wise that seems to factor in numbers less than some other top schools.

Definitely over 170 or you have no chance. However, as the poster above mentioned, your GPA makes you an unlikely candidate and no score will provide any guarantee.

Make a very compelling application with good WE, PS, diversity statement, and a strong LSAT (over 75th) and you can pray

Study for the LSAT, and have a 173+ or bust mentality. That should give you a chance.
