The good news is that for schools in your LSAT range, your GPA is already above median at many of them, and that will help you.
How do you know my LSAT (171 btw). I'd be a mild splitter at most schools in my LSAT range I think.
I'm aware of the impact of US News. OTOH I've seen a lot of admissions people SAY at least that they try to adjust for it (talked to the UVA guy actually).
Oh, you mentioned a 160 LSAT in your first post, so I figured that was your LSAT score.
In that case, yeah, you're in mild splitter territory... the good news is that your LSAT is above median at schools like UVA (170 median) so it'll help make up for your GPA being below-median... in that case, they may look at an adjustment, but I'd still call that a "soft factor", which schools may or may not choose to do.
What schools care about most is LSAT and LSDAS GPA. Since you have a high enough LSAT to warrant consideration they may look more closely, it'll just vary depending on the school and how it operates.
