I was in a similar situation to you a few years ago. I'd taken the LSAT undergrad and not done as well as I hoped. I was getting ready to apply to some schools in the 20-40 range, but my father (Partner at a law firm) convinced me to put some time in to pulling up my score. I took his advice, and I'm really happy I did.
The schools you are looking at are fine, solid law schools. But you are passing up an enormous opportunity if you settle for them. And again, I think you can do better than you've done even with your current numbers. Pull your LSAT up and apply early October. It's only a slight inconvenience now that will pay huge dividends down the road.
Don't people normally want T14 so that they can get a biglaw job and make money so they can pay off their debt? If I won't have any debt to pay off, is it necessary that I go to a T14? I'm not sure I could stand the atmosphere it sounds like is at those schools
