My guess would be yes but apply to all of them because your cycle will be extremely unpredictable... You'll definitely get into a T20, that LSAT won't get past WUSTL but my gut feeling is that someone in the T14 will bite.

That's the plan. i will apply to every T25 school. I think my 99.99th percentile LSAT score should get me somewhere great. I even heard LSAT score is weighed more than GPA on admission indexes.

This is a Tax Guy alt - subtle trolling that the LSAT isnt really a good indicator.
