take the lsats. to break into the t10 i think you need between a 155-160 if your a male. if you get anything above a 165 your looking at harvard, stanford, yale.

You need to be in solid 160s to have a shot. But the answer to these questions is always just do the best you can. You obviously are very capable, so score a 170+ and enjoy a full ride somewhere. Good luck!

Im gonna go ahead and say 165+, 155-160 seems to be quite low, even with your GPA. Supposedly URM cycles are very unpredictable, so the better your LSAT the better your chances.

Why not do your best? What is up with all these posts that say basically, and I'm paraphrasing, what is the lowest score I need to get into a top law school? The higher you get, the better chance you will have. Nice and simple.

My best guess is that you will need a score of 163 or higher to be confident of being admitted to at least one top 14 law school. But any score above 160 will get you serious adcom attention at many of the Top 14 law schools.
