Agree. I doubt you could net anything above T6, with a 160. One at the lower end of the t14 is a likelier bet. I would advise retaking if there is any doubt that you reached your full potential on the test.

I think this is optimistic. Even with the URM boost I would say HYS are out. CCN is a reach , but worth throwing an application to see what happens. Most URMs with 160 get waitlisted, it seems 163 is about the cutoff for accepts, see here:

Given your current LSAT MVPB are your targets.

Oh no, for sure OP should throw out apps to everyone from H/S on down and see what happens. But I think H/S would be astounding and that CCN while possible should not be expected.
