The law school calculator had me at a weak consider at BC and rejected from almost everything else (including school that waitlisted me with a 154 last year). So I have no idea.

I am a black/Latino male

I might consider EDing CLS if you want a T6 and don't mind sticker.

Check out LSN but I think T3 are out though probably still worth the app fee.

This seems too pessimistic considering an a waitlist from CLS with a January app.

I would try something like ED at a T6 then ED at UVa/GULC not admitted to T6 (assuming T14 or bust mentality). Of the T6 I would think NYU the most likely and CLS the least likely but CLS did waitlist the OP last cycle.

You'd probably get a near-full ride from WUSTL, especially if your softs are good. You might have a shot at their Walter Moran Farmer scholarship, which is worth checking out. /trolling

I don't know that anyone's going to be able to give you a very good prediction for your cycle, but the 160 definitely helps. Apply to as many schools that you'd be willing to attend as possible, and good luck.

why no NYU, I think this is your best bet for a highly ranked school.
