Assuming good softs, personal statement, etc, is there a shot I can get in to a Tier1 school?

Yes. Are you a male or female?

You can get into a Tier 1 school with a 2.6? Wow. What schools?

AA Male.

He also has the better form of AA (affirmative action here, not African American) working for him. Better to bump up a low GPA than a low LSAT. There are more of the latter than the former, which leaves adcomms even more room for URM applicants when they don't exclusively pull down one stat category (LSAT).

Throw in a good excuse for the GPA (like: "I majored in Chemical Engineering") and he's in at a T25.
