It's impossible to say. Law school predictor gives you some options in the second tier, with a consideration for IU-B.

I'm sure you'll get some acceptances in the T2 with a good addendum about your academics. The Midwestern schools might be your best bet, as a lot of them are splitter friendly, and seem to need to recruit harder for URMs. Illinois, Indiana, Minnesotta, WUSTL, etc.

If you got your LSAT above 167, a lot more doors would probably open, and that's not a huge increase from where you are now.

Black male cycles are already difficult to determine, but factor in your low GPA and it's going to be pretty damn impossible to predict. Emphasize your recent GPA increase and military service, and you may get lucky with a T1 acceptance. Check out lawschoolnumbers.com
