If you want to go Right how throw a app to Toronto (LinkRemoved) they take your best 3 years for admissions thus with for them you have a 175 4.0. Toronto will allow you to take the NY bar and have fair shot at BigLaw in NYC also the cost is much lower.
That being said apply to the T14 even the T6 you never know what will happen (I'm NA 159 3.2 and Columbia wait-listed by til Aug), Toronto would make a great safety however

I would apply everywhere if I were you, and by everywhere I meant the top schools. Yes your GPA sucks, but the addendum to explain that is a boost in and of itself because it demonstrates the kind of character that you have. Additionally, people get turned off by low GPAs because it makes you look like a slacker or not intellectually advanced enough to perform well in school. Ending with a 4.0 is great evidence to rebut that presumption. I think that at least one of the T-14 will accept you, please come back in a year and laugh at me if I'm wrong. I think that this is a great story and if it's true I think that you will go far with it.

Good luck!

I think you have a great shot at CCN provided that you can convince them that your health will not hinder your LS success.

Very good point. I am sure that I can write a good persuasive PS to convince them of that. Thanks!
