I am taking the LSAT in October and I wanted to know what score I should be looking for to be a lock for T14 schools?

Thanks

That depends on which school(s) you want, if you want free money, your softs and statements.

I'd imagine no lower than mid-150s should get you into a T-14. 160 and above will get you in with money.

I have decent softs like first gen, internships, PT work during college and some FT work I guess. But im primarily looking for CCN on down I guess.

Why are you excluding HYS ?

CCN down definitely shoot for at least a 160. The higher the LSAT score, the less likelihood of being waitlisted or not having money on the table.

Limited resources for application fees. I will solicit some fee waivers and attempt to make that work to apply to at least standford, I would prefer them.

Depending on LSAT score, I would throw apps to at least two of the HYS elite group. If that means holding off on applying to the likes of G-Town and/or Cornell then do so. HYS are all worth it.

I am sure you'll get some fee-waivers. You can even try soliciting some at one of the LSAC forums they host in various cities starting next month. :)
