Maybe lower t14 (cornell, gwlc) will be possible with a 165 given URM status and decent softs. Your gpa isn't shockingly low, so that's not a huge problem.

TLS will say retake and get a 170 and enjoy CCN and maybe HYS.

I think if you don't want to retake, your score needs to be 165+ for sure, but retaking and guaranteeing a score closer to 170 will do you lots of good.

Good luck!

You will get likely get into a t10 with a 165 and your NA URM status. Apply everywhere in T14 minus HYS.

Be very careful in assuming this makes you URM. It might give you a smaller boost (proportional to maybe Cuban, which is not anywhere close to URM), but I'm fairly sure most of TLS has discovered that you only qualify if you're CDIB'd, or otherwise registered with a tribe.
