I've been planning on applying to law school since my freshman year and know it's what I want to do. My first 3 semesters of undergrad I dealt with a lot of family strain and other challenges (my parents split my first semester, both of them lost their jobs in my first year, I lost a cousin in a car accident, my best friend to suicide, and another friend died suddenly). Despite all of these things I continued to take an exceptional courseload every semester (20sh, 18sh, 21sh, 19sh). This semester I've come to realize that I've been burning out as well as have not been handling these situations well. I've started going into counseling as well as completely changed the major I was originally going for and am on track to have mostly A's and one B. If I continue to do this for the next few semesters I could realistically graduate with a 3.5 GPA, but about a 3.4 at the time of application next year. I just wanted to get some advice on what schools I should be targeting when I start my application process.

I've visited multiple schools and have met with multiple admissions counselors (does this make me memorable at all) and I qualified for an LSAC fee waiver so I think application costs would be waived by most schools.

It sounds like you know what to do, so just get it done. Write about your experiences in an addendum, and you'll probably end up at HYS.

Just take easy classes at this point and boost your goa. You've already taken care of the hard part.
