Be careful with the medical addenda.

As for chances, I think you're unlikely to get T-14 without an LSAT boost. Assuming you're not in state in Virginia or anywhere else that might matter. If you do get T-14 it will likely be at or close to sticker. Probably still worth applying, at least to everywhere below the T6 assuming you an get fee waivers.

Vandy, Wash-U and below are all likely to be in play with decent money available. Remember and use Law School Transparency to compare scholarship offers to total cost of attendance. And also remember that these schools have much more geographically constrained markets and much less access to biglaw, particularly if there's any sort of economic downturn. By next summer we will be in the longest period of economic growth in US history. *

Why do you say be careful with the medical addendum? And as far those schools being geographically constrained, as long as I can get back to Texas I'm fine although I wouldn't mind Atlanta or California either, but according to Notre Dame's website the majority of their Texas students were able to find jobs in the state. Wash U might be really tricky though I'm not sure how well they place in Texas.
