Welcome. We can be a lot more helpful if you let us know what sort of URM you are. As reasonable mentioned, your barrier as an AA is 160. With a 160 and your great GPA, t14 acceptances with money are in your future.

Okay...I'm not touching sports law. I'll just focus on what schools to apply to, based on your LSAT. I'm also going to try to avoid just beating the retake drum. You can retake if you want to and you're so young that you have time, so retaking/sitting out is never the wrong move. Your softs are interesting, but not really strong, so it's going to come down to the numbers for you.
If you get less than 158, then you should forget it for this cycle, retake and reapply next time. Yes, you will probably snag a lower T14 acceptance with something between 155-158, but you wont be getting any money and your goal should be to go as cheaply as possible (as it is for all of us).
If you're 159-163, then you're good to apply from Chicago/Columbia on down. Higher than 163 means you aren't incinerating your cash by applying to Yale, Harvard, or Stanford (YHS). Yale and Stanford are crapshoots, but a 3.8/164 is getting H unless you screw up in some way.
Also, FORGET about the T50, unless there's a regional school that places where you have strong ties. Since you have unicorn aspirations, you're definitely going to want to go to the best school possible. It would be hard for me to see how local T50 state U will be that. Just look at the T14.
Appreciate the help! I will definitely take all of that into consideration.
I also have a question about a soft, I don't know how/if I should use it.
My aunt is a New York Times best selling author. She writes books for young girls ages 8-14. I've done a lot of work with her (ghostwriting, editing, vignettes, etc..) including writing a complete book that is going to be released under her pen name (tentatively late 2015, early 2016 although nothing is guaranteed). How should I use this? Should I ask her for a letter of recommendation? Even though she is technically a former employer, is it a little shady to get a LOR from a close relative? Or should I just add an addendum explaining my situation and the work I've done.
(btw, it is on my resume, but I feel like given the potential boost it could give me, maybe I should expand)
Please let me know your thoughts!
