looks like you will have a decent shot at NYU and down with a 3.6-3.7 and 172+ except Berkeley (3.8+). You can probably get a more comprehensive idea by looking at LSN graphs.

The best indicator to be honest is lawschoolpredictor.com. This site will run some calculations on your scores and if you are a URM, and then give you a probability of admittance. It goes based on the 2009 cycle so its current and quite accurate.

Of course, your softs will come into play if your a borderline candidate(consider, weak consider), but any school that lists you as strong consider or admit should be a good bet that you will in fact have an opportunity at that school.

I was curious so I ran the numbers for you and a 170 flat and a 3.7 GPA puts you as a denial at the top three but strong consider at UM, Duke, Georgetown, UCLA, and Cornell, and an admit at Texas. A 172 and 3.7 gives you admits at all the aforementioned schools, plus strong considers at Penn and NU. You also would be in the running for Columbia, Berkeley, Chicago, and NYU.

Looks like if you have a 170-172 a 3.7 will get you into a T14 for sure. A top 5 admittance really needs a 172+ LSAT and a 3.7+ GPA.

Go check it out its kind of fun to plug in the numbers.
