I'll take the flurry of responses to equal out to a maybe.

If you're a NC resident then I believe you have a much better chance at UNC than if you're a non-resident, because they have to keep a lot of seats (70%?) for in-state students.

As far as your actual percentage chance, I couldn't give you any more insight than just running your numbers through lawschoolpredictor or looking at the graphs on lawschoolnumbers.

Yes on Wake, though this year the cutoff for money seemed to be 164.

Not sure on UNC, but probably better than even if you're a resident of NC. If not, then probably very little chance.

This.

Apply as early as you can.

Sounds good.

I am a resident.

Think if I got a 165 on the LSAT my chances will significantly improve?

Yes. Not at Wake, you're already in, but for money, yes, you'd probably get around $22K a year at Wake with a 165 if you applied early.

UNC, I don't know, but a higher LSAT is always better.
