It's been explained. Splitters, reverse splitters, and URMs. Gotta have a GPA or LSAT above the median or be a URM. Having GPA and LSAT below the 25th %ile without URM status means not happening.
Let me rephrase my question more clearly. When I said that some people were getting in with 3.1s and 155s, another poster asked how did I know it was the same guy getting the 3.1 and 155. And I didn't. My question would be how do you or I know its not the same guy?
There simply aren't enough data points for us to predict accurately, but it doesn't look good for your friend. Out of all the profiles on LSN for 2010-2011 application year, there were only 2 reported T-14 acceptances with LSAT between 160 and 164 and GPA between 3.1 and 3.33.
Both were URM.
Take a look at the table at the end of Duke's ABA data (the only T-14 I could find with this type of data):
3 out of 282 that fit your friend's profile were accepted. Most people on here would probably say that the people that were accepted were URMs, but they could have been people like your friend. It's possible, but it just looks like a real long shot.
If I were him, I'd focus on Cornell and Northwestern and then schools further down.
