If you're working part-time (enough to reasonably account for hours outside of studying), that's your soft. ADCOMs aren't going to hold your feet to the fire because you didn't participate in mostly meaningless EC's when you were working to support yourself. You'll be fine. Keep that GPA up, kill the LSAT with a 170+ and you'd be looking at T6 easy and possibly HYS. Aim high and get it done.

This. With a good GPA and LSAT and a little part-time WE, you are in much better shape than someone with a .2 lower GPA or 2 LSAT points lower with good softs. Your extracurricular activity right now (or later) is becoming an LSAT master.
