WUSTL is pretty likely based on numbers alone.

However, what kind of minority are you?

with URM status and a 170 LSAT, i would consider Georgetown as well. i think with that GPA, the top t-14s are kind of out of play. but i agree WUSTL could be big scholarship money as well.

Mylsn.info doesn't have a large enough sample to really predict your outcomes.

Northwestern is in play, too. Apply broadly. An AA splitter could have surprising acceptances.

I'd aim even higher (nyu, uva, mich, cornell etc.)

I think 170+aa is a pretty potent combo, 2.7 notwithstanding

This. Not even 50 people have this combo. You're like a 40-40 hitter with a low batting average. Someone always overpays.
