I might go a lot lower with a full ride. This is a pretty specific hypothetical. Outside of the t14 I'd probably go to UT, UCLA, USC, WUSTL, and Notre Dame. Might be forgetting some.

Depends upon your personal situation, preferences & career goals; in short, need more info.

P.S. Always avoid non-ABA accredited law schools & avoid those which have recently or are about to soon become the subject of a 60 Minutes investigation.

Fordham probably

ETA: This is all assuming there are no better options, of course.

How debt averse are you? I'd imagine you could get lower T14 with those numbers, although I have to check MyLSN tbf.

I also have a 167 and plan on retaking. You should too.

I know admissions #s are down across the board, but I thought my #s would make more T14s a slight reach?

Slight reach but the numbers seem ok at Cornell which aligns nicely with your goals. That being said, it's not going to get you a 3/4th scholarship. Retaking is probably TCR and what you're going to hear a lot of.

with those goals and w/ being debt averse you really need to retake.

Did you graduate in 2014 from undergrad and are now a barista with your shitty GPA and religious studies major? I'd dip into T3.

Are you graduating undergrad in 2015 and you are employable with a good job but just wanted to be a lawyer your whole life because? Nowhere.

For all the other in between scenarios, somewhere in between.

If you can swing a zero COA arrangement (living with parents, SO, etc.) I'd go pretty low.
