Your softs are unimpressive.

Check mylsn for schools.

Probably blanket the T14.

Congrats on an awesome LSAT score. Would give you the same advice as other splitters. Apply broadly to all of the T14 and any strong regionals in the area(s) you want to practice. Write the optional essays for everywhere and get your apps in as early as you possibly can. Depending on your goals, consider EDing Northwestern for a chance at the 150K scholarship. I would also not advise writing an addendum for your GPA. It is on the lower side but not so low to put you out of the running at almost all of the T14.

With well written apps and getting them in early, I think you will have a good cycle though it could be a bit unpredictable in terms of $ and admissions. I had similar stats to you this past cycle though I was a few years out of undergrad. Feel free to PM if you like and best of luck

I'd say the best school at which you would have a good shot would be Columbia. Agree with the others: apply to all T-14. You'll surely get into multiple schools. I would also advise that you apply as early in the cycle as possible; I think that, as a splitter, it will be particularly important for you to do so. Locking in Columbia ED might also be a strategic move if you don't care about scholarships, though I would assume you might be getting some money at places like Duke etc. Good luck!
