...may not be screwed at all. I don't know how a 3.2 from a URM plays at those schools. You are above median, and that may be all you need.

I'm actually below median, somewhere between second 1/3 and median.

So you are at C or G? Neither are good spots because if you are at C you are well below the new supposed median and if you are at G then you are part of an enormous class.

Just make sure you are prepared to nail interviews and hope for the best!

Depends on where you are. At least at NU, a 3.2, even non-URM, is not totally out of the running for a big firm job.
