Typically speaking, a splitter is above 75th on LSAT and below 25th on GPA. Reserve splitters flip that.

So, technically, you don't meet this definition. But it's not like there's some dude at the adcomm conference table who's putting a pink sticky on your application with the word "splitter" on it. It's just a colloquially easy way to denote someone's cycle info. Doesn't really matter. Put together the best package you can and good luck.
