This is such nonsense...with a strong enough GPA, a 166 could get you into Berkeley, whose median is 167.
Even without a strong GPA, the T14-or-bust mentality isn't necessarily warranted. There are people who go to lower-ranked law schools, do very well at those law schools, and end up having very successful careers. I know several such people.
Who wants to turn this babbling into a Flaw LR question?
He has a point, though; the idea that a 166 won't get you accepted anywhere worth attending is overly simplistic.
