Being realistic.. T4 is out. I'm fine with it. My realistic reaches will likely be Penn/Duke/Mich with targets of NU/Cornell/Berkeley/UVA. Who knows though. I'm STEM, and going into IP.. I'll hopefully get patent bar registered before attending, so that might help the resume. Regardless, going into big law isn't impossible from a T20 if I do IP.. but I'm keeping my goals there.
edit: ill of course throw the yalemary and the stanmary (praise treegod) just for good measures. I have no issues with sucking ass. I'll give every school a Why X and it will be a damn convincing essay at that. I'll at least make them shed a tear before rejecting me.

T4 being Chi or Columbia? because columbia is in the realm of actuality. Seems like Penn is still good even if you have a 2.6, just make sure your app is air tight. Are you URM/have relevant WE or volunteering/Unique softs? There is talk about the 2.7/177 URM having a shot at Stanny.
Not URM - Normal white guy. I have been working in engineering firms for the last 2.5 years (will be 3.5 by next fall), so that helps. Softs aren't unique but I have a decently strong personal statement/gpa addenda. I've talked to MS9's firm about it and will likely seek out their services to help as much as possible.
AFAIK, only people are CLS aficionados use the term T4.
CLS is probably possible with a sub 3.0 if it's near the 3.0. I know someone who got in with around a 3 and a super tight LSAT score, but he also had softs that schools would possibly find impressive. I imagine a 3.0//173 has a better shot than a 3.3//170 at CLS.
Splitters are so weird; I've seen 3.5/175 pull S but wonder if a 3.3/4 180 could pull it as well. I think a lot of softs come into play more so than with strong number applicants. With a kickass PS and GPA addendum I see him pulling CLS, whether or not any merit aid is given is to be determined I mean this happened http://lawschoolnumbers.com/kkdk
HYS are weird in general, their lowest GPA for H and S has been low 3.X but I wonder what those folks did. No point in throwing all my coal into those trains.
