GPA below 25th. LSAT above 75th.)
Generally, I noticed where I went to school that being over one median gave you leeway on the other, even for non-URMs, for top tier law schools.
As for apps, I'm hoping mid-late September if I don't need to take the September test. If I do, then I'll submit immediately after scores come in early October.
