Whats your actual GPA? Are we talking a 2.XX or a 3.2X.

Depends on what the gpa is in that range

3.3 (I'll go ahead and assume a 3.24 gets rounded up) - MVP (ED), NU (with WE), GULC, Cornell
3.0-3.2 - UVA (ED), NU (with WE), GULC
sub 3.0 - NU (with WE)

CCN with a 3.0+ is a possible longshot with REALLY good softs

I had a 3.1 in engineering and an LSAT that was less than 175. Didn't apply ED anywhere. Got into Michigan, Cornell, GULC, Penn, and NW. Got merit aid at the first 3. If your GPA stays >3.0, it won't be a dealbreaker at any school outside HYSCCN, except maybe Berkeley.

Hell, NU with no WE might just get it done. I have a few friends here who have very, very marginal WE and sub-3.0 GPA's that rocked LSAT scoring 175+ ...

it is pretty hard to predict how schools will view your work experience, LORs and GPA. I am in the same boat 175, 2.98 and 12 years civilian and military work. I just blanketed the top 20 and a few others. My only regret is that I waited until November to get my apps in. I should have had them in the first week of September. I was just screwing around with the PS and being lazy.
More than half the schools gave me fee waivers too. I am, so far, WL at UVA, denied at Berkeley, in at UCLA, Minnesota, W&L.

Sounds about right I have 3.3ish numbers and am in one MVP, one CCN and one DNC so far. WL at GULC though - so it ends up being a bit of a crapshoot/bumpy ride.
