Yes, I know American, Villanova are major reaches, and Im only applying to American bc connections there could give me a chance of catching a hail mary pass lol. The T-20 generally have that rule in terms of 25/75 but the Tier 2 schools vary a lot ( at least according to what i see on LSN).
I got waitlisted at American today and my GPA is more than .5 lower than yours and I have a similar LSAT score. I also haven't made a C since 2001, and did 6 years of military in a very technical, high profile job, and am fluent in a pretty difficult (but relevant) foreign language, but still, I have a sub 2.5 LSAC GPA.
Lawschoolcalculator.com said I had a 9 percent chance at American, I applied literally a week and a half ago, and got waitlisted today. Apply and see, no harm in that.
