It all depends on that LSAT.

I had a 3.45 with a couple of failed classes and a few Ds. It is possible to still land a nice school even with some bad marks. URM helps too!

If the LSAT is around where I have been getting on the practice exams, do you think those two grades would affect their decisions?

Excluding the t14, if you truly are a URM, I'd think a 165 would guaranty admission into all of those schools - and a 160 into most.

A 170+ would probably get you into almost every school that doesn't require an oracle and a spool of goat intestine to accurately predict.

Not really. I mean they will look at your entire GPA and those grades will be part of it. Since you have a 3.47, I am assuming there is pretty strong upward grade trend.

Study hard for the LSAT, get a 170+, and cut out all the schools after USC and blanket the T-14.
