Not good in the T40. You might be able to swing Hastings if you're lucky.

USC and UCLA isn't going to happen, look at some lower tier1 and upper tier 2 schools.

Any idea how high I'd have to score on a retake to break into T40?

You have a decent shot at Hastings/Davis if you apply early, just because they tend to focus on GPA. USC/UCLA are a pretty long shot. SOCAL - numbers are in line with Loyola, Pepperdine, San Diego (#s are representative of Pepperdine's medians from last year, and slightly above the other two). $$ from Southwestern or Chapman.

"Breaking T40" for CA means either Hastings/Davis or else way up to UCLA/USC. 165/166 should put you in good shape for Hastings/Davis.

Or, better yet, retake the LSAT.

Did you really get into Emory with those stats? Right now I have a 3.98 GPA and I'm taking the LSAT in October. So far I'm scoring low 160s on the practice test, I'm trying to get it up to at least 163. I've been wondering what schools would be realistic. I'm also concerned about my extracurricular, they're good just not great. I'm interested in BC, Emory, Brooklyn Law, Cardozo, Tulane, Villanova, Fordham, etc. I'm thinking of applying to St. John's and Loyola Marymount as safeties. Any recommendations- aside from general comments like 'get your lsat up, girlll" would be appreciated. I realize that I could get the score up as I have a little under two months to study. I just want to prepare myself and be realistic. I'm also graduating a year early so everything seems confusing and extremely rushed. Don't know if schools would look favorably on the fact that i did undergrad in 3 years. This is also why my extracurriculars are not phenomenal. I honestly just wasn't given the time. Sorry for rambling.

I don't want to encourage thread hijacking, but if you can demonstrate that your performance on standardized tests is not a predictor of your work (like your eventual high GPA) you should mention that in an addendum and attach your (low) SAT score report. I'd say you have a good shot at #25-50 with the numbers you have. Otherwise, get your lsat up, girlll.

Unless you're underrepresented minority or something and write a compelling personal statement, you probably have to get the LSAT score up for USC/UCLA. Being first generation doesn't hurt, either, but I would put that into an addendum if there's a good story behind it.

I was going to graduate early as well until I went to the LSAC Forum and every representative over there recommended I stay the 4 years to build up a resume and to have time to study for the LSAT. I had so many credits that I had to quadruple major with 2 bachelors and a certificate, but it did help me by giving me more time to get myself together. I was under the impression that showing them I can do in 3 years something that takes most people over 4 years would be beneficial, but nope, not the case. Just kill the LSAT and you're all set with that GPA. Take it in december if you feel you still have room for improvement and apply next year. That's probably what I'm gonna do, I'm not too confident with taking the LSAT in October.

I really haven't given that much thought to putting another year in. I'm already double majoring and I'd probably have to get my masters degree in order to stay an extra year. It is at least a fall back and a good suggestion, I might take the LSAT in October, apply to schools, see how I do and if not, apply for the master's degree program.

Oh, and totally didn't mean to "thread hijack". I just joined for forum and am not totally conscious of the etiquette. Since these scores are sort of similar to mine I just figured maybe the answers to our questions would be similar. Yes, my GPA is higher but I also did undergrad at St. John's. Anyway, my apologies if I've drawn everyone off topic.
