Your LSAT score will almost certainly likely knock you out of the T14. That means you need to look at the regional schools. First question: what market do you want to practice in? Once you figure that out, use http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com, Chiashu, and HourUMD to gauge your chances of successfully being admitted to/getting scholarship from particular law schools that service that market.

The only one on your list that I have any experience with is Texas. Without knowing more about you than your OP, I feel confident predicting you won't get in at UT. If you want to practice in Houston, throw out apps to UofH and STCL. For Dallas, do SMU and Tech. For San Antonio, go to St. Mary's. For a life that makes you want to killself, apply to Baylor. Whatever you do, don't go to OU thinking you'll work your way into Dallas Big/MidLaw. You won't.

That's all I can think of for now. Good luck!

Sorry. I wasn't clear - I meant Univ. of Tennessee, not Austin. And the Southeast is primarily where I was thinking. Thanks!

I'd also apply to Tulane, Alabama, UGA. These are reaches but worth taking a chance.

OP is out at UGA and Bama thanks to their LSAT walls, but if OP has money to burn, why the hell not.

You know -- one's just 99 years older than the other.

Haha...I'll see your age argument and counter with rankings/relevance.*

*Relevance is not to be construed to include current football teams. Let's be honest-it's a push, at best.
