I'm a junior currently prepping for the LSAT. I'm interested in Tulane and realize it would be a reach for me with my 3.2.
Besides getting a 170 (to be above their 75th percentile) on the LSAT and raising my GPA these next three semesters, what could I possibly do to make it in?
I'm a political science major, business administration, and philosophy double-minor from a private university in TX.
I will be doing a semester in Germany next year, have experience as a clerk at a public interest law firm (I work for the social security disability/SSI partner). I will also be in an internship at the Mexican Consulate this summer. I am Mexican-American and female.
I'm considering quite a few law schools currently, but Tulane is at the top of my list, along with Northeastern. St. Mary's would be my safety (but I don't want 90k in debt from a Tier 4), and WashU would be another reach. If you could help with some tips, and possibly suggest additional safety schools, that'd be great.
Not sure where your numbers will get you? Dying to know where you stand? Come have your palms read by your fellow posters!

Obviously you don't have a score to go off of yet, but you are not taking into account the effect your URM status will have on your cycle. Even with a 160, you will still be getting into schools ranked higher than Northeastern. I would say don't go lower than Tier 1...you should get decent scholly offers throughout those rankings.
