Am I out of luck?

EDIT: Thanks for all of your input! I guess I will be the test case for how soft factors can potentially play into admissions. I will update you all when I hear back next month!...hopefully good news (extreme optimism/foolishness?).

Approximation..I guess I could say >25% and it would mean the same thing.

EDIT. And actually, the first adcomm I met with told me I was at their 40% for both LSAT and GPA...I guess I should have put that instead of the other two options.

I think you need to be at one median to get in, even ED. Unless you're URM.

You're pretty much out if below both medians.

I'm also going to say slim to none, but in any event please keep us updated. Yours is a good test case for if soft factors (besides the absurdly impressive and work experience) have any effect.

Good choice. Also, I suggest you overnight them a shrine you have created in their honor.
