I'm not sure what advice to give you except to say I would be very, very, very careful about how I mentioned the fact that I am currently suing my university.

As far as I'm aware, 2.5 160 is getting you a full ride nowhere.

How many different professors sexually harassed you?

Also, you do not have a decent LSAT

no one in the top tier is going to give you that full ride with current numbers. Even if your you have a reason for a low gpa, your lsat sucks. You need a score that shows that your gpa is an exception and not the rule. A great test score, or other qualifying accomplishments, will help prove that you are a deserving student. Don't ask adcomms to make an exception because you have had hardship, show that that despite hardship you deserve a spot and $$$.

+1 to the question and the observation. The multiple professors sexually harassing you sounds very far fetched to me, I'm not saying that it is not true but I am saying that adcomms might regard it skeptically. I think that your addendum will be viewed with a critical eye if you present the information that you have presented here.

2.5 in english is impossible, lowest grade ever recorded in an English class was a B-, and that guy was "special"

As an english major, I can verify this. 3.1 gpa in psychology, 3.78 gpa in english.

FWIW, I got an A+ in every math/elective/other BS class I ever took. My honors english classes were HELL. 40+ page research papers critiqued to the bone, back to back, usually on old english literature, and in multiple classes at the same time. And they would only give 1-2 As for the whole class. I would rather take my boyfriend's various calculus classes than repeat that again.
