I don't know much about URM bumps but I think you could shoot higher than these as an AA male.

How many times have you taken the LSAT? I would strongly suggest retaking. If you could get up to 164-165, you have a good shot at multiple schools in the T30. Even with your current score an early application would put you in good position to get into American, but those extra 4-5 points could mean $$$.

Broad question, depends on your score and desired region. Pretty much any school where your LSAT is at or within 2-3 points of the schools median is possible, barring those with 3.0 GPA floors (just check each school's graph on http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com)

These are other people with numbers similar to yours and their results.

Honestly though, my suggestion is to put everything into studying for the LSAT. There are relatively few high scoring URMs, so a good score can move you pretty far up in the rankings. I had the same GPA as you and got a 168, will be attending a T13 school this fall. So, right now, the three most important things to you should be LSAT, LSAT, and LSAT

Search lawschoolnumbers.com my friend. Univ of Baltimore is too shallow of an app. You have a great shot at Univ of Miami. Syracuse too.
