That's a very broad question. Why don't you tell us your numbers and then the people on here could give you a better answer?

I think UCLA may be out because they're big on GPA. What makes you want to go to UCLA? Trying to practice in SoCal?

It's too broad a question. A 3.8+ with a low 160's LSAT (preferably 163+) has a shot. A 3.0+ with a 171+ has a shot, but a small one unless they are 3.4+.

I mean there is a chance you can get in but you will probably be waitlisted. 170+ splitters with close to 3.0 GPA's are usually better served by aiming for lower T14's (like UVa, but even UMich/UPenn are more lenient than UCLA/USC) than they are by aiming for UCLA/USC.

Whatever their median LSAT is. 3.6 is below median for GPA, you're going to need a median or better LSAT to counteract that no matter what.

What is the best shot for T14 with 3.2 171? Only chance at MP with an ED? and UVA with ED? Cornell?

UVa is usually the best because they have a very methodical ED process, especially early in the application cycle. Since they are peers of the rest of the lower T14 (and better than USC/UCLA) it is usually best to ED there to maximize your chances of getting a T14 (if that is what you want).
