Are you a URM? I'm not sure what the ruling on Salvadoran is, but it will make a difference.

LSN is better for strict number questions. All you are doing by asking that question here is having other people go on LSN and LSP and predict for you. Few have inside knowledge.

Write a diversity statement. You're far more likely to get a boost for being Salvadoran if you actively identify as such.

The only thing I would add in case OP is unaware is that he or she is a splitter, and NW, WUSTL, and ?UVA ED? are splitter friendly according to the gossip.

But I agree with what some posters are implying, which is that unless an applicant has something really zany about his or her application, these threads tend to be unnecessary given all the info available on LSN and LSP.

You aren't a URM. I'm assuming you are a non-MA/PR Hispanic in which case you may get a slight boost against people with similar numbers (though that is still highly unlikely) but even if it happens it isn't going to get you in to any place that your numbers don't already make you eligible for.

Also +1 to what Glock said.

West Coast law schools love GPA, and are often unwilling to overlook a lower GPA even with a high LSAT.
