4.03/170 - Where is the line between reach and target?

I have a 3.98GPA (4.03 weighted) and a 170 LSAT. Ideally, I am aiming for a T14, but since the schools at this level are all extremely competitive, at what rank should I consider the school to be more of a target than a reach? Or, is it the case that they are all considered reaches?

Thanks for the help

I know a 168 4.0 that got Chicago off the waitlist. Stanford is weird, but your numbers are solid there if you have any interesting soft factors. Bottom line, you don't really have any true reaches except HYS

Apply to all T14 plus UT, UCLA, USC, Vandy. I predict scads o' money.

CCN is going to be the dividing line for you. Below that will be targets. Above that (HYS) are reaches. CCN is a weird mix of target/reach for you in the sense that I am sure you will be admitted to one of them, but probably not all 3.
