I am in a similar boat as you with an identical LSAT score, so I can empathize and will respond. Not to be a jerk, all of the stuff you did all sounds really cool, but popular opinion on this site holds that your softs, extracirriculars, research, what have you, don't work miracles much in the application process, but in your case, they may give you a boost. Unfortunately, it is very much a numbers game, even more skewed towards LSAT, ie 165, 3.3 is better than 162, 3.8, regardless of major. You seem like a smart, hardworking person, capable of scoring much higher. Apply though, and retake. You never know who will bite.

Usually I cringe when people say "retake" because I didn't myself and realize how much of a pain in the ass it would be to study for the LSAT again. However, given that you like USC and Emory as your top choices, you're likely going to need a retake in order to pull it off.vIt's also been said around TLS that this could be a good year for getting into reaches due to fewer applicants FWIW
