You're not a splitter. Splitters have high LSATs and low GPAs.

Why are you applying so freaking late? Your odds everywhere go up significantly by just waiting until next cycle.

Everything I've come across says there are two types of splitters, a high LSAT and low GPA and the reverse?

I applied everywhere in about december, but didn't have a LSAT to report until after Feb.

Splitter: Low GPA, high LSAT
Reverse splitter: High GPA, low LSAT

You are neither. You have a low LSAT and a mediocre to decent GPA. Even as an NA, you probably won't get into a school worth going to and ESPECIALLY not by applying this late.

1. You should retake. Pretty much any school that takes a 153 LSAT is not worth going to.

2. How did you decide that list of schools? Law schools are regional. Do want to work in IA? If not you shouldn't have applied to IU-B. Do you want to work in OH? If not you shouldn't have applied to Case Western. Do you want to work in MS? If not you shouldn't have applied to Ole Miss. etc, etc. Figure out where you want to work and apply to schools in that area. The only reason to apply to schools in places you don't want to work is to get scholarships from those schools and use those scholarships as leverage to get scholarship money from the schools in the area that you do want to work.

3. I'm fairly sure that rec letters sent through LSAC are supposed to be confidential and your recommenders are not supposed to show them to you.
