3.7/ 170 gives you a shot at the bottom half of the T14. Every additional point helps your chances considerably.

People will suggest asking again when you have an actual LSAT score.

1. withdrawals don't matter. (unless you have a shitton of them.)
2. 3.7 is alright, but you'll need a good LSAT to bolster it.
3. get an official LSAT score.
4. your major doesn't matter, unless it's IP compatible.
5. your criminal history shouldn't matter; just disclose properly.
6. your work experience is whatever, unless you can really sell it on the resume or in an essay.

only thing needs to be noted is to ensure that your withdrawal is listed as non-punitive otherwise LSAC factors it in as a F which brings down gpa. If it just says W on your transcript you should be fine.

I think if you late withdrawal and take a F. Different schools have different policies.

Your GPA is sufficient for everything below the top 3, you really should be aiming for 173+ but it of course is by no means a given.
