If you actually have a 170 LSAT, I'd think you have a reasonable shot. It's actually probably better to have a LOR from a professor(s) that knows you really well. Stanford is a bit of a black box, so there's never really a "guarantee" per se. But hey.

If your work experience is construction stuff and you have no softs (which is basically impossible, I assume you mean you have mediocre softs) then how do you know Nancy Grace? If she's an acquaintance or a family friend, do not ask her to write you a recommendation. You have a shot with your numbers, but soft factors are important for Stanford and it sounds like you're pretty weak in that area.

^This. Besides, I wouldn't want Nancy Grace to voucher for my law school application given her multiple misconducts as a prosecutor.
