Based on your LSAT I would think you would have a good chance of getting into at least one of the lower T14 schools, probably not with money though. Based on what I've read UVA is pretty spliter friendly, granted most of the people I've seen weren't as extreme as you. Usually 170s and around 3.0 GPAs, but I'd think those extra 5 LSAT points might be enough to make up the GPA difference.

NU seems most likely from my reasarch (I have a higher GPA but still sub 3 and a lower LSAT but still 170 plus so I end up dredging through that part of lawschoolnumbers), though you might want to think about taking a year or two of work experience, it will strengthen your application and it will mean less debt since a scholarship is unlikely at the top schools.

There really just isn't enough data to really make a good prediction for such an extreme splitter. I would apply at CCN and below - Berkeley and then probably UCLA/USC, UT, Vandy and WUSTL, depending on where you want to end up working. I think you will get one of NU, Cornell or GULC but it may come after being WL'd.

Your chances are very unpredictable, but HYSCCN are almost definitely out. Apply broadly and hope for the best
