You should almost certainly be in. You're setting your sights too low, if anything. Throw an app the way of Columbia, NYU, Penn, UVA, UMich, Cornell... have fun in the T14, most probably with money.

Similar applicants got about $80k from Vandy this past cycle. Uva seems to go after splitters and reverse splitters to game their medians, so I's say you have a good shot there. Not sure about $$.

Columbia and NYU love the high lsat people, so you have a good chance there.

Penn seems to have a GPA median higher than some other schools, but with apps declining everywhere, you're in a good position since you're LSAT is above their 75th percentile.

tl;dr: apply everywhere from CCN down. No reason not to.

Agree w/ applying to everything CCN and down, although CLS and Chicago are definitely long shots.

Why the particular interest in Vandy? If you are interested in practicing in the south, you have a very strong chance of admission at UVA, which would arguably set you up best in the region. Your GPA might be a little on the low side for Duke, but its worth a shot.
