So I got a 160 on the Dec LSAt +3.7 GPA. I'm 99.9% sure I'll be retaking this June. I wanna apply to couple of schools though meanwhile.
So with those stats and drops in test takers what do you guys think of my chances of getting into: BC, BU, Notre Dame, Chapel Hill. I have ties to Boston tho

Your stats probably aren't good enough to get you money from BC/BU that make them reasonable options. Notre Dame and UNC are pretty much out due to lack of ties.

Boston College: 253 graduates in Class of 2013. 229 of them got some kind of job (to include "JD advantage", "non-professional", or "other professional" jobs). 82 of those 229 got some kind of job in Boston.
http://www.lawschooltransparency.com/reform/projects/NALP-Report-Database/?class=2013 (click on BC's report and go to table 14)

Boston U.: No NALP report but approx 41.7% of it's Class of 2013 (278 grads) got jobs somewhere in Massachusetts.

BCs numbers look way too optimistic but thanks for the lst link, it's very useful.

Happy to help. All the numbers were pulled from the reports, not just the 82 Boston jobs. The thing to keep in mind is those are ALL the jobs...not necessarily "good" jobs.
