These seem above average to me! Is there a clear reason why you'd like to go to law school?

The reason I ask is that softs really can shine if they paint a clear reason WHY you want to go to law school. For example, if I worked in government and I want to go into public interest law...that's a pretty natural fit that can be summarized quite nicely in a personal statement.

Not to rain on your parade, but I had some very different, but somewhat similarly "strong softs" and a 167 with a slightly lower but pretty similar GPA, and this last cycle I got denied across the T14, with wait lists at Cornell and Northwestern. I was in at UT with their out of state waiver (you get in state tuition) and in everywhere else I applied (I did not apply to UCLA, Vandy, Wash U) with a 2/3rds or better scholarship.

My point is, you will probably perform very close to your stats. Which are average for the bottom of the T14 and this last cycle has become more competitive than the ones on MYLSN you referenced your stats against. Result? Probably going to be looking at a lower T14 acceptance if lucky at close to sticker or a decent scholarship to UCLA and UT.

I would highly recommended you think strongly about what you are willing to do before you apply. If you get into say Cornell and you think "oh I will only go if I get X scholarship to make it work financially" and then get in at sticker, you will be able to put some of the emotion aside in your decision.

Feel free to PM me with any questions or more details:

Thanks for sharing! I've known individuals with the same numbers who have had different results, I guess it depends on the application!

But yeah I did think about it! Fortunately because of my work and background, I don't have to worry about it financially. The only thing I'm thinking about it is will this school benefit me in providing a strong pathway to a career.

The only one of these "strong softs" that law schools might care about is your published research but softs are dumb and law schools don't care about them.

Sorry to ruin that for you.
