What are my best chances with a 166 & 2.8 gpa? I have a really strong softs and 3 years of WE. Is there any T11 to T20 schools I have a chance at??

maaaybe WUSTL because of the LSAT. They love splitters I hear. Also try Vandy, UCLA, USC etc. I would retake personally because if you get into those schools you'll be going at close to full price which is no fun. WE and softs might help with admission but their impact on scholarships will likely be negligible.

grades??

If you aren't a URM that gets a boost, I'd say 0-5% chance. Your gpa is bad. If any, maybe WUSTL but with no money (and if thats the case, you should NOT go). I doubt any other school will take you.

If you got a 166 you can get a 169. WUSTL gives a lot of money to many people with your stats and a 169. Retake in your case has got to be the best option. It's a 5 question improvement. You can do it.

If you can't retake for whatever reason, and money is important to you, with your stats you can get in with decent money at the T20-30.

Not to shit on your post, but OP isn't a splitter at WUSTl - a 166 is below their median.

Checked LSN and dammit, you're right: their median is 167. I guess I just figured (s)he'd have a shot because I'be heard of people with 3.4/168 getting full rides there.

WUSTL is a very particular case - their median last year was actually a 168, which is the highest among non-T14 schools (and higher than some T14 schools). It's obviously very difficult for a T20 to hold such a high median, so they have to give out full rides.

If you don't have a 168 then you're a lot less valuable to them.

167s we're still getting like 3/4ths tuition. I don't know if wustl will be able to maintain that LSAT. 168 is high! I wonder if they were going to break t17
