Can anyone tell me anything about Quarles and Brady?  Beyond what is available on NALP and the like, of course.

After browsing my law school reports that were just sent out, I noticed that for the one school I applied to that I had a targeted letter for, that school was sent ONLY the targeted letter.    Is this an error on the part of LSAC?  I had two other general letters that should have been sent to that school... what is the way to fix this?  Obviously, I cannot just send the letters over to the school because they were sent straight to LSAC.  Thanks all!

Where should I go next fall? / Disappointing

I'm sure many of you have heard plenty of people with this same story, but here goes...
I just recently decided on law school, so I had about a month to study for the LSAT.  I took the Kaplan diagnostic and got a 171.  I came away pretty optimistic, getting my hopes up for something upwards of that.  All the practice tests were at that score or better (and yes, I was completely honest taking them, timed, etc.) I had done all the research on top notch schools, but then when I got my score back, 161.  I was devastated.  Still don't completely understand what caused me to crap the bed, but oh well.
So, I'm picking up the pieces and trying to make a decision on where to go.  My GPA is 3.66 in Engineering and as I said, my LSAT was a 161.  My recommendations are good (in my opinion at least), and the rest of my resume isn't to shabby, but I am a white male. 
My question is this... can I still get in to a really good law school?  I figure I'm in good shape for all my in state schools (I'm from Florida).  I've given up hope at the HYS breed (obviously!), but do I have any chance at a school like UT-Austin?  How about Michigan?  Georgetown?  Or are these just pipe dreams?  Is there any school that has a reputation for taking things like difficulty of UG major or "soft factors" into account more than the norm? 

I would appreciate any input you guys could give me.  I have gleaned so much information from this board and you all have made this process a little less scary.  Thank you all.
