Very true.  I must note that you shouldn't disregard those X State University students.  I received a full ride to a powerhouse research state school, performed research within my primary department, pulled a perfect LSDAS from my school, and hit a 177 LSAT.   I'll be starting at H next year or at NYU on a full scholly.  There is power within research institutions. 

I'm going to be brutally honest with you right now.  Even if you hit your target GPA, you will likely need to score at least a 177+ to get into Stanford.  Here's the mean part:  Those who hit that scoring range can sleepwalk their way to a higher GPA than the one for which you're shooting.  The sooner you become realistic the sooner you can start looking at schools that you'll have an opportunity to thrive at.  Unless you are one of the top .0001% of test takers, you will not score a 177+.  I hate to be that guy, but someone needs to be that guy in this situation.
