I'm a rising senior interested in applying to law schools this fall. However, I have a problem. My GPA isn't too great. I have a 3.28 GPA from a pretty tough school(Cornell, Comp. Sci major in engineering). I don't have any special reasons for my low GPA. I just didn't try hard enough and partied too much. The good news is that I scored 174 on my LSAT. I also have decent amount of extracurricular stuff if that helps at all.
So I'm just wondering if I'd have reasonable chance at top 10 law schools with my numbers. Obviously, I'm not expecting to get into Harvard or Yale here. My top choice is NYU, but that also seems to be a bit of stretch. How about schools like Michigan, Penn, Chicago, or Duke? I haven't done much research about these schools yet so I'd really appreciate if someone can let me know what my chances are at these schools.
