Uhm...166 is good. So unless you're dead set on T14, or you UGPA sucks...then I really think you are over-worrying...
that first rejection is hard to take though... I was the same way when Texas dinged me... but trust me, acceptances are coming.
My UGPA sucks - 2.89 according to LSAC. (engineering major and I have an excuse for the first two years, but I don't think it's going to help much.) I've done all sorts of undergrad level coursework afterwards with excellent grades, but of course none of that matters.
Anyway, I'm feeling better now. I was pretty down when I wrote that first post. I didn't expect the first rejection to hit me like that. But, BC was one of the schools closer to my reach, even though it was still a reach. If BC isn't willing to forgive my crappy UGPA - at least to defer me instead of an outright ding - I can't reasonably expect schools like Cornell or Duke to look twice either. I'm not URM. I have some soft factors, but nothing phenominal. (I thought my soft factors were decent when I first applied, but after staring at LSD and LSN for so long, I think they are pretty mediocre at best.)
