So, I took my LSAT which was a disappointment and now I'm in the process of deciding what schools I should apply to. I'm asking you guys to help me from what you know of the process. I'm non URM, my gpa is only a 3.5, but that's due to 2 semesters where I had a 3.0 and a 3.2 overall GPA, the rest of the semesters are over 3.75. The 3.2 was my 1st semester of college and the 2nd shittier gpa of 3.0 was in the 2nd semester of my sophomore year where I was going through some troubles at home. I'm thinking of writing an addendum, but I'm scared that it'll make me seem like someone who cannot work well in a stressed environment. I took the LSAt 2x, 1st time was a 155, and the 2nd time was a 166, which is a decent score, but not that great also.
I do some humanitarian work such as "feed the hungry" programs in NY, H.O.P.E., did an environmental campaign back in 2005 regarding mercury emissions. Also, my background is kind of unique, with a family of political prisoners and such, which affected my childhood a great deal.
I guess I wish to go to the best school I can get into. I'm wondering if I have a chance at some of the T14 schools? I do not have grand dreams of getting into HYS CCN as I know it will be impossible with my numbers, but what about UMIch and lower.
