I don't know about schools outside of California. However, I know that for Cal. schools like Southwestern and Loyola you really need a 155+ to be competitive. Southwestern and Loyola recieved almost 10,000 apps combined last year. Southwestern made a point not to give outright offers to anyone under 153, they waitlisted many in the low 150's only a few exceptions were eventually admitted. There are of course exceptions to the rule. However, I know that apps are again on the rise and you can expect the same level of scrutiny. I believe Southwesterns accpetance stat was like 21% last year which is a fifteen year low.
You may have a better shot at, Whittier, Chapman and Cal Western.
