good luck man. Im in the same boat, but didnt study for the lsat, so you have 10 points on me.I should have gotten ready for logic games instead of trying to gut them.
You probably won't get into any of the top 14. There's a fair chance you won't get into the top 25 or so schools and there's a none too slim chance you'll get rejected from all the schools you apply to in the first tier.Apply to LSAT whore schools, and apply to lots of them. Lots of places will ding anyone with a GPA below 3. So you need to cast a wide net.LSAT whore Schools:Northwestern, Fordham, WUSTL, Duke, and Penn. Schools to avoid: Cal, UCLA and any other UC schools, UNC.You may as well throw away your app fee rather than apply to any of the UC's.Check where some other splitters got in on lawschoolnumbers.com for more insight.
With that spread, you will NOT get into any of the top tier schools in larger markets. You'd probably be able to get into the larger public top tier schools, so long as you don't mind living (and potentially working) in the midwest.As for second tier schools, you'd be auto-admit at many, with a fair amount of money. High LSAT = merit aid from second tier schools. That will probably be your best bet, especially if you want to be in a larger market. I do find it interesting the way people analyze the indexing formulas. To me, all the UC schools are very GPA heavy, and while Fordham does favor LSAT, it's not auto-admit even if you're above their 75% mark. I got waitlisted with a couple points above last year's 75%.
