When you took the LSAT they gave you a range instead of an actual score? That's odd.....

Actually, the answer is going to change depending on the LSAT. Believe it or not, a what's a reach for a 155 may be a safety for a 160. So it's hard to say.

Any geographical preferences?

I would say that it would depend on what region you are looking for.  In the metro NY area, with those scores, Rutgers and Seton Hall might be good schools for you.  But - you should always make sure that there are schools you WOULD feel comfortable attending.  School is out in most places now but go visit their career planning centers and get statistics on where students go on graduation and see if that fits with your career goals.  Then, come the end of January, sit on a class and see if it is a place where you would be happy for three years!
