Since I'm from Los Angeles, and looking at schools close to home, I would say from all my research, if you can get an LSAT score in the high 160s (like 166+) then you have a great shot at some of those schools.

I hope this helps

I would recommend you use the admission calculator available at lsac.org, or else horumd.com, to give you a sense for the GPA/LSAT combinations that you will need to give you the best chances of admission at each of these schools. As I'm sure you already know if you troll these boards, the heavier weighting will go to your UGPA, but your GGPA will be considered as a soft factor in the overall review of your application.

You may also want to consider adding UC Irvine and U of San Diego to your list if you're willing to go as far out of LA proper as Whittier :)

Best of luck!
