Sorry for double posting, but it doesn't look like you can edit your posts here.
The reason I am asking this tedious question is because usually the answer is that soft factors do not matter, but this answer is usually given to people in the opposite situation. Poor LSAT score or GPA, but good outside of school activities.
I have been researching and it looks like people who apply to top ranked schools tend to have similarly impressive extracurrics: minor leadership roles, writers for the school paper, etc. So that the bar is raised higher at those schools, if that makes sense.
Just looking for anecdotal evidence about people who have applied in situations similar to mine.
