There are a lot of places that will eat your GPA for your potential LSAT, but it's really hard to say who's going to be willing to make that trade in any given year.

You might want to expand your search outside of CA for best results.

This is true, there's a lot more evidence of schools going with a higher LSAT or at least Waitlisting it, opposed to very low LSATs and 4.0s.  ... Being that LSAT is more standardized and thus, more comparable.  So it's worth a shot at most schools if you're a couple points above the LSAT median.

Thanks for all the advice JOhnny Cash, the consensus then seems to be that we splitters are pretty much in the air when it comes to predicting admission.

It is true that splitters are much more unpredictable than other candidates....  However, look at www.lawschoolnumbers.com and view some of the graphs.  You'll see that even if there is a bit more variation regarding splitters, a lot of schools still demonstrate some very solid patterns...  That said, your GPA might be low enough that no amount of traditional acceptance patters can give you a high degree of confidence.
