Hmmm... not sure what to say, here. It's going to be a fight for you, especially right now.
My first choice school is a 4T (due to location and my personal circumstances), and I was accepted with a 3.01/159. However, they were wait-listing other applicants. So, it's competitive now, even for T4s.
Your GPA is really going to be a hindrance. Your only shot is to beat the living snot out of the LSAT. I mean, you will probably need to pull down like a 165 or better unless you can find a place that will read your personal statement.
I wouldn't count too much on that, though. Admissions is pretty much all based on LSAT and GPA. The US News Rankings have really reduced it to that and very little else.
As a side note, I applied to a T2 and just got my rejection notice. I think during other times, I would have gotten in. (I actually got into the MBA program at the same school, and at the time, the MBA program was #47 in USN&WR.) However, with the crappy economy, EVERYBODY is applying to law school. Not just all the recent baccalaureate graduates, but folks with 2 years worth of unemployment benefits, folks who just got let go but have a severance package, etc.
Down economies produce an abundance of applicants to schools.
There are certainly schools that will take a chance on you, but they're way down in the 4T. If you're determined not to go to a 4T school, I don't mean to discourage you, but I don't think you have a realistic shot.
Now, that being said, 4T has a few things going for it.
First, if you graduate first in your class from any school, you will get opportunities. Might even be able to work biglaw.
Thing is, you need to graduate maybe 1st, 2nd or 3rd in your class to get those opportunities from a T4, where you might be able to get them with a top 10% from a T2 or a top 20% from a T1.
Second, you CAN transfer. If you do well in 1L year, there is some T2 school, somewhere, that will let you transfer in. For transfer applicants, LSAT and GPA are very small factors and sometimes they are complete non-factors.
Now, this only applies if you show up to your T4 school and kick some major butt. However, if that's not what you're planning on doing, then it won't matter what school you graduate from: you will not get a job in the law unless your dad's name is on the letterhead of the firm.
Right now, Law School is a really dog-eat-dog proposition. Graduate at the top? You'll do well. If you skate on through and graduate middle of the pack, you're going to be screwed. It'll basically much worse than a graduate degree in the humanities, because at least with a Ph.D. in Humanities, you can teach somewhere.
