I will be applying to law schools this coming fall (for Fall 2013), and I am trying to come up with an appropriate list of schools. As you can see from the subject, I have an abysmally low GPA (2.73). The things that I have going for me are a degree from an ivy league school, three years of work experience in a scientific field, and a good LSAT score (172). I would appreciate any advice regarding the range of schools I should aim to apply for. In particular, I would love to get some examples of the most highly ranked schools that I should consider as reasonable reach schools and the most highly ranked schools that I should feel secure considering safety schools. I want to aim for the highest schools I can get into, but I also want to be able to count on getting in somewhere!
apply very, very broadly. like from WUSTL/Illinois range to the 70s. Anywhere you think you could live, apply to.
