what exactly constitutes a ''reach" school?

wow, it's fairly intimidating reading how well everyone has done on their lsats.  i have a question about my situation.  what exactly constitutes a "reach" school?  is it a school where you have a 50% chance of being admitted or a school where you have a 20% chance of being admitted?  i just took the june 14 lsat and got a 157, which i am content with, but that puts me in a tough situation since so many schools seem to be in a range just a bit higher than where i am.  i got a 3.3 gpa from tulane, and am currently a teacher with teach for america (i have one more year) so i feel i have good work experience, but know that that counts little in the admissions process.  i would like to be in lousiana, texas, florida, d.c., or the new york area ideally.  any thoughts would be appreciated..
