I have a 160 LSAT and 3.53 Cumul. GPA. I am sure that I could go somewhere in the Tier 1 (top 50), but I don't have any desire to go to say, BYU. With that said, would it be better to go for the higher ranked school... or the lower ranked school in the area you want to practice? I am sure this is a broken record of a question, but I really want your input.
I don't want to be anywhere West of the Mississippi and I would love to stay in the Midwest (Chicago, Indiana, Wisconsin) and/or DC area. Any thoughts for a list of schools (maybe 10-20) that I should seriously consider applying to?
