I think you will be fine at Hastings and a real good chance at William and Mary according to lawschoolnumbers.  I would say go there and look up last years graphs.  I think UCLA may be tough, and possibly USC too.  The others I think you could definitely get in but you may also get rejected.  So I would say maybe just one more safety or something but I think you're safe at Hastings and probably W&M. 

Have you looked up these schools for last years numbers at www.lawschoolnumbers.com yet?  I think all your schools are definitely within reach but I don't know how much your engineering degree will help or hurt.  I understand they do recognize the GPA from your degree is a bit harder than others but schools are still number whores.

I applied to UC Davis today.  I hope that is considered a safety according to my stats
