I think your softs are definitely above average for the t-14 but not elite. This likely means you will perform roughly where your numbers suggest your should. I predict you will be shut out of the t-13 unless you apply early decision somewhere with a perfect app (which I do not think is a good idea for you). I predict the best school you will get accepted into will be one just outside the top 20 schools. Hopefully for your sake I am wrong. Good luck OP!
Will do. Still 2 years away from application time for me.

I'm considering a JD because of my particular research interests and professional goals. Think intersection of law and my particular discipline. It's not unheard of, but definitely uncommon to have the dual qualifications - yet the relationship is very relevant.
I'm mainly interested in part-time programs, although that only leaves Gtown in the top 14.
How far can the best softs take you?
Americorps, TFA, peace corps, military....check
Work for a prestigious organization....check
Beyond those basics, my profile is one in a million, quite literally. For the sake of anonymity, I want to leave it at that because any details would be too specific. You'll have to entertain me and use your imagination, but rest assured, I'm not simply a fighter pilot, spy, neurosurgeon, Trump administration dropout, or ethical hacker. If you were on the admissions committee, one of your thoughts might be that you'll never see another applicant like this again.
I'm not Waldo, Carmen Sandiego, or Nessie. Just curious about what truly unique and diverse softs can do for me despite my numbers.
If you'd consider ED, and don't need big financial aid, seems like you'd benefit from looking at T-20 ED programs. I bet you'd have a good shot ED to get into WU or UCLA and a decent possibility at maybe G'town or Cornell ED. Much above that seems like a stretch if not URM - unless your softs really are so totally amazing that their jaw drops on the floor in which case, good on you and who the heck knows.
