First, please do not limit yourself to applying to only the top 5 ranked (US News) law schools. Consider applying to the top 12, 13 or 14 law schools. Why ? Because you do not just want an acceptance, you want an affordable option as well.

Identify your target market geographically & apply to any law school which places well in that market or markets.
