It is very unlikely that you will be accepted into those law schools. That being said I think you might want to consider a different school of law. You might want to ask yourself, "What makes a school so prestigious is it the faculty or is it the students?" The faculty can only inform students and have them do research on topics, but the student has to apply themselves in order to do well and graduate. If all of the students got Fs then how would people see that school? My guess is that it would be a lot lower on the list.
If you look at Cleveland Marshall College of Law you will find that is has the 15th largest law library in the United States. It has also produced many highly esteemed judges, lawyers, and philanthropists. This goes the same for many universities that never make the "list" a school is only as good as its students.
