GPA: 3.6; LSAT: 163; Will they even look at my application?

Aside from my scores, I am a double major in English (3.9 GPA) and math (3.3 GPA). I've skipped two grades in school and took dual enrollment classes in high school, so I'll have both of my bachelor's degree by the time I am twenty. I am an honors student, founder of the Pre-law club on my campus which I have been the president of for two years, and am one out of five of the student judges in a state-wide moot Court competition. I've never really cared much about scores even though I've maintained pretty good ones; my main goal is just to enjoy myself and work to be a bomb attorney. I live in rural Appalachia and spent most of my life on a cattle farm; I have worked my tail off to even go to undergrad, much less grad school. But will law schools even care that I skipped grades, or did all these extra curriculars? Will the T14 even bother looking at my application with my scores so close to average? Will they care about where I come from? I know I'm kind of an oddly specific case, but I really don't know where to set my expectations.

    Being from rural Appalachia is a plus.

    Otherwise all that really matters are your grades and test scores.

    Ditch the math classes since your grades in them aren't that great.

    Then study, study, study for the LSAT and retake it. A 163 is not enough for the T14, period.
