With a 160, your list is pretty good.

Not that poli sci/creative writing at Pitt is the most rigorous program in the world, but you're still clearly no dummy with a GPA like that. If there's any way you can get a 165+ (perhaps with another year of prep and a class?), then you're looking at SIGNIFICANTLY better options.

If you can get even mid-160s, ED to Penn. They'll quite likely take you ED with that GPA.

People are going to be reluctant to give you more specific advice until you have an actual LSAT score. However, if you're not going to a T14, you should try to go to a school in the region you wish to practice in when you graduate. For Philly you should be focused on schools in the northeast that will have at least regional name recognition; if not Penn, then perhaps BC or BU.

You should also be aware that the DC market is the hardest to get into (NYC is also highly desired, but the total market hiring there is larger, making it a bit easier to get into). A lot of folks even at T14s that want DC aren't able to get into firms there.
