do you have a score in between 168-172, or are you speculating? you should be solid for schools in the 20-30 range, possibly a shot at some 15-20

This. The difference between a 168 and a 172 with that GPA will mean the difference between having a shot at the lower T14 or none at all.

You took it five times and got every possible score in the 168-172 range?

If bottom of your range: WUSTL, schools ranked 20-30 at your discretion, and any strong regional schools you'd attend with scholarship

If top of your range: ED to a bottom-T14; UVA is your safest bet

On the other hand, your most productive option is to get to work on your PS, LORs, addenda, etc. and come back when you have a real score in hand. Until then, it's all just speculation.

168 - WUSTL
169 - WUSTL
170 - UVA ED
171 - UVA ED
172 (w/ possible WE) - UVA or NU ED

There you go.

Where do you want to work (which region)? If you would work in Texas, you're pretty much an auto-admit at SMU and U of H.

Really? That seems like a stretch with that GPA.

It is a stretch, but probably the best bet for the T14.

Yes, but it's in the realm of possibility. Michigan's median LSAT is 169. Though I got to believe they are trying to increase it.

169 is too low for mich with a 3.2, even with ED.

But realistically the only shot at the T14. It is possible so if a 3.2/169 really wants the T14 ED'ing Michigan is the best bet that isn't a complete waste.

Make sure you have some work experience before wasting an ED on Northwestern.

Probably. But, there really isn't a better place to use that ED, so why not. A Non trad with a 3.3 got in RD, two years ago a 169/3.2 got in RD. So it's not impossible.
