You're also going to need to hit at (or extremely close to) 170 to be competitive for many of the other schools on your list (Duke, Michigan, GULC, Cornell). Solution: hit 170. Attend UVA.
Then be top quarter of the class so you can have a fighting chance in DC. Easier said than done.
Agreed, but it's tough to bank on DC with this list of schools. UVA (or possibly Duke with a little cash) provides the best bang for the buck in regards to that market, while still providing a decent plan B (i.e. NY).
