You do realize that you are committed to UIUC since you applied ED, right? even if they dont negotiate with you and another school ups their offer to something better. You should let the other schools know of your ED acceptance asap- and withdraw.


For you, I suggest this:

EDIT: Also, I have decided to retake the LSAT in June and to put serious study time in it this time, so hopefully that LSAT score will go from borderline to solid in a couple of months.


This is pretty flawed. You are assuming the same #/% of students at Emory want to stay in ATL or GA, when Emory draws far more people from outside the state than UGA or GSU. Also much more likely that those who come from out of state will leave after.

That was the assumption I drew from evidence not vice versa. Based on my experience with the Atlanta market, Emory law students in the past have alienated the current ones from certain opportunities, particularly in PI/clerkships and midlaw (BigLaw is unaffected, obviously.)

Also, Tulane is a safety for me because of factors unrelated to numbers. I would rather not disclose why, since I don't think it is relevant.
