If i want to practice in the south, and probably Atlanta, would it still be wise to attend Cornell? How would you rank Cornell, Duke, Emory for job prospects in Atlanta and Florida. Does Duke place well in DC? Will Emory place in DC at all?

The lower T14s are still somewhat regional - you'll be able to get a job in your region coming from one of them, but going to Emory will be much more useful in terms of making connections and networking in the area, and the name is more familiar (not to mention it will have a larger alumni base in the area). If you're worried about ranking, shoot for UVa, Duke, or Vandy. UGA is a good choice for Georgia as well, from what I've heard.
Also, bro, with a 166/3.3 I'm fairly sure your chances at NU and Cornell are nil. Try to bring your PT average up to the mid-upper 170s before retaking. Applying late + potential hit on your LSAT because of nerves (which would put you in the upper 160s again) could = a waste of time. Don't retake until you're absolutely ready. Trust me, I learned this the hard way.
