Numbers: 174, 3.5x
Mild, but not major C&F related to a less than ideal departure from TfA. Possibly mitigated by doing TfA.

Here's the results from this cycle.

Michigan: 18k a year.
NU: 25k a year.
Minn: 35k a year.
University of Washington: 5k a year (in-state).

Still have 30k debt from UG, so I'm pretty averse.
Currently employed as an LSAT tutor with one of the major companies, teaching a course for the June test.

Option 1: Thx but no thx. Tutor, volunteer, take another cut next year, retake to get that 180.
Option 2: Accept, and keep negotiating. Send in the deposit for my current top choice, take the June test, and see if I can negotiate aid assuming I rock it.
Option 3: Smile, and eat the steaming pile of debt.

Stop trying to be cute and just ask direct questions. This thread's ethos is annoying as shit.

But I would say option 2 because I'm not sure how much better you could do with say a 177. It's weird that you didn't nab CCN. If you applied late this cycle, however, I would say shoot for a higher LSAT and apply early next cycle and you should do much better with that 3.5.

Improving on a 174 is an uphill battle, and its not clear there will be any benefits. Your results this cycle are solid for someone with your stats. Also, you'll probably get off some waitlists in the summer. Deposit at your top choice and you can re-assess when orientation gets closer.
