Your WUSTL offer is pretty good for your numbers. You might try negotiating for more. Going there on that scholly isn't a bad outcome at all.
But with a few more points and a little WE, NW comes into play. I'll also echo the other posters in saying you should consider GT, and I say that as an atheist myself.
yeah, i guess i was a little flippant. sorry.
OP, you're right about those data. you're just in a very unusual position (URM super-splitter.)
with a year off, better w/e, and a few more points, NW and georgetown become absolutely feasible, and i would pick either of those over either of your current options. especially NW.
this seems particularly relevant, given your stated desire to work in desirable positions in NY/DC/CA.
still, as romo pointed out, big scholarship at WUSTL with a 3.0x is definitely a solid outcome.
