I would ED to UVA. That in my opinion would be the best school you could get into IF you: (1) hit your target score and (2) apply early. Also, I have a feeling Cornell might admit you late.

I'd advise you to take Georgetown and make the most of it.

With those stats you're actually fairly fortunate to have gotten into GULC. EDing may make a difference at a better school, but unless you have a compelling reason to wait, you should probably take GULC. EDing elsewhere means paying sticker wherever you ED, so your decision is between a sure shot at GULC sticker now vs. a possible shot at a higher-ranked T14 at sticker later.

Something to be aware of is that URMs with both numbers being low generally don't do well. To get into solid T10 territory you'd need to bring your LSAT up substantially. Unless you're absolutely sure you can do that, you should go for GULC. Even then, it won't help you move up too much.

Take what you've got. You're not likely to do much better.

I'm shocked you got into Georgetown with those numbers congrats. Also which T14 would you like to go to? Or it doesn't matter any t14 will do? If you just care that the school's a t14 I would say you're best shot is Cornell next cycle. but do not apply late like you did this cycle. you really hurt your chances by doing that.
