You can go as high as CCN with those numbers. Needn't retake.

First of all, thanks for answering me. Is this "In" if I ED even with my stats as they are?
I should note softs aren't great, I've worked 40+ hours all 4 years and haven't really had time for many extracurriculars.

That in itself is a great PS topic. You'll be fine. Don't ED.

Perhaps you should still retake. I do think that your chances for Georgetown are great. But it also sounds like you are capable to scoring higher. A higher score can do a lot for admissions and scholarships to schools with better job prospects.

Working 40+ hours per week is an impressive soft. If I were you, I wouldn't apply ED to Georgetown. Like another poster mentioned, you have a good shot at many schools in the T14.

No ED. No retake. Just "In."

However, you should still retake if you were practicing higher. If you think you can get a 168, get it, and get more $ or a better school (although you can probably get a better school with your #s anyway).

What type of URM are you? Don't ED anywhere.

I'm going to echo the others and suggest that you don't ED. You won't get any money from them and you miss out on the possibility of CCN. You'll get a few T14s as it is (GULC included).

Retake is a good idea, if only for the bigger scholarship offers.

Good luck.
