Is Michigan out of the picture if I do a gpa/lsat addendum? Solid recs from a t20 undergrad, decent ps and softs (sga, president of a couple clubs, etc), 3 years work exp in banking.

Any advice much appreciated!

I would not ED to Michigan. There is no attached scholarship with it if you were to get in.
But to answer your question, Mich is a major reach for you.

What's preventing you from a retake? Your GPA isn't on the strong-side, and your LSAT (while being a competitive score) doesnt make up for your GPA.
I dont think IBanking is a good enough soft either - unless you've closed on some incredible deals and articul8 on your experiences within your application ( just my opinion tho)

You have a shot thou - undergrad institutions really do matter and the letter of recs ( if from professors) can make up for a lot

Nothing is preventing me. I just wanted to know whether the test is something I will need to continue to study for or whether I can still get in by applying early as a URM.

And I don't consider it all that good of a soft, trust me. It's decent at best.

I agree. Not a bad LSAT by any means but you have to balance your GPA out. With your GPA Michigan is probably looking for at least a 166.
