I am applying this fall (enrolling in the fall of 2011), and here are my stats:

Florida resident - no regional preference for practicing
3.85 (University of Florida; Sports Management, Business)/163
Pretty good softs (involvement in college, community service, 2 yrs. work experience, etc.)
Strong LOR's

My initial list of schools includes the following:

Florida State
Florida
American
Georgia
UNC
Fordham
GWU
Emory
Boston
Wash U (MO)
Southern Cal

UT Austin
UCLA
Georgetown
UC Berkeley

Thanks for the help!
