If you get a 162 ED to NYU, or if you are more risk averse UVA . Apply ASAP to Cornell, you should get Fordham regardless of where you fall in that range. If you get over a 166 don't apply ED anywhere, just blanket the top 14.
Is Fordham very URM friendly? I read that they value GPA more than other schools, which is why I'm not as confident about them.
NYU may be out of reach. I took the LSAT last February and scored a 152. To the best of my knowledge I believe NYU averages LSAT scores.
With your ivy undergrad, good softs, and Black male status, you certainly have a good shot of getting into NYU with a 162+ LSAT and ED. If you get a 165 I'm almost certain you would be accepted ED. As far as Fordham, if you pull a 160 and apply ASAP you should be fine. You really need to checkout blsd. UVA ED and Cornell are your best shots in the top 14.
Thanks. I've lurked BLSD as well, but find TLS way more active. I guess I should work as much as I can on my PS till I get my score, because it may actually make a difference in my case.
