It looks like I'm going to graduate with a 3.2GPA and LSAT score of 175. I've worked all four year 30-40+ hours. I studied abroad in Spain for a semester. I'm going back to Spain for a year after I graduate. I will be working abroad with the CIEE program. In addition I was in the Tae Kwon Do club for two years at my school. Also through out my school career I have been sick a lot due to my immune system. With a strong application what are my chances of getting into New York University with ED. Also if not NYU what other t14 schools are possible. Be brutal I want the honest to god truth.

Congrats on the 175. Looks like you have a good shot at NYU, although it's by no means certain. I'd counsel against applying ED, though. The admissions chance advantage from applying ED is not that high, and if you get in ED, you have no leverage with which to negotiate scholarships. If you apply RD, on the other hand, you could end up with multiple T14 offers, which you could use to get scholarship money from at least one school.

Agree that ED isn't worthwhile in your case. Apply from Chicago through Georgetown. Consider some slightly lower ranked schools in a geographic area that is of interest to you in hope of securing substantial scholarship money.
