One point higher than 25% LSAT and nearly 100% GPA for this school so is it possible to get off?

depends on what the school needs, if they are having trouble keeping their gpa median then you have a good chance.

Yeah I just got waitlisted from Chicago so I really want to get in!
I got waitlisted from a bunch of schools though, so general advice would be appreciated.

Do you think if it is a good idea to tell the school that I will attend at sticker? This applies to Uchicago

Retake the LSAT if it's that low compared to your GPA and get into Chicago next year with a ton of scholarship money instead of at sticker debt.

Be positive & proactive: Send in your seat deposit & first semester tuition check. Otherwise, request an on-campus interview.

Already used up my 3 chances...I don't think I can take it a fourth time now right?

Edit: I would love to try a fourth time though :(
