I got a new one as well. Moved my 162 up to a 168 in February! I'm thinking this helps my chances a lot!
Congrats Cougs! I didn't go quite as far up as you (162 to 165), but my score now is probably the most reflective of my ability. Are you adding apps now that you have a new score? It's been a long way since September!
Yes, I'm throwing out apps to both WUSTL and Minnesota. Thinking about doing George Washington, too. DC is so expensive to live, but one of my best friends lives there. Of course my other best friend lives in St. Louis.
Even with a 168, my GPA will prevent me from getting into a T14, so I'm thinking WUSTL, UIUC, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota are the best I'm going to do. It all comes down to who gives me the most money. I get in-state at Wisconsin, though, so it would be hard to compete with that. Possibly, I can qualify for reciprocity at Minnesota as well. My super top-choice was Cornell since I want to do employment/labor law (and their clinic is awesome), but I feel like I'm a point or two away from having a chance there, and plus their deadline has already passed. I'm going to call their admissions office up tomorrow though to see if they will let me apply late. It's worth a shot. I have experience in corporate HR plus a MS in HR psychology and I want to use that experience to do labor law.
Edit: And a 165 should be gravy at Iowa. That was their cutoff for fee waivers this year, and looking at the profile shaping up on LSN, there seems to be something special about that number for them this year.
