I'm sure you'll get a lot of this - but have you considered sitting out this round and retaking the LSAT? That GPA could do a lot for you, but the LSAT is going to hurt you.

I think 157 is probably too low, but its worth a shot.

Now I don't know what to do. What if I apply for ED at UVA and get in, but then BU or some other well-ranked school offers me $$? Is UVA worth the risk?

As sexy as that GPA is, that LSAT is really low. I don't think you should be thinking about $$ offers from BU AND getting into UVA. LSP has you at less than 5% and LSN doesn't have any applicants with that crazy of a split. Did you study (hard) for at least 6 weeks? Or did you just take it? I find it hard to believe that as much as UVA likes high GPAs, it would really take that LSAT.

Whoa, you are getting way ahead of yourself. That will not happen. You are a huge long shot for both of these, so $$ should be out of the question. To answer your last question, UVA is worth the risk.
