BU- WL
BC- In
W&L- In
W&M- In
UCLA- WL/Out, although they love high gpas so maybe in
UGA- In
UVA (dream school.)- WL

I'd add Cornell as a major reach, GW, Emory, and Fordham as reach-targets, and maybe Tulane?

EDIT: These predictions are for next cycle. If you're just applying now, you're late in the game and most of those waitlists turn to rejections.

Yeah, it's for this cycle (ick). I hadn't expected to bomb the second LSAT or I would have gone in earlier. I'm just hoping for somewhere to go in the fall. Thanks!

BU: 74% (43-15)
W&L: 80% (29-7)

You're probably out at UVA entirely, but I just wanted to say that if it's your dream school you should ED there. It'll give you your only possible chance of getting in; it's still a long shot but not quite as 100% certain of rejection that way.

I'm not the most informed when it comes to this stuff but I have almost the exact same numbers (165/3.75) and I only took the LSAT once and BC straight out rejected me. I applied in October. I think maybe its the higher number of applicants or maybe I just suck. Either way just thought you should know. I got in to UGA, W &M, and W&L. Oh I was rejected at UVA also.

I don't know why anyone would pick UVA as their T14 reach when it has the highest medians (3.85/170) of any school outside HYSCCN. In fact, Stanford (3.87/170) and UVA have basically the same medians, except Stanford's class has better softs. Your T14 reaches should be Cornell and Georgetown PT.

UVA has been known to dip down for ED people especially if the GPA is near 4.0 or the LSAT is 170+.
