In at UVA ED for sure, potentially in without ED since you're a resident.

My guess is in at the rest, some with $$. Also, I believe D1 athlete is considered a pretty decent soft.

Any chance at other schools in the top ten?

And do I lose leverage in scholarship consideration if I apply ED to UVA? I'm not even sure if I can be considered a candidate for scholarship consideration, but I'd like to keep all of my options open.

I would say you have a shot at all of MVPD (and N if you have post-grad work experience) though none of them are a lock. (And I believe Duke is kind of a GPA whore.)

UVA claims that you don't lose scholarship consideration if you ED, but the truth is they don't have to try to entice ED admits with $$. That said, I don't know whether you have a shot at money from them anyway. ED is tricky because you do get a boost, but then you lose the chance to weigh your options.
