3.6 ugpa and 170 on LSAT. Usual softs (pre-law society etc) and worked almost full time all four years of undergrad. From WA. This is for sure my number one so i'll be applying early.

Sure, and probably with a decent scholarship. You stand a good chance at breaking the T14 as well, for what that's worth.

Same stats here. Got Michigan, Berkeley, Penn, Duke, and Cornell, plus some decent scholarship money.

Unless you really want to go to school in Boston, you should at least apply higher.

Put together a carefully crafted application, and you might really surprise yourself.

Agreed with rest. If you absolutely HAVE to go to BC, then at least apply for higher ranked schools so you can potentially leverage scholarship money. No need to ED (if they have ED).

It's probably with applying to BU as well. If by chance they offer you more scholarship money that could be a nice leveraging chip.

You should be fine at BC. FWIW, one of my (UG) professors said that if you want to work in Boston, BC/BU will serve you much better than most schools, even the lower t14.
