-One year of work experience (security consulting with a bunch of former government bigshots).
-Should have excellent LORs. Very Positive feedback on PS. Trilingual (Arabic and French-fluent). Typical clubs, frat, etc.

The Schools
-NYU Early Decision
-Chicago
-Berkeley
-Penn
-Virginia

NYU - In (cycle over)

but just for the hell of it.

Chicago - WL then Reject
Berkely - WL then In
Penn - Random WL (gotta be atleast 1 right?)
UVA - In
Duke - In
NW - In
Cornell - In w/ $10k per year
GULC - In
Texas - Residency?
BU - In w/ $25k per year

Explain why you don't want scholarships? Or am I misunderstanding you?

Gotcha. For some reason, I thought you meant you didn't want any $$$ from NYU.

These are very similar numbers to mine (3.96 and 170/167). I did ED at Columbia instead but I'm not really expecting to have much of a hope there. NYU or Berkeley would be amazing, but honestly I'm just hoping for Michigan or Penn. From looking at LSN it seems like law schools admissions are generally unpredictable. Obviously we have a good chance at 7-14, but people with just as good numbers have been rejected from every school in the T14 many times (or at least wait-listed).

Basically I'm very anxious about this whole thing and protecting myself psychologically.
Good luck though...maybe we'll end up at the same school :)

Good thing you won't have to find out and regret it once you have withdrawn your apps. :P

No, NYU is one of the few schools that is very retake averse (they say they average), but I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you. Your numbers look fine for them.

People have said anecdotally that they can go either way (either treating an applicant like the average or like the highest), but I have no first hand info on this.
