Need Advice

I need some help guys. First-time poster, I discovered this site a few months ago and it has been enormously helpful in the application process. Here's my situation:

I have a 167/3.65 from a mediocre state college. I applied ED to UVA and got rejected. I've already applied to Berkeley, Michigan, and Cornell as well as many schools 15-25. So now I'm thinking of blanketing the rest of bottom of the T14 - Duke, Northwestern, Georgetown, and maybe Penn. I know I'm a longshot for all of these schools so I'm thinking of applying ED to either Georgetown or Duke's round 2 ED. I'm also considering applying to GW ED and get the full tuition scholarship.

Anybody have any insight as to how much easier it is to get into Duke or Georgetown ED rather than RD? Would you go to Duke or Georgetown without any scholarship money over a Full ride from GW? What should I do?

I'm also thinking about retaking the LSAT in Feb, my score is 3 years old so it's been a while since I've studied for it and I really don't want to go through that whole process again but if I study my ass off I might be able to improve my score by 3 or 4 points which might help me get off some waitlists or at least get some more scholly money.


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I've been pretty calm through the process but I'm starting to stress out.

Thanks

Sorry about that, I reposted this in the admissions section. Is there a way to delete the original post?

Sorry, but you are out at T-14, GW, and nearly all T-20, save for WUSTL. You need to retake and apply next year. Only way this year is happening is if you kill the LSAT and get a 173+. However, if you get a 170+ and apply early next year (in Sept.), you should be in just about everywhere you mentioned without ED (save for Berkeley, out I think). GW ED gives freeride.

Definitely not getting a full scholarship to GW. Probably a 1/2 ride bud.

Yup, you aren't getting into any of those schools listed. You'll likely get GW RD, but ED is not happening.
