I would RD to all of the above. If Michigan is your dream school, then it would be best to pursue that option without possible commitments to other schools. You stand a decent chance as it is, and hopefully you wrote a convincing Why Mich. If things don't pan out, you can always try again next year.

GULC and Duke both seem like definite waitlists, not sure if a late ED will help you.

How do you feel about Cornell versus GULC/Duke considering you have a good shot at Cornell? If you're fine with Cornell over GULC/Duke then don't ED.

If you're deadset on T14, probably should retake the LSAT again if this cycle doesn't go well.

especially about ED to Georgetown? I want to do health law and they are really strong in that field.. so would targeted letters/my PS focused on health law help me at all?

Just don't want to risk it if I have a chance at RD at both because then I'd rather go to Michigan


Duke and Michigan have similar numbers so it seems silly to ED to Duke over Michigan if you would much rather prefer to go to Michigan. I think you should just ED to Michigan unless you would be very content on going to Georgetown (especially if you found out later you did get into Michigan).

I'm talking about this cycle- I am too late for Michigan's ED.. I didn't have a high enough LSAT score at the time so I'm trying to decide if it is a better idea to ED to Georgetown or risk RD to Georgetown and Michigan in the hopes I get into Michigan.. but then if I get neither I would have to either accept a lower school or wait until next year

Cornell is your only really good T14 shot. But Tex and Vandy will almost assuredly give you tons of money.
