I'd say around 50/50 chance of waitlist versus acceptance. Little chance of reject.

I was accepted with a lower GPA, same LSAT. You definitely have a chance. Good luck!

I feel weird about applying to GWU with a >170, knowing you could have gotten it for free if you applied ED.

This. My GPA would make that impossible.

I got in with a 169 and a 3.05 and I applied at the very end of November. So I think if you applied in early December you should be fine.

So...even better if I apply in early October???

With my higher LSAT score help outweigh the lower (and sub-3) GPA?

It would seem so. The only way to find out is to try.
