If you can, it'd probably be worth it to apply early next cycle.

Even with a 160 you are out at Vandy, Emory, and probably W&M and W&L especially this late.

I figured those were long shots and was not banking on attending any of those schools. Any thoughts on some of the lesser ranked schools?

Given where most of those schools are, is there any reason Wake Forest is not on your list? It is a reach, but I'd throw an app in, especially if you decided to apply next cycle. I know a few people who have applied really late to Wake and were accepted with similar numbers, though they did have to spend a little time on the WL. Applying this late I'm not sure if a 160 is going to help you a whole lot with most of those schools, but it is worth a shot.

What is your residency status BTW?

Good. However, if I were you I'd would aim higher than 160.
