Seton hall
Suffolk
Willamette
UBaltimore
NYLS
Syracuse
UMiami
William and Mary

For DC, the only school I would even contemplate going to is W&M. Even then I would never go there without a significant scholly.

I wouldn't go to UM or Suffolk even with substantial scholarship.

I second this. ED to GULC, Fordham or GWU. One of those schools might bite for their PT (or maybe you even get lucky and get into the FT program). If you get into the PT program, you can easily transfer to FT. Write a good addendum about your grades and a diversity statement that places prime focus on something other than your ethnicity. ED is only worth it at top schools, especially if you're URM, because the cycles are so unpredictable.

With your URM, status, you have no idea how money is going to play out at different schools.
You should apply broadly to schools that are in markets that you are interested in. And then maybe apply to a few reaches as well.



Hence my advice that if OP is going to ED, he might as well ED at a reach. That will be the most effective use of OP's ED status. He might even get lucky and get into one of them (GULC, GWU or Fordham). Stranger things have happened.

You should only ED at schools that are worth paying sticker price. How much prep did you do for the LSAT? Retake is pretty standard advice here.
