3.70/170 Where to ED?

GPA: 3.7 (Finance)
LSAT: 170
Softs: NCAA athletics, bilingual, student council of business school, congressional intern, national honor society, quite a bit of community service.
Non-URM (White as humanly possible)

Where should I ED? My top choices are Columbia, NYU, and Virginia. (I grew up on the east coast and want to stay out here)

Thanks in advance.

This is relevant to my interests as well, quite similar

Columbia = almost no shot / no shot
NYU = decent shot
Virginia = in!

If you ED to any school outside of the T6, I would bet you will have yourself an early acceptance!

Where would be my best shot in the T14 (excluding G AND CORNELL)?

MVP in my opinion, but if you're really interested in getting a better view of your chances, you should take a look at lawschoolnumbers.com and compile the numbers for similar-profile candidates.

OP here. Do you think it would be advantageous to ED, or do I have a decent shot at the T14 without ED? I have looked at LSN and LSP but want to know if my softs would give me a bump?

You have a very good shot at the T-14 without ED. If you really fall in love with one school from MVPDN I'd ED there, otherwise I would just apply broadly and let the chips fall where they may.

You have a very not good shot at UVA without ED but it depends if say you'd prefer maybe getting a fairly large scholarship to Cornell or being locked into UVA. The former may be better but is less safe.

You can double-dip since UVA keeps their ED option open so long. Pick one of CLS/NYU and ED there, and then if they reject you, ED to UVA.

this is true, but you won't be as locked in as if you applied pre-thanksgiving.

Would I be a candidate for any scholarship money at a T14?
