Don't ED anywhere. URM cycles are unpredictable and you could end up somewhere "better" than Gtown with $$. Blanket the T20, but you'll probably end up at a T14 with some kind of scholly. Your reaches are CCN.

Sure I do. Blanket T14 and ask for fee waivers from every one. Or, you could listen to someone who knows what they are talking about.

The only serious note I have is that URM cycles are unpredictable which makes any individual's prediction less likely to be valid. Aim higher than reaches. Super-reaches happen in URM cycles. I'd throw an app. at H+S on down. You should be in really good shape at any school with 25th percentile LSAT of 167 or lower.
