I have similar stats and the conclusions I've come to, from this board and LSN are:

NYU? Slim, especially without ED
Penn? A little less than 50/50, better with ED.
GULC? Good
GW? Good, not sure about $$. My understanding is they give most of their $$ to ED candidates
BU? Very good, again, not sure about $$. They seem to love high GPAs
Fordham? Very good, chance at some money.

If you really want UPenn or NYU (or Michigan or UVA or anything better than Georgetown) your best shot is to ED.

thank you for that reply. I'm also wondering how low I would have to go in the rankings to get significant $$$ (half tuition or more)?

You should get at least half tuition at WUSTL (18th) with that LSAT. Not sure of schools above that just because of the GPA.

If you're looking for serious $$$, you should definitely apply to WUSTL and some of the other Midwestern splitter friendly schools. (I know less about this because I'm pretty much only looking at the east coast schools). You'll probably have to leverage some of the schools offers against each other.

From what I've seen here and on LSN, money seems less predictable than acceptance. I'd cast a wide net to increase your chances.

I can't say I agree with this. I don't understand why ppl assume that ED is this big boost over RD for splitters. LSN provides unconvincing data as to whether ED actually HELPS at any of these schools. Just because some may have been admitted on LSN thru ED does not mean the same person could not have been admitted at another school. ED is only there so schools can primarily pick candidates that are already at or above both medians. One can make the case that splitters would have probably gotten in thru RD regardless.
