I take you want new york or Chicago?

If so then prehaps of Dozo gave you a free ride it could be an option. And/or try to negotiate with Fordham.

If you don't have geographic preferences, you could apply to Berkeley, Duke, Northwestern (if you have Work Experience).

Maybe UCLA, WUSTL, GW. See where you can get some scholarship $$.

But you need to consider what you want to do and where you want to do it.

Yes, although you are pretty late to get in there with your numbers. Worth a shot, imo.

Send them a LOCI and I'd apply to UConn, W&M, Michigan State

That is if you have no preference of location. But your #'s make you T14 secure so if that's what you really want, sit out the cycle and apply beaucoup early next year.

Yes... go to [url]lawschoolnumbers.com[/url] and look at the graphs for each of those schools.

I have a 164 and a 3.9 and I'm in at Mich, was WL'ed at UVA, got the interview request from GTown (ended up declining because at that point I was already in at Mich and in my book Mich > GTown) and haven't been downright rejected yet by Berkeley or Penn so they're at least thinking about me. Also threw an app at Columbia as a super reach because you just never know and got dinged at Chicago.

You are below both medians, so no but there is probably no harm in switching to ED if it's now your first choice.

Just start using lawschoolnumbers, so you don't need to wait for someone to reply.

Right above 25% for LSAT, at median for GPA. This late, I'd say outlook not so good. Worth a shot, of course.
