Little to no chance at T14. PC is a nice soft but doubtful its going to overcome a sub-160 score. Shoot for 170 in June. Good luck!

Not happening with your current stats.

Good luck on the retake.

Shoot for 170 or above.

170 should do it at Gtown. I would say 173 or above with your GPA at NYU. If you can write a phenomenal PS and really sell your background/experiences, maybe less at each.

I think some schools have Peace Corps vet specific scholarships. Don't apply without looking into that.
