Maybe UVA ED (I forget the GPA median off the top of my head, but if you're above it, you might have a chance). You'd be a fool not to retake if at all possible, though.

I have your exact numbers, and I'm retaking in December.

No chance of ED anywhere else but UVA?

If I had to apply with these numbers I would throw an app at Cornell. GPA is significantly above their median, so who knows. Very low chances at the rest. Maybe try Berkeley if you have some interesting softs?

Is retaking out of the question?

I will definitely be retaking, but am just not wanting to bank on it considering the short timeline and the uncertainty that I will score higher (even though I was PTing a little higher)

The GPA median at UVA is 3.87. You probably don't really have a chance.

I gotcha. Seems like we are in an identical situation. If I don't score higher on the retake I am going to apply to UColorado and hope for some $. Strong regional school in an area where there isn't much competition. Also, Colorado (the state) is amazing.

I will also be applying to UWashington, although I think $ there is probably out of the question without a higher score.

What are my chances with a Georgetown ED App?

Yea, it's pretty scary. But actually a little better than a lot of schools ranked higher. Hopefully I (we) can score higher in December and not have to worry about going to schools with those kind of employment stats.
