You're a shit poster.

Ah, thanks. And for some reason Noodley, I still have the Nick Nolte avatar in my mind as you (I think that was yours).

rmorris: Thanks for the obvious. Hell, I've said as much myself ITT citing ~10% to get into one combined school in the T6. Penn, Berk & UCLA are going to be tough as hell too (since Cali schools seem to favor the GPA). I realize this. Between ED UVA, Penn, Mich, Duke, NW...I think there's certainly a chance at a T14. I've never given myself much more than a haymaker's chance above UVA. I think all I've said squarely fits with "your gpa is most likely going to prevent you from going to the majority of schools you mentioned."
My career goal would ideally be big(ish) law in the Pacific Northwest.

Yeah, I saw that Columbia and NYU are now 100% with YR plus-up. My decision to ED UVA is based less on money (because there are about 7 other T14 schools that would be free) and more on my GPA. If I try and roll the bones and ED Columbia or NYU, I think my chances with those institutions are <2%. Plus, according to the super spreadsheet and from what I can gather on their website, they preclude me from EDing anywhere else. Even if I could ED to UVA after making a play at one of those, my ED in late December/early January would (in my mind) have less of a shot than my ED on 1 Sep.
So, I think I'd be turning a 30-50% shot at UVA (with extremely early submission) into a 15-25% shot for the 1-2% chance of getting in at Columbia or NYU. Tough tight rope to walk!
