Bilingual (Russian)
Senator and Judicial Committee Chairman at university (blah blah blah)
Intern at United States Southern Command HQ

As a UF student, don't bother applying here.

The last two AA applicants with 164-166 and 3.5-3.7 got Harvard and Chicago. There is not much data and URM cycles are very unpredictable so don't rely too heavily on that. I would wager you'll get at least one of HYSCCN.

You should still blanket the T14. Even if you aren't planning on attending some of the schools, you can use offers to get more money at schools you would rather attend. You'll probably get a fee waiver at everywhere in the T14 you would like one anyway. Plus, with the limited data on URM admissions, you would be doing a great service to future AA/URM applicants by sharing your entire T14 cycle.

Good luck!

Retake for just a few more points to guarantee HYS.

Yeah OP if you haven't taken the LSAT three times you should consider a retake. You've already got at least a few T14 acceptances locked up so you have nothing to lose and a ton to gain by trying for a few more points.

Any reason you're not applying to Stanford? At any rate, you'll probably get at least one of HYS (most likely H or S) with your current numbers, so retaking isn't absolutely necessary for you. If you're interested in Yale or even more money at the other schools on your list, however, you may want to think about retaking.

Either way, you'll have a great cycle.

Yeah, as far as Stanford is concerned...I'm not a huge fan of California. I'll probably apply but it'd take a lot for me to actually consider it. For the most part I've heard that you should go where you want to practice and I wouldn't mind living in any of the other states I'm applying to...I can't really see myself in CA....not to say a huge paycheck wouldn't influence me. I also know that HYS can get you anywhere, but I'd rather not take the chance and end up somewhere that isn't for me.

This is advice for schools that are not HYS. You can practice nationwide from any of these schools. Some of the other T14 are more regional.

+1. You should absolutely apply to Stanford, if not just to increase your chances at getting into at least one of HYS. An HYS law degree is very portable.
