Good shot at Cornell and GW, probably looking at waitlist at most of the others. Probably will slide into a 7-12 late in the cycle at sticker price would be my guess - obviously re-take is your best option but if your not interested in that Cornell will probably be your destination.

What is T7 btw? Other than HYSCCN (assuming you think NYU is top 6 by convention), what is the final school that you feel is clearly superior to the rest of the T14? Also, the Hispanic urm boost is the by far the smallest (I think in general it adds about 0.1 for GPA and 2-3 points for LSAT depending on the school), if you were AA with those numbers, you will get into CCN and probably one of HYS, if you were NA, then you are probably the top performer in this cycle for your ethnic group and HYS will rush to offer acceptance.

1. What is the T7?
2. Retake for a 170.
3. You have a good shot at Cornell, maybe GULC or Berkeley (since they tend to seek interesting softs).

OP is not even a urm hispanic. They arent ME or PR, evidently. They will not receive any true quantifiable "boost", but a strong diversity statement + fulbright and masters together serve as good softs that will be an asset.

By T7, Im assuming OP includes Penn and UVA. Penn and NYU will have comparable ranking in 2014 anyway.

Weird idea of prestige (T7? Global top 5 university?)

Also, retake

We have a phrase we use to describe people like you. We call them "retakers".

Also, why are you going to law school with a masters and phd?
