Jontor honestly,

Your situation takes the cake--I think you were screwed!  Some preliminary stats from LSN (I am not saying this a definitive source on anything but its useful when used appropriately):

Check these folks out:

This guy even overcame a 147 to be accepted to BC

Just some food for thought.

Bravegrl....dont let lsd or lsn determine where you should apply (Cpoied from King Shark's book). Apply anywhere you want to go, work hard on your ps, and get some good lors and then sit and wait.  Goodluck

Arizona, Cal-Davis, Cal-Hastings, UConn, DePaul, Florida and Florida State, George Mason, GW, Illinois, Miami, UMD, Seton Hall, St. Johns, San Diego, Villanova, just to start. These are mainly targets. I would probably go ahead and apply to a few Top 14 schools just to see what might happen.
