PMs sent. Thanks guys.
Hmm...well, it seems like you'd practice on the East coast (given your heavy bias of east coast schools). Texas is the best school, but check out lawschoolnumbers to see if anyone close to you #'s got in. Wustl is probably more of a crap shoot than I am making it out to be, but I'm not sure you'll get an outright acceptance there (maybe WL, then acceptance).
ND would be tough with a 162. Have you considered Tulane for a safety in the South )given that Texas is a reach?).
Your numbers are good...I guess I would say to apply to your safeties and maybe get rid of WUSTL (as you say you want to get out of the Midwest and stand a better chance at Ill/Minn). Have you thought about retaing the LSAT? Two...vene three points would change you from 50/50 to a lock at your reaches and a 165 would be about 50/50 for Texas, Vandy, etc. I know that's bad advice...but it really does make a world of difference (why? I dont know...its only like 3-4 questions more right).
Where do you want to practice? Your schools are quite varied and that could certainly make an impact. Probably the best school you could get into from that list is BC or UNC. But, that;s assuming you want to practice on the East Coast. If Midwest, I'd aim for Minn or Ill.
Why not apply to Notre Dame? Who knows what could happen, given your quite high GPA.
What other board? I'm confused--earlier this morning everyone was saying that we won't be getting the scores until Monday because of the Iowa situation, and now all of a sudden people are hearing we could be getting them within a few hours??
