Two of my recs that I've been waiting on for the past two/three months - finally processed, both in the last four days. Guess that's great news for anyone who is still waiting!!!

Wow, it only took, say, three months for LSAC to finally NOT lose it. Maybe now I'll actually get complete at some more schools.
Would my waitlist at ND change if they get a second LoR? Not becasue I want to go there as much as I don't want to be waitlisted at a school which my numbers SHOULD make be accept-able. Just a pride issue
I know that both schools are mainly regional and do better in the city that they are located - but say I have no real idea where I want to live after law school (short list, though: NYC, Chicago, Boston) -- which school would be better among those three cities?
So I have been putting off sending a check to UChicago & UPenn for my app (I applied on LSACD online and they need the check with the cert. letter, could pay by credit card). In any event, now, post-holiday, I am realizing that I am super-poor and these 150 dollars aren't ones I want to waste. Do I honestly even have a shot at these schools or would I be better off keeping the money? Honest advice would be mucho appreciated. 167/3.5 - personal statement talks about being an immigrant to some extent and communism and blah blah, one rec is fabulous, the other two are currently "lost" by LSAC, figuring out what to do with those; they should be solid, nothing super-spectacular. Same with extra currics - five long-term leadership positions, but haven't saved any lives (yet)
Say I work for a really good law firm as a paralegal for two years. Would that work experience end up helping me out to get a summer associate or actual associate job with that firm once I go to law school? Or is it a waste of time?
