(1) Yes, your GPA would go up for LSAC purposes because they DO count A+s as 4.3. So you'd probably do pretty well.
Thanks so much for the information. I'm actually doing an MA in New York so I've become a veteran of dealing with Homeland Security's many requirements.

I found that having studied philosophy and political theory helped a ton both with arguments and RC. Those args questions resembled *&^% we did in first year. Also any social science/humanities student can attest to how much quicker they read and retain information as a result of their studies.
You may be talking about a different Sunstein, but Cass Sunstein is at Chicago. Also, is your interest a particular legal theory or a strong theoretical faculty in general?
strong theoretical foundation in general. I studied political theory for both my BA and MA so I have an appreciation for that type of approach. Even though I now want to study something more practical I'd like to be somewhere where I can still take courses relating to my personal interests and get into a little Kelsen vs. Schmitt talk (I'm such a f-ing nerd).
Does anyone know which schools are strongest in theory? I know that NYU has Dworkin, Sunstein, and Nagel; and that Nussbaum is cross-appointed at Chicago. Are there any other schools people would suggest for someone interested in studying law from both atheoretical and practical perspective?
