If you are set in going to the South ( atlanta, jacksonville) I would go to Wake b/c they have a solid rep in the south

you and i actually have very similar situations.  i am waitlisted at almost all of those schools as well and also got into the university of minnesota.  i went to minnesota's accepted students weekend and was impressed;  however, in the end, i just couldn't move from dc to minneapolis.  i am from houston originally and can't do the midwest winters.  also, my friends are in dc.  were those good enough reasons to turn down a top twenty school?  i don't know.  time will tell, i guess.  i know, though, that i will be much happier at the school i chose--american.  rankings are imporant, but they are not everything.  those are all good schools, and, if you do well, you shoudln't have a problem finding a decent job when you get out.  go where you will be happiest and/or where you want to practice law when you finish. 

good luck!

Thanks Caroline! Its nice to hear from someone who is in the same situation. I think I ruled out Minnesota also. (No 20 below zero winters for me).  ;)

Shcwing as for your question, I am 22 LSAT 162, GPA 3.67 from Franklin & marshall. I was told that my GPA held more weight at some of the schools that knew about the rigorous standards of F&M.
