One thing I learned from this cycle is that if you can afford it, blanket all the schools you are even remotely willing to go to even if they are a super reach. You never know who will bite. It may piss some people off because some think it is a waste of money, but it is SO much easier to get into a top school now rather than fighting off others to get into it later. Your LSAT (as unfair as it seems) is your advantage over others so use it for all its worth because it won't count very much later on.
You know what's crazy is that I was shooting for T50 schools. Northwestern wasn't even a consideration! I agree with tacojohn, I can't believe anyone would give you grief just for applying for as many schools as you can. Better to waste some cash now than possibly wait another year to get into a school you want.Hey Starresky, thanks for the input. I also notice you did alot of addendums and letters of continued interest. I bet your tenacity probably helped too. Did you follow a certain format for them?
