Thanks for the thoughts.  I'm dumb though - what does HRS stand for?

It's an acronym I made up earlier in this thread - highest ranked school (you'll get into)

I'd be thrilled to go to any of those schools.  I thought my 167 might put the kabosh on Chicago and up.  Thanks for your thoughts.

Is "I had my head up my ass for a year and a half, getting kicked out of Top 20 UG in the process" count?

Oh, my degree is in accounting, btw, if you need that info.

Best case is unlikely though. What do you think about worst case?

That reminds me of someone.  :)

Splitters are hard cases. Best case scenario = Georgetown; 'Worst' case, rankings-wise, Fordham. Safe, but higher, Minnesota.

I say GULC, because of the NFP Board thingie. That's a good thing to have.

Berkeley, NYU, Chicago, Michigan. Around there. Crack 171 and HLS may be in play.

Eh, scratch that. I'd say you're okay for HLS at 170.
