i hate to burst your bubble, but my experience might be relevant.  i graduated from a top school with a 3.74.  when i applied to law school, my lsdas gpa was a 3.78.  however, because of my lsat score--161--i was waitlisted almost everywhere i applied.  grades, while important, are, as i have learned, not nearly as important as the test.  i wanted very much to stay at georgetown, and, while i was denied admission, many of my friends with lower--and in some cases much lower--gpa's are attending there next year. 

don't mean to be discouraging.  you sound like a very intelligent person, and i am sure that you will be fine in the admissions process.  sounds like your gpa is something you don't need to worry about--maybe you should start worrying about--or studying for--the lsat.

i had a 160 on my first practice (first day of the princeton review) and a 160 and my second practice test (last day of pr).  i got a 161 on the test.  needless to say, i am not a huge fan of the pr.  should have gone on a thousand dollar shopping spree or gone abroad.

tested 160 through the princeton review and then improved a whopping 1 pt to score a 161 on the actual test.  best 1000 dollars i ever spent...oh wait...


i am on the waitlist at gw, and i have a 3.78 from georgetown and a 161.  good luck.  also, are you from tx?  i grew up in houston.

there was really no mention of picking a school based on someone's immature postings on this site.  and if you don't care, then why respond?

you seem to me to be a prime example of why one should choose to live in texas over nyc:  the people in the south are actually friendly.  this i know, having lived in both places.  you are not doing your region a favor by acting so pompous.

my stats are 3.8 from georgetown and 161.

how about the decision between the very cold and far away #19 university of minnesota and the close to home and comfortable #56 american?  am agonizing over this.
