I could see BU and GWU happening with a strong app despite the GPA.
In at BC, Irvine, and Davis with money. Hastings with full ride/$$$$.
Out at T20.

Do you think applying early to UCLA or Georgetown will help? Or even USC?

It can't hurt. Not sure it will help in a meaningful way, but the earlier the better is generally the rule.

And I just looked at USC medians. I forgot their median was 165, so I was probably too pessimistic before on them. The GPA will hold you back, but you're not an autoding at USC, GWU, and BU.

If you were me, which school would you pick to use your early decision to?

None, because I wouldn't attend any of them at sticker.

Okay, what if I am willing to pay sticker (sorry I dont mean to come off as pretentious, just very fortunate that money is not an issue)

What do you think is the best school I could get into ?

I know nothing about your goals or preferences so I don't feel comfortable answering that, especially since your most reasonable shots are regional schools which would limit you in terms of the likelihood of certain career outcomes and geography.

The answer as still the same as when you made that other thread: stop being stubborn, and just retake. Your impatience and frustration with a four-hour test is a bad reason to throw away $100,000+, even if it is money your parents are happy to provide.
