Thanks for the reply guest.. very encouraging.  The only reason I was considering locals was for part-time options.  However, the more I think about it, the more I think full time would be worth it.  I'm not the kinda person who would be cool with working all day/night and on weekends.  So I agree... a nationwide search would be called for.  I just moved from Wisconsin, so I'm pretty mobile.
 
I've got two years (or three years, whenever I decide to apply) to get the LSAT score I want.  Hearing that the LSAC has changed policy and caused most schools to take the *highest* LSAT is very encouraging to me.  Mostly because it will relieve TONS of pressure that first time.  I'll be able to take it relaxed (or more so).

Dude! If you just moved to Wisconsin, first get residency then to go the university of wisconsin - madison for law school:
 
1.  In state tuition is 12k a year for residents, which is a steal for a great T1 law school
 
2.  As a Madison law grad, you automatically get a law license to practice in wisconsin, no need to pass the wisconsin bar
 
 
GO TO MADISON!!!

I see.  So you moved to VA for USPTO?  I guess it would be premature to quit before gaining valuable experience, and it will be good to have that much time for studying.  Study for the LSAT as much as you can, within reason.  
 
I am a splitter (sub 3.0) and have had a few T20/T25 options to choose from with scholarships.  Acceptances such as this are possible and quite likely given the score range you listed.  Just be prepared for some initial waitlisting/deferring.
 
Also, if you do still happen to be interested in GW part-time, you could always take the LSAT sooner.  As with GULC PT, GW PT scores are not reported and do not affect school rankings.
 
As for the other schools you listed (GMU, W&M, W&L), these are great schools, particularly the latter two, and your chances are fair at them.
