Your numbers make you a great candidate for early decision! Ordinarily early decision can't be relied on to overcome a significant application deficiency. But the good news is you don't seem to have one. The 4.0 GPA will make you a very attractive candidate, since that will help with Georgetown's 75th percentile GPA. And while the 167 is a point below Georgetown's current LSAT median (found here: http://www.abarequireddisclosures.org/D ... re509.aspx
), it is well above the school's current LSAT 25th percentile of 164. Will those numbers increase slightly because of this competitive application cycle? Probably. Will Georgetown be able to hold them during next year's cycle? Possibly. Even still, the 167 is ideal territory for an early decision application, assuming (as you've mentioned) that you're okay with the prospect of paying full tuition.
Make sure you spend a significant amount of time crafting a persuasive personal statement, and be sure to select recommenders who say glowing things about you. Check out our free resources on those issues here: https://www.powerscore.com/lsat/law-sch ... ions/help/

I hope this helps!
