So you're LSAC GPA is 3.7, correct?

Currently...I have a 3.68 cumulative gpa. Hopefully I can bump it up to 3.7 by graduation.

I think your odds are good if you apply early. Unfortunately I applied in early January with a 168 3.7 and got WL'd. I still believe if I had applied earlier I would've been in, and I think you have a great chance! Best of luck :D

Edit: I thought your score was 165. I think with a 165+ you'll be in, but I think if you're below that, you're in risky territory. And obviously aim to do as well as you can, since the test-day jitters can definitely impact your scope.

The JUCO transcript only plays the role of bringing down your LSAC GPA. But a 3.7 is nothing to be ashamed of anyway.

Dude, Dragon BallZ is the shit. I loved that show when I was in middle school/high school and I'm not a nerd at all, its just awesome.

I didn't apply to Stanford or Harvard, but I had similar numbers to you, am an african american male and likely have a far less compelling story than you.

I got into NYU and Columbia with a scholarship. So I think you stand a good chance at Stanford. However, I will note that I did not get into Berkeley.
