3.52 GPA / 165 LSAT / Black PR Female

Applied super late last cycle; got into USC off the waitlist (couldn't go for financial reasons); waitlisted at Stanford, Columbia, NYU, Michigan, Duke, Cornell, Georgetown.

Just finished sending out all my apps -- chances this year at the following:

Stanford
Columbia
NYU
Berkeley
Duke
UCLA
Georgetown

Is that your UG GPA or your LSDAS GPA?

I'd throw apps to the rest of the T6 as well.

Hmm even HY? I thought Stanford was enough of a reach, but Yale just sent an email inviting me to an on campus visit/event at my UG (an Ivy) -- said they got my info from CRS (...which I'm assuming would include my LSAT?). Do you think this is a blanket thing or should I take this as an exceedingly hopeful indication that Yale is actually interested in me and I should consider shelling out the $$ for an app?

If I'm being delusional, please smack some sense into me.

Yale does not have to blanket. They are interested.

Yes all of HYS is worth it. It's not a lock or even a good shot but it is definitely worth it considering you have a shot.
