Why does your LSAT keep changing from (164, 160, 163, 157)? Did you really learn 2 new languages from 6 months ago when you said you only knew English? Not to be mean, but your post history reads like somebody with multiple personalities.

With your stats I'd say you have a pretty decent shot at Duke ED. Normally those numbers are pretty much auto waitlist for a URM, but it seems like the few with decent softs actually manage to get in. I'd say that your softs with ED would put you over the top and probably land you Duke.

This. You won't get into Duke with those numbers, it's possible, but a longshot. However, knock that up another 5 points. You can get $$$ from a number of T-14's. Good luck.
