Blanket the t-14. You'll likely see money down through CCN.

Howard should not even be in consideration. Enjoy T-14 with $.

Seriously? Not to criticize my alma mater but, I went to what US News would consider a T-4 school. How heavily does your undergraduate institution weigh when applying to LS?

Take it from a fellow URM - T-14's aren't going to care where you went. Not going to say in everywhere, but it's obvious you need to blanket the T-14. Even if you really want to go to a HBCU, there's no reason to bother applying to Howard.

See you in Cambridge, most likely. Apply early in the cycle to maximize your chances.

Yale might be a no-go with that GPA, but you have a great chance everywhere else.
