If you want Stanford I would say retake. If you hit 172+ you should be in for sure, so it may be worthwhile to just retake in June. Then you can just send in everything when apps come out and relax.

Honestly, I think you're a pretty safe bet for Stanford.

If you're applying next year, you might as well retake. With your GPA, aim for a 170 and enjoy Yale.

This sounds pretty accurate to me. Congrats on your awesome numbers and good luck when you end up applying.

Just Apply.

Those are great numbers for an MA-URM

Your GPA is already worthy of them. You would have a minute chance of getting in there with that LSAT though.

If you improve 3-4 points you're pretty much in. Could use the extra year to buff up your app with WE and shit.

I would disagree slightly. I think you are almost guaranteed to be in at H. It seems that schools are much more forgiving of lower LSATs for URMs than for low GPAs and your GPA is truly impressive. Harvard would jump on you if you wanted to go there.

As for Yale, I think that is kind of a crapshoot right now. If you have something amazing that makes you stand out right now (great work experience, or can show amazing leadership through orgs and stuff), you have a chance now. If you don't, then I think 3 or 4 points will give you a much better chance but you are still by no means a shoe in.

I mean probably point wouldn't hurt to apply either way
