I think you have just about equal chance at Harvard and Stanford with that GPA. You'll get a boost on the LSAT score because you're an MA male. Again, enjoy HYS. :)

Anything below UVA is solidly safety school zone. Enjoy.

Can you explain your vote? I'm particularly interested in the people who voted CCN

CCN voter.

169 is low for HYS and MA is one of the smaller boosts (3-5+ to LSAT at most).

You've got a chance at H, probably not Y or S unless you have a helluva story.

But you're in at CCN on down, probably with money.

You are on your way to Harvard, Stanford or Yale. I have a friend that had a 3.8ish GPA and probably a lower LSAT. He went to Harvard. I hope to join you at YHS. I need a similar LSAT as you though.

Was your friend an AA URM or MA?

I will probably take it in February and apply late. It seems like most elite law schools hold off on making decisions on URM's until all the applications are in anyways. I will not sit for the LSAT unless I feel 100% prepared though. So, I might have to wait until June and apply next cycle. I really do not want to sit for a morning administration of the test. I think better in the middle of the day. I am not sure what I am going to do just yet. I will make a decision in January depending on my PT scores.

In my personal experience, morning works better. I was so anxious/stressed the entire morning for the June exam, waiting for the test. In October, I basically woke up, ate, warmed up, and went to work. I liked that better, but that was also my better test score so maybe I'm biased ha. Are you close to scoring your goal?? I'm curious because I honestly thought I'd never break 165.. I scored a 160 in June (PTing avg around 162-163).. I was fortunate enough to get a 169 in October tho! It CAN be done. ha

I am in the low 160's. My goal is 170+ like most people. My sleep schedule is all messed up right now though. I have a couple of ladies in my life that just do not understand I cannot be partying every Friday and Saturday until 4 in the morning. The other day on Saturday, I got home at 6 in the morning. They are a stubborn bunch. They think if I am not with them a certain Friday or Saturday night of every week I am with another girl (which is true). :).

As far as YHS is concerned, you are about as close as it gets to being auto admit for a URM. I am surprised one of them hasn't admitted you yet. YHS are acting like a girl on a first date: They are initially acting like they "don't want it", but they really do at the end of the night.
