I would guess, and mind you I am not as knowledeable as others, that with that LSAT Harvard is pretty viable. Stanford and Yale are more sticklers with GPA's, esp. Yale. So I would say a good chance at H, decent chance at S, and a far reach for Yale simply because they have a pretty hard GPA floor that happens to be much higher than 3.4.

If you're more interested in money definitely don't leave CCN out of the equation.

I agree with this. Y is probably out. Your odds at H are good. S is iffier because they love GPAs and care less about the LSAT. Apply early. I'm sure you'll do very well. Congrats!
