My december LSAT score still sucks, my gpa is okay (3.45).
4 years work experience in the field I want to get into.
Still haven't submitted my applications. I'm waiting for a few people to get back to me on revisions.

I feel so defeated by this process and I don't think i'm going to get in anywhere. I thought I would feel excited but I feel dread.

I believe in you! I’m also going to be a late starter. Just trust in the strength of the rest of your application :)

Being brutally honest, what do you guys think the chances are for an AA male with a 3.5 and 174 LSAT to go HYS?

Reach out to NYU's BALSA for sure. You definitely have a chance there. I talked to a lot of BALSA students there who had your LSAT score and similar other qualities. You should be fine.
