I wouldn't worry about it, if I were you.

right?? like sub 3.7 makes it impossible without URM right? I ask because right now I have a 3.5/175. Considering a retake only if a 180 could get me HYS... well really just H cus I figure Y/S would still be auto-dings.

I think the 180 might make a difference with Columbia. Probably not anywhere else. I don't remember admissions all that well, though.

FWIW, there was a kid this year with a 3.46 180 that got rejected. If you are able, it may not be a bad idea to retake if you are confident you can improve since it may get you big scholly money at a MVP and some at CCN, otherwise feel free to apply away.

You aren't getting HYS, and you've got a good chance at CCN. Unless you were PTing around 180 and something outrageous happened during your LSAT, I'd just hold steady.

+1, you would need at least a 3.65 gpa for harvard to become a realistic reach.
