I didn't even apply to my state school OSU with a 3.54/160. These are pretty shitty numbers relatively speaking and being a rather unremarkable white male does not bode well for me. But I tend to be extremely pessimistic.

Thats not a hail mary. Thats an acceptance (if you applied ED)

Not necessarily true. It's below both medians and the GPA is below the 25th.

True. But its not a stretch by any means. Those are "competitive" ED numbers

I did RD (I'm going to Lewis & Clark or nowhere, so my other apps are for entertainment purposes only--or maybe $$ leverage), and LSP said 'weak consider'. I figure that qualifies as a hail mary. :)

Sure, I threw a pass to Harvard. If I'm lucky it'll get intercepted by Penn.
