This but definitely apply to HYS. Y/S are super unlikely because of the gpa but still you probably have a better chance than many applicants and I'd argue chances are Harvard are reasonable. Lots of people out there will high gpas but very few with an LSAT like that! You are probably one in a small handful of AA females with above a 178 and it'd be crazy to not at least try for HYS.
I second this. Apply everywhere, including HYS
I'd recommend WUSTL for a full scholarship and possible leverage in scholly negotiations. You'll almost certainly get one with your score, even with the GPA.
But some schools (like CCN) only negotiate with their peers, right? So, theoretically/optimistically speaking, if I were to get a full at WUSTL would CN even care if they accepted me at sticker?
I mean of course no one can answer definitively, but still...
CCN might not care, but it could be used to negotiate with schools closer in rank to WUSTL (which could, hypothetically, then be used to negotiate with schools with a slightly higher ranking, etc etc).
