What are the lowest GPAs you have seen admitted to HYS with a 173+ LSAT score? Feeling hopeless rn

It entirely depends.

What are your stats, and what are your career goals?

YLS publishes these data, FYI

https://law.yale.edu/admissions/profiles-statistics

Do note that the massive range of the bottom quartile implies that the 3.32 person probably had some amazing things going on in the rest of their app. Like, I don't know, a URM astronaut with a 178 who got Sotomayor to make a phone call.

Generally it's safe to say that YS are very difficult below 3.8 and H is very difficult below 3.6. In other words: 3.6/180 is a presumptive reject at YS and 3.4/180 is a presumptive reject at H. This isn't really a big deal because the former applicant has a good shot for Harvard and both can expect solid scholarships in the T14.
