A 176 does not make you a reach ANYWHERE, regardless of what LSP says. You will probably get in everywhere you apply, with a random result from among HYS depending on your softs. UGH!
this is wrong. HYS like GPAs too and they will not stoop too low to get a 176+ scorer. LSN has evidence of this. H is the most LSAT friendly of the three and even they have a GPA floor of 3.65 or so.
i would call a reach anything that you have a 20-50% acceptance chance, anything less than that is a hail mary.
50% is a target. Under 20% is a reach.
How about you let us all know which school among HYS you were granted admission to at the end of the cycle so you can prove once again how schools are willing to overlook mediocre performance in UG in light of a test taken on a single Saturday morning. I'd probably put $$ on you getting a free ride to a top 10 law school with a 176.
