Retook Sep LSAT in Dec, and accepted at Berekely and NYU with 1 LOR, for anyone who questions whether schools really mean it when they say 0-1 LOR required (which I did, but my second writer didn't get hers in until Feb SECOND)
congrats on the great cycle. i don't think your getting accepted into these schools proves or even indicates anything about how schools look at LORs. i think you -- as a URM, 171, 3.7 from Harvard -- can afford to send just 1 LOR. i would argue that it certainly helps the vast majority of applicants to send 2-3 LORs.
