At Columbia, the median LSAT is 172 and yet that means that 50% of people have that or below, with 25% at 170 or below. And I just don't see enough green dots to think that we're getting the whole story. People who have excellent softs, etc. don't seem to post on there.
With the TFA experience, a solid GPA (ideally from a reputable univ.), and a 172, I would say that you're definitely under consideration at Harvard.
You're my new favorite TLSer
(I was "held" at Harvard though.. just happy to not be a ding *yet* lol)
Give it a few more weeks, see where the chips fall, and if you're not satisfied with what you've got, send in a LOCI and maybe another recommendation to Harvard. TFA has helped place a number of my friends with worse LSATs (but slightly higher GPAs) from Berkeley into that school.
