i think if lsp says you are a consider you have about a 50/50 shot. so you shouldn't be surprised if you don't get into all of them, but i think you will probably get into at least 1

I got similar numbers (153/3.7) and I applied in late December to Wayne and Toledo for their part time programs. I am in at Wayne and have not heard from Toledo.

if you are 50/50 at all the schools, your chance of getting into at least one is:

1-( 1/2)^6 = around 99% chance.

of course the problem is that admissions decisions are not independent. i suspect that if you are WL at one comparable school, the chance of a WL/reject is much higher at the other schools. this is because the same reasons one adcomm says "eh" will probably translate to other adcomms.
