I'd say strong consider to tentative admit if you do in fact deliver an LSAT in that range

You are still a sophomore right? If so, bump up that GPA over the next year and a half to about a 3.7, get the LSAT in the 165 range and you are probably in at Duke. With all this time to practice the LSAT, get yourself into the 170s.

A 3.7/170 black male who taught English in Peru will have a better than 50/50 chance at Yale.

Assuming you apply ED, which it seems like you should if you have such focused interest, I'd say you were in with a 165, 3.6. But seriously, you have three years. Get both those numbers up as high as you can and then either apply to HYS or go to Duke for free.

Why Duke? Bump it up .08 points to a 3.7 and score a 165 and you're looking at columbia, possibly harvard.
