4.0/167/170 + weak (ish) softs- worth it to apply at YH?

Postby jcd178 » Mon May 10, 2010 1:17 pm

Yes, yes, I know that LSP says that I'm a consider at Yale and Harvard with the 4.0 and the 170. But LSP doesn't take into account that my 170 is a retake from a 167, which seems to matter at these two schools. Plus, my softs are okay but nothing too special, and my UG is a pretty unprestigious state school. Anyone have any advice on whether it's actually worth it to apply or not?

If you want an acceptance there, its worth it. However, acceptance to either school is unlikely.

Sure, it's worth it. What's the worst that could happen? You lose $50?

As a wise man once said, “Shoot for HYP. Even if you miss, you'll land amongst the Cornells.”
