Added my results.

I have very similar numbers. About mid-cycle I realized I didn't wanna live in NY, so I may have been able to get into Columbia with some extra enthusiasm directed towards them, but who knows? I have zero significant softs. Straight outta UG.

You're above the GPA median of every school on your list and just about every LSAT median except for Yale/Harvard/Columbia.
I think your chances of getting in everywhere you apply are good. HYS are, of course, iffy but it's not like you don't stand a chance!
Best of luck!

You have a great shot everywhere. Assemble good LORs, write strong essays (I can't overstate how important this is), and enjoy your senior year :)

Is everyone letting this go? I want an epic flame war, not helpful advice for the totally respectful and seemingly nice OP.

You have a fighting chance at all three of YHS but you are not a total "lock" if you will, for Y and S. Even so, I think you have a decent chance. Especially at H. Make sure the rest of your app comes across very nicely. There's a lot to be said for good PS, resume, and LORs. Too often underestimated.

You have a really good shot at CCN, which leads me to ask... why is NYU not on this list? I see Columbia, so you clearly wouldn't mind living in NYC. Unless totally uninterested for some reason, I would add NYU. Why deprive yourself? Just a safety measure really... you never know how apps are going to go. For that matter, why not throw an app at a few of Penn, Mich, UVA, Duke, and NU just to see how much money any of those schools might give you. Couldn't hurt if you are interested.

You have a good chance, but not a guarantee, of a full-ride at WUSTL. And Cornell and Texas should give you a very good amount of money, but I'm not sure how much.

If any school below YHSCCN wait lists you, they are likely wanting to find out if you'd truly go there. Just a thought.

I see it. I just don't care enough to make a stink one way or another. Traditionally, as in several years back, it probably would have been Columbia>Chicago>NYU... but only in a very subtle way (that's just what I gather... I'm open to other interpretations from people who know).

Even so, I know scores of Midwesterners who would pick Chicago over Columbia and NYU. And I've met New Yorkers who would prefer NYU over Columbia. I guess my point is that they are close enough, to most people, that you should go where you want to be.

If you are one who cares a lot about lay prestige, then I think Columbia is the no-brainer. But attorneys are going to know that they are all solid schools.

It's CCN - Columbia > Chicago > NYU.
