Even if he is speaking from experience, the odds of an acceptance with money there are small. Your number combo is a wall of yellow on LSN. Duke was my only reject, and I had a 168/3.76. I would have expected at least a WL, especially since the rest of my app was solid.
Sorry, I thought OP was a URM.
Yea you may have a shot at Duke. I was a 169 and 3.8, so I was in thier range. I know someone (URM) who got in with a 167 and 3.46 with some scholarship.
LOL a 3.8x is near their 75th percentile, while OP's 3.42 is well below the 25th percentile. Huge huge difference there. OP is a long shot to get in at sticker, let alone with money.
