Apply to the T14 (any of the T14) at your discretion. Good luck.

I have a similar GPA and went through the scenario of hitting 175 many times. YS sounds unlikely from your description of your application, as others have mentioned. If you look at LSN, 175 is where you start to have a decent shot at Harvard. That said, you are still a coin flip at best, and it is going to depend on the strength of the rest of your application (in part because Harvard has started moving away from direct from undergrad applicants, and has been slowly raising its GPA requirements). Things like strength of major, strength of work or extracurricular experience, and strength of school--Berkeley v. 4th tier public will matter some--will come into play because you are on the cusp.

CCN and the rest should all work out, and you have a good shot at getting decent scholarships.

Good luck!
