In at CCN for sure, probably with some nice $$$. Probably in at B and H, though not a lock. In terms of Y and S it's hard to say without knowing what the "pretty solid softs" you described are. In any case your numbers will not be what killed your app if you get denied from Y or S.

I think you're in at Harvard, Stanford, CCN with $$, and Berkeley.

In everywhere for sure except Y S. Y because they are yale and S because they count softs a lot which you may be lacking in no matter what you think of your softs.

I worked at a top local law firm for six months
I helped start a business think tank
I assisted a professor with a book he's publishing
Service Trip + semi-regular community service (mentoring, fundraisers, etc.)
I'm president of pre-law for my university
I'll graduate with honors, and I'm a member of several honors organizations
I've been to a few leadership camps
Involved in other organizations as well

But I know that for Y especially this is mediocre at best.
What do you guys think? Any word on the optional essays?
Thanks!

I would say average to mediocre softs for YS, but sufficient for rest of T14.

I would still app to Y S with those softs. Softs are relative to other students applying, not an absolute.

Basically the same profile that I applied with last year... and you'll probably be here at H
also this year.

Just send in your apps as soon as you can.
