CCN on down -- unless you're applying now in which case prepare for WLs.

I'd say 50/50 on Harvard. http://harvard.lawschoolnumbers.com/app ... ,8&type=jd

Applying now or for next cycle? Applying this late is going to hurt your chances. If schools only consider the 172 at the beginning of a cycle (and many say with that much of an increase, they wouldn't care too much about the lower score), you're not shut out of any school. It depends on your softs. You'd probably get Columbia down, having a fighting chance at HYS if you have really good softs.

Probs out at HYS, with a shot at CCN on down. I don't think you're applying too late, but you need to get on it now. And be willing to take a year off if things don't pan out this cycle.

Shoot, I've already taken a year off and don't want to do another.

Yeah, I mean its only January. I think you've still got time. I'm just saying that if you get on the WL train or you get less $ than expected, you should not waste those numbers.

Just apply ASAP and I think you'll be fine.

I wish I could apply now, but I'm still waiting on my stupid transcripts to be processed!
