My story is i am an AA male, I've done 5yrs active military before undergrad and 3 years reserve during undergrad. I come from a very disadvantage background which i illustrated in the PS, and 1st generation college grad. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this question. I've recently applied to school law schools and im a bit anxious, so could anybody tell my chances at the following school.

Harvard
Stanford
Columbia
NYU
Chicago
Berkeley
Duke
Northwestern
Cornell

What was your undergrad major? How good of a UG university did you attend? I think both will matter to have a chance at the higher reaches...

Looks like people are confident in the Harvard admit... glanced at LSN, and it does look somewhat promising, but that GPA is still a bit low. Good luck!

He's an AA URM, will make up for the UGPA.

BTW, has it ever been determined what Obama got on his LSAT? Curious.

You're an AA male. Don't do anything stupid between now and your applications, write a competent PS and other essays, and you can reasonably expected to get into most--if not all--of those schools. Good luck!
