Uhhhh....no.

Have you graduated yet? If not, work on getting straight A's this semester. That's the most important thing.

If yes, no you're not straight-up auto-reject, but a 3.64 is close. (The lowest Yale accepted last year was I think 3.63.)

I'm on top of things this semester and definitely think I can get my LSDAS back up to a 3.7.
Assuming my LSDAS stays in the 3.6 range, would a 175 get me in everywhere?

Depends on the PR URM bump, which I really can't speak to. Maybe ask in the URM forum. If you were white, you'd probably be out at HYS and Chicago, with a 3.6/175.

You've got a good shot at Harvard and Stanford with a 3.7, 170+ since you're a URM , but Yale does whatever the hell it wants.

I don't know, I may be overreacting to how ridiculous UChi was with waitlists this year, but they've gotten very picky about GPA.

Well using the LSDAS calculator on lawschoolpredictor it looks like even with a 4.0 semester I'll be at a 3.69. My school does administer A+'s though so that's a good thing, but I'm guessing there's a good chance I'll be in the 3.6 range by the time I apply in September.

I'm just going to study my ass off for the LSAT and go in there trying for perfection.

Probably. You screwed yourself this semester.

Yeah this. If you get your GPA back up a bit and destroy the LSAT, you might still have a shot at the T6.

Focus really hard on your grades this semester. Get that 4.0. Better yet, get some A+s too. "Crushing the LSAT" is easier said than done. Some people have no choice but to put all their hopes on the LSAT. You can actually do something about your grades right now, so work it. Obviously you will still need a good LSAT. Your grades will dictate whether you need a 170+ or a 175+.
