Even accepting the numbers here, which are far too small a sample size from which to arrive at any firm conclusion, it's notable that almost no one was "rejected with worse" and many were "accepted with worse." His numbers are up to par -- it's a matter of softs at this point for those two, not numbers. Insofar as numbers are concerned, I stand by my "you're in everywhere."

But yeah, it's basically always a good call to whip out myLSN for sure. Thanks for the link.


Are 'softs' activities or accomplishments independent of one's GPA and LSAT score? If so, my softs comprise the work experience listed in my initial post; many rewarding but commonly undertaken volunteer activities (e.g. reading to disadvantaged children); and several accomplishments as a provincial-level rower.

Thanks for the advice; I plan on applying to most t14s so I have options if I don't get into my target schools.

Did you apply to Harvard and were you accepted?
