Just getting ready to send in my Yale app, but I'm curious whether my LSAT score really hurts me with them or if the GPA helps balance it out. I checked LSN and it doesn't look great, but I figured I'd get another opinion. I'm also waiting on Stanford, curious about them as well (since I am above both 75th %s). Here's the rest of the info:
4.14 LSDAS GPA
3 strong LORs - all from undergrad professors I worked closely with for at least 3 semesters apiece.
Decent softs - primarily academic but nothing really extraordinary
Not sure where your numbers will get you? Dying to know where you stand? Come have your palms read by your fellow posters!

Looks just fine to me. I think you're forgetting that Yale doesn't go green for anyone, because the folks at Yale are not afraid to reject applicants with near perfect numbers. (Except maybe 180/4.33. I don't think there are any known rejects for those numbers.)
Stanford is even harder to predict because they emphasize LSAT less than Yale and have a smaller class size. Should be in at Harvard on down though.
