I'm in same boat, or actually worse boat, as Wert and OP as I have a 171 and a 4.

my dream is H though, with no real desire to move to california for S and lack of brilliance for Y.

I decided to apply this cycle because I think I have about a 50% chance at H as it is. If i get in, I go. If I don't I wait a cycle, retake in June or October and reapply hopefully with 173 and 4 and get in. At least that was the plan before i got this uva full ride...

Any advice on whether this is the right away to approach it? Should i even be applying this cycle? Should i just run with uva?

Relax and wait for other schools to chime in. H or CCN with a smaller scholly could be a justifiably better choice for you over UVA with a full ride depending on your career goals. Either way you're going to have great options

Is there a significant difference between the strength of a 4.0 and a 4.13? I know that most people cannot earn above 4.0 due to the grading system of their school, and I thought that would be considered in the admissions process.

Also, when I put my exact numbers into mylsn and exclude URMs, it states that over the last 6 cycles 67 were accepted to H with numbers worse than mine, while 2 were rejected with better. Do those statistics have much significance as far as my current chances are concerned?
