Possible but unless gulc's median falls to 168, unlikely.

You are below both medians at all the schools you listed which makes admission unlikely. If you do get in, it will be at sticker.

Retake in October to hit medians.

As Nova said, possible but unlikely at GULC, decent shot at Cornell (although you didn't mention it), not so good at Northwestern, very weak odds at NYU and Columbia.

Cornell is your best shot. The schools you listed are probably out. I'd retake for 170+.

Don't these sample sizes seem rather small?

Decent softs, but nothing that's going to change your cycle much. Everyone writes a strong personal statement, you can't count on that setting you apart. You really need to retake to have a confident shot

Yes. I usually restrict my searches to the last 3 or 4 cycles because I feel older ones aren't as representative now that applications have dropped. However, I suppose I can broaden the LSAT range to 167-169 for you:

So now Michigan looks better, but keep in mind that's because Michigan's LSAT median is 169. Only 3 of the admits got in with less than 169.

Duke goes from 0% to 20%, but it looks like Duke's median dropped to 169 this cycle too. And all of those accepted had a 169. Not much else changes.



Or I can broaden the GPA range and throw in another cycle, but the results with this increased sample size look the same.

Just so you (and other applicants) know, your softs are fine, but they won't move the admissions needle.

"Very strong" softs -- ones that will actually boost your chances -- are things like: Rhodes/Marshall, PhD with influential publications, renowned author or musician, Olympic gold medalist, MacArthur Fellowship ("Genius Grant") recipient, and so forth.
