Softs:
CPA,CFA, 3 years experience at slightly prestigious professional services firm

Competitive bodybuilder (LOL, wasn't sure if this should be relative at all... maybe hard work/dedication)
White male

You should get into most of them, and with good money from some lower T14 schools.

Columbia is doable.

Thanks for all the replies guys. Do you think I have any shot at HYS? I realize the LSAT is a bit low for them, but I feel like my experiences are pretty unique. I'm assuming no shot, unless an LSAT retake.

Pretty sure you're below both medians at all three. That + white male = retake for hys

The published author/bodybuilder combo does sound like it could make for an interesting application, so it isn't impossible, but honestly being below median for both LSAT and GPA is a lot to come back from. If you want a realistic shot at YHS you have to retake.

Y is a pipe dream for most people so I wouldn't count on it.

H is more likely than S

Why Columbia? What do you want to do after law school?

I would apply everywhere. IIRC Y took something like a 152 a couple years ago and what I heard was their only great soft was being a published author. There may have been something else, but I think it's a unique enough soft where it's worth the app fee with your numbers.

If you really want HYS and you strike out you can always retake.
