Congrats on your killer lsat score. As far as law school admissions is concerned, it's primarily just a numbers game. It is my understanding that admissions committees take your GPA at face value, meaning although you went to Princeton (which is notorious for grade deflation), it won't afford you any discernable advantage. I'm assuming you're not a URM, so I'd venture to say that of the schools you've applied to, you have a decent chance of gaining admission to NYU, Penn and Michigan, can't say your chances at HYSCC or Berkley are that great if I'm being honest, but who knows, you may outperform your numbers, anyways, good luck!

i just submitted my applications yesterday (exciting!). now that i have all this free time on my hands, i'm spending it wondering what my chances are at top 10 schools. took the lsat once and got 170. only have a 3.6 gpa, but it's from princeton (does that weigh it as if it were a higher gpa?). i'm worried that even though i have strong recs, ps, and addendum (i dedicated 60 hrs/week to one extra curricular in college, so i explained that in my apps), my average gpa will keep me out of those schools. thoughts?
applied to: harvard, stanford, columbia, nyu, penn, michigan, berkeley
You will definitely get into Michigan, and you might get into one or two of NYU, penn and berkeley. I would be truly shocked if you got into H/S or even Columbia. You should definitely also apply to UVA and Chicago. As an aside, if you really want T6 admission, you could probably get into UChicago ed. However, you would be paying sticker and only have like a week to apply. Also consider retaking. You could into H if you got 173+ even with a 3.6. None of these schools will care about your addendum and while a Pton degree is very nice, it's not something law schools can report to U.S. News. Best of luck.
