Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you'd get URM status.

Out at Yale, small shot at Chicago

I currently have too much time on my hands (s/o bronchitis thanks for the cute cough) so like what better to do than hyperventilate about law schools!

My numbers are 3.67 and 170, I'm a semi-URM (???? Half Paraguayan? Help? Dad?), my softs are 1) current Fulbright English Teaching Assistant, 2) I wrote a senior thesis and also got a different piece published, 3) I regularly held 3-4 jobs at any given time during undergrad (one of which was a managerial position), and 4) I did some volunteering stuff WOO #community. My ~dream schools~ would be Yale and UChicago. I've gotten into Georgetown, Duke, and Michigan so far. I think that's p much the most relevant info? If anyone wants to help me speculate wildly I'll name my firstborn child after you.

Peace and love,

Yeah out at Yale and Stanford, probably 5% chance at Harvard, 10% at Chicago and 20% at Columbia. As far as I understand, a Fulbright English teaching is not the same was Fulbright Scholar, so that wont be a very useful soft. Everyone in law school has a thesis and a lot have stuff published. So your softs are a wash. Also, I don't think you are a URM that will get a bump, but that is something I am not 100% sure of. So, given your numbers, you like likely be deciding between UVA/Duke/Michigan, which is still a great outcome. Congrats.
