I was wondering if you think I have a shot at Harvard or Yale. I am hesitant to waste my application material if I were to be a reapplicant.
URM Latinx (yes one of the latinx ones that supposedly gives boost)
Non first gen student
First gen American
Fulbright and a couple of cool internships
Masters from ivy
I was thinking of retaking the lsat in April just to have another score to submit (no idea if they'd even look at this) / prepare for the high possibility of being a reapplicant. As of now, I’m sprinkling T14, but wondering if a shot in the dark now to Harvard and Yale is a total waste or not. I am eager to apply simply because I feel so old so it’d be better not to wait, BUT I will do it if need be.
Thanks for any insight and I know my score isn’t that hot (my anxiety made me blank on most of the logic games) so I am hoping I can overcome that and get a 170ish my next take. Fingers crossed.

Not sure if you read the FAQ page for Harvard admissions, but last LSAT they take is February and they don't hold decisions for future scores, signing up for April won't do anything for this cycle. Same for Yale, they don't hold apps for future scores, you can see it on their admissions process page.
If you're not happy with your results this cycle, you can prepare for the lsat, retake and reapply earlier next cycle, this could be the best you could do. Best of luck in this process, OP.
