What are the lowest GPAs you have seen admitted to HYS with a 173+ LSAT score? Feeling hopeless rn

It entirely depends.

What are your stats, and what are your career goals?

YLS publishes these data, FYI

Do note that the massive range of the bottom quartile implies that the 3.32 person probably had some amazing things going on in the rest of their app. Like, I don't know, a URM astronaut with a 178 who got Sotomayor to make a phone call.

Generally it's safe to say that YS are very difficult below 3.8 and H is very difficult below 3.6. In other words: 3.6/180 is a presumptive reject at YS and 3.4/180 is a presumptive reject at H. This isn't really a big deal because the former applicant has a good shot for Harvard and both can expect solid scholarships in the T14.
