I think you are pretty golden at the lower end of that list and stand a decent chance at the rest. Make sure your PS, DS and LORs are the shit.

Bump.

So chances at Harvard at 50/50?

Stanford in/WL and Columbia out?

How is Stanford easier to get into than Harvard. Always thought it was the other way around?

I think because Harvard gives more weight to the LSAT, so 168 is probably out considering your GPA. Also, I don't think Berkley is necessarily a lock. They have a weird admissions criteria and my understanding is they prefer people with higher GPA than yours and unique softs. Good luck on MVP etc. though!
