Subject's pretty explanatory. I got a GPA between 3.8-3.9 at a lower t14 in fall semester. I am a 1L. Median was about a 3.3-3.4. What are the chances at Harvard? Chicago?

If i apply before the end of the semester would the schools wait for my Spring grades before making a decision or would I be assessed on my fall grades alone?

Great post. Super helpful.

OP, if you have those kinds of grades you don't really need to go to CCN. It won't be enough of a jump for it to be worth it. I'd imagine HYS is in the cards though, and would be especially helpful if you're looking to clerk, or looking into public interest. There's been a lot of threads like this though. I'd do a search to see what others have said.

Thanks. The link is responsive to OP's second question. The checklist says that full year grades are required.

You would be out of your mind to transfer unless Y/H, and I doubt either of those would be worth it.
