You'll have excellent options in the T14. I wouldn't be shocked in the least if you got a full ride somewhere. Just make the rest of your application clean and coherent and you'll be in great shape.

Yale and Stanford are not out of the question. Still apply to them if you think you would go if you were accepted. However, you might get enough money from another t14 that it might not make sense to go to HYS.

I'd still shoot an app to YS.

High GPA/low LSAT is more common with URM's so you're unique.
You have a median/above median LSAT so I think both are in play. I wouldn't say likely because those schools aren't likely for anyone, but it's definitely worth a shot if you can spare the app fees.

That being said, T13 big scholarships are preferable if you are debt adverse and want to enter the private sector.

You're a solid applicant. Good luck.

I agree with everyone saying apply everywhere you want! That LSAT is median at Yale and yes, the GPA is on the lower side for them, but it's still a great GPA and they do report their lowest as 3.43 last year, so still quite possible! I would think shoe-in at CCN on down and probably with $$.

Hope someday you'll bump this thread debating between YS and full ride at Columbia/NYU ;)
