Retake only if you're certain you will improve.

It's the UGPA + applying so late.  With a split, you do need to be first out of the gate and have to apply widely.

23
Although it's almost impossible to predict splitters, you'll probably get in.  If I were you, I'd apply to all of the top 6.

Congrats.  Yeah I'd consider money at the other places.  They'll still get you biglaw, but you won't have to write a fat check to a loan provider every month once you get there.  Trust me, there are other things you'd rather do with the money, like invest or save it, or even buy a nice watch or a new suit.  That said, if Harvard offers decent aid, go with it.

sure. as someone that has already graduated, i'm sure youve got a better grasp of what BIG DEBT means than I do.

And mine isn't nearly as bad as others' (esp. those who also have ugrad debt...)

i've heard people mention that employment prospects are better for urms than others, all else equal. therefore, I wonder if an above median urm would still have a shot at the super-elite firms coming out of a chicago or nyu given that some dont come to oci.

There aren't that many firms that don't interview at Chi and NYU (only Jenner DC immediately comes to mind...and I don't recall whether they interview at Chi, which is still considered more elite than NYU in those circles).  Whether they're even that great is up for debate (Jenner in particular).

also, is there something to be said for having HYS on the resume should one decide to transition out of law?

Sure.  Can't deny that.  But if you're going to be in NYC, Columbia is just as good.  Otherwise, HY certainly have more lay appeal (Stanford is debatable on the East Coast...I don't think that gets you any further than Columbia).

Target the mid-t14.  You should get into some.  Apply to CCN and H too.

27
Hm this is all good material.  You can use both in the same PS if you can connect them seamlessly.  That would be my first recommendation.  Otherwise, make them separate essays.

28
Congrats.  Just be yourself; the hard part is over.

29
indeed...

Not likely.  LSAT needs to be a few points higher.
