Yup, don't screw up the PS, and you're in at one or more of YHS.

The GPA makes you unpredictable.  You'll get into some t14s with the 166, but it's hard to guess which ones.  Probably Cornell/GULC/Duke.  Maybe MVP.  I wouldn't say a t6, but who knows.

I think he has a shot at CCN.  He should apply to all of the T14, of course.  Since he's been out of school for so long I don't think his GPA matters so much.  And he's a black male, of course.

Yeah, I'm curious to see how the no-AA thing affects Mich.  Might make a difference, might not.

As for CCN, yeah he has a shot.  I just wouldn't bet on it.  Being black doesn't cure all.

Thanks for the hope. I have considered taking the test again in September, but man oh man that would be a female dog. I personally don't think no-AA will affect UMich significantly, because at the end of the day the adcoms will push which ever agenda they want to set forth. I just hope the liberals in place at the various university adcoms across the nation continue to believe that though AA is not a solution it is damn sho better than nothin

For the recent posters with June scores: Did I read correctly that the scale was -8 for a 170?

Correct -8 for 170

FWIW, they actually had staff blacking out the race section on all apps yet to be reviewed, and that was mid-cycle this past year.  The Dean of Admissions seems to think the entire affair is pretty moronic, but they appear to be taking the letter of the law rather seriously.

That's what the PS is for.  ;)

The approach is the same as if you were applying to Boalt.
