The OP obviously has a rather poor understanding of the LSAT's curve.1) Blue is right, nobody actually gives two shits about a 170. 2) However, the LSAT is on a curve where one's score equals their performance relative to others.3) Thus, you are actually weighted by your performance and then the score is assigned.4) Therefore, even though nobody wants a 170, somebody has to get it. Think about it this way, somebody has to finish at the very top even if they weren't intending to. 5) Those lucky ducks.6) I outlined this so the OP would get it.
To inform you all I am an URM.From the research that I have done many students have made it into Harvard with my numbers.My mentor, who graduated from Yale University, got into Yale with a 165 lsat and a 3.7 G.P.A.
OP, I'm sorry these people are being jerks. To answer your question, no one on here want to go to HARVARD. They're simply not motivated enough. That said, 170 is pretty high. Most people aim for 169 tops.::amused::
I am determined to attend Harvard Law School. There is no other school that I would rather be. My only huge concern is the LSAT. I have a 3.5 GPA, which means I would have to score at least a 170 on the LSAT to be competitive. I know that it is possible if I remain diligent and optimistic. I am about to embark on a 6 month study plan to prepare for the June 2009 LSAT. I just wanted to know is there any one out there aiming for a 170 and aiming to get into HARVARD LAW? If so, how are you going about achieving it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!Thanks!
In my experience, both Harvard and Yale have a higher ratio of insufferable elitists

First, there are douchebags everywhere. I've met some from schools that are just barely ranked. Second, how does this relate to Yale? (really the only reason I replied)
