I think you'll get in to Penn...but I think it may be after the first wave.  :)

You're in for a really successful cycle.

I'd say in at Duke and Boalt.  No guess on UVA.  Penn I think you will either be waitlisted or held onto until later in the cycle (and the decision will be based on their need for higher LSATs).

Accepted everywhere except Virginia and Columbia, where you will be rejected. You spend next year at Boalt wondering why you didn't apply to Stanford and Harvard with your numbers.

If Kat isn't accepted to UVa - we're talking waitlist at the very worst.  UVa doesn't outright reject many highly competitive candidates. Penn's an acceptance, I'm very confident that Duke will be as well.  Boalt's hard to guess, but they'll love your GPA in tandem with your LSAT.  Signs look good, but it's difficult to predict Boalt.

Don't count on CLS unless you went to a top UG.  They're arguably the most LSAT-whorish of all top law schools -- even more than Harvard and Yale.  Without a 172 and/or URM status, it's virtually impossible to get in.

I think you will get in at Boalt with your GPA. I also think Columbia will be a ding, but you never know.
