I'm hoping I can raise my GPA to a 3.4. Where do you think I can get in then?

Also does work experience increase chances at all.  I've worked at the US Department of Education and US Department of Housing and Urban Development

Both are definitely possible for you. I was accepted to GULC and waitlisted at UVA with similar stats (162, 3.27). With a great PS/DS and good recommendations, you have a good shot...good luck!

You'll get into both.  As of now, CCN are targets and you should get into the rest of the t-14 (not including Michigan and Berkeley).  If you can get your GPA to a 3.4, Harvard is within reach.
