Location (city, state, country): Lincoln, NE

Since I graduated UNL, I've been working in Korea where I am originally from. (graduated in Dec 2013)
I was just curious about my chances - I aim for Top14, especially HARVARD
Do I need a higher LSAT score to apply for HARVARD?

3.56/170 are excellent numbers, and you will easily get into many law schools, and with scholarships.

Harvard is probably out, as are Yale and Stanford. Go ahead and apply, but you would probably need a higher GPA and LSAT for all three.

Other T14s like Columbia and Chicago are a maybe, and you best bet would be places like Northwestern.

As always, think about where you want to live and what you want to do, not just school rankings.
