NYU?
Columbia?
Penn?
Chicago?
Georgetown?
Harvard?

Rank my chances of admission to each from 1, most likely to 6, least likely. Thanks everyone.

That's quite a range.

170 - I'd say Penn and Georgetown are a possibility, with the others being reaches. 

176 - autoadmit to Gtown, NYU, and very good shot at Columbia and Chicago.  Penn's weird, you can never tell with them.

In either case, chance at Harvard = 0, as they don't take non URM's with below 3.6's anymore.

I had virtually that same GPA and a 173 and got into NYU, Gtown, and Columbia.  Rejected from the other 3.

You do have a shot at Harvard with a 176, especially if you have a major or if you went to a college that is known for low GPAs, and you have good soft factors. But it's a low shot. Maybe a 2 out of 10.

With a 170, all these schools are reaches. Maybe G*town, maybe Penn.
Columbia 2L.

Not if this cycle is indicative of a new trend in their admissions.

Out of everyone accepted with below the 3.6, all are URM's, except for two, one of which is clearly a flame (151, 2.0), and the other which is either a flame or the guy has serious connections.

Obviously, LSN may not be perfectly representative of the applicant pool in general, but the fact that there are people with below the 3.6 who got the Toby call and were subsequently rejected says something.

This is the guy I was referring to with serious connections.  He claims to have uncles who are professors at both Harvard and Yale.  I think this may be a flame anyway.
