Apply early, but not ED. Just get your app in early in the cycle. Your odds aren't great, but they're not horrible. You'll definitely get into at least a couple of the T14.
Not to sound overly harsh here, but I'm a 3.6/178 and I'm not feeling 100% "assured" for admission into Columbia and Chicago. Nevermind Harvard and Yale.Of course, don't let me dissuade you. It's just, well, extreme confidence in others is annoying when you don't have nearly as much in your own chances.My advice? Don't apply ED anywhere if you're not 100% certain you would attend that school over another one you're applying. Sounds simplistic, but so be it.
wow i feel like i shouldnt be applying at all. "your odds aren't that great" well yeah because of my GPA huh? sh*t, i had some sh*t i went through my sophomore year and thats why its low.

Oh, and I'd avoid profanity in your applications...Don't be too discouraged by what people here say, you have to make your own decisions. I will agree with annonymous that it's slightly irritating to hear someone speak of Columbia and Chicago as "back-ups."
