Didn'y Denny Crane go to Swarthmore?  OP, you might want to track him down and ask him a few more questions/ compare application strategies.

and FWIW I said add HYS not just because of the numbers and URM status but also because of the owning your own business thing and the work experience.

Yale is tossup.  You're in HS.


I still wouldn't trade being smart for a few free lsat points.
