Very unlikely to get into HYS without an LSAT score.  Sorry.

anybody have any worthwile feedback?  49 views and nothing?

My feedback: do what botbot implies and get your lsat score before you even ask this question.

If you score a 174, you should know from a simple look at the US News data that with your GPA, you're in the range for those schools.  Then it will obviously depend on how interesting and appealing of a candidate you appear to be.

The reason I ask and don't just look up numbers on LSN is, because I have somewhat of a unique circumstance.  I graduated in 3 years with a B.S. and a B.A. from a top-public school.  Normally I would think that this would help me, but I've heard that it has often hurt other candidates in the past.  What do you guys think my chances are at HYS?  Even Columbia and UChicago?

I don't think this is that unique.

The numbers on LSN should be accurate.

I was wondering if you guys could give me a little feedback on what you think my chances would be at HYS.  My final undergraduate LSAC GPA is a 3.85 and my LSAT, I haven't taken it yet, but am consistently practicing in the mid-170s.  Lets say I get a 174 (I know nothing is assured come LSAT day, but I think 174 is a reasonable estimate right now).

btw... I have been extremely involved in undergrad and am not a URM (I am trilingual though).

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Just apply and don't make any f'ups on your app.  Don't "ask what your chances are" and let this board give you false hope or anxiety--because truth be told, many have no freakin idea what they're talking about.  They're in pretty much the same position as you.

Learning for yourself is fun!

The entire "Where Should I Go Next Fall" 'bored' should be replaced with this link.
I don't want to do it if it hurts or if it makes you get all sticky.

I don't have a problem with these kinds of questions on that board, because

(a) Some people don't know about LSN;
(b) People want personal assurance; and
(c) People who don't like sorting through those kinds of threads can avoid that board.

Of course, (c) does not apply to this post.

Pretty damn good for h, since their current medians are 3.85/173.

(on edit: whoops, just the midpoints of their 25th/75th splits:
Entering Class Profile 2007-2008
GPA 75th / 25th percentiles: 3.95 / 3.75
LSAT 75th / 25th percentiles: 175 / 170)
