It doesn't matter how large your dataset is, all that counts
is how many observations are used in your estimation, and
that is 33 (and only 22 in your probit model), which is a 
major problem when you want to estimate 13 parameters. Anyhow, 
the linear probability model is not the most obvious solution 
to your problem: 

First, simplify your model by using much less variables, 
I'd say an absolute maximum of 3 variables (10 obs per 

Second, use -exlogisitc- if you want to retain the variables 
that perfectly predict your outcome, which as I stated before
was the reason that your -probit- model was mis-behaving.

Hope this helps,
