If someone has a 3.32 and a 158, this is showing an average academic ability, correct? However, the URM thing gives them extra points on the scores?(Still do not get that).
My point is, the schools that you are discussing are the highest ranking schools within the world of law schools. They gained the prestige through admitting higher level applicants as well as forcing their students to endure a rigorous 3 years of higher than normal course work.
Has anyone ever considered that if average scores from average course work would be a major disadvantage to getting into a top school? Could you possibly be mentally prepared to keep up with the elite?
I am not saying you won't get in, I hope you do. This post just seemed like a good place to bring up the question.
