I don't mind, LSDAS GPA is 3.24 and my LSAT is below 150. The acceptance was more than a surprise to me, quite shocking in fact...but I'm assuming that being a URM probably helped me out and I have a lot of confidence in my personal statement and diversity statement.

They responded quite fast too, I applied on 11/27.

What kind of minority are you?  An alien?  I am shocked that they would admit such low numbers regardless of minority status.

I meant no offense.  That is impressive.  I just wanted to know a bit more about your soft factors...

i dont think he was really trying to be mean, just funny, and it didnt translate well in type.  those are really low numbers for WM, but that doesnt mean you robbed them, there could have been some other stuff in your app besided urm that they really liked.

but urm is the big shot in the arm of course.

in any case, fanastic job, and good luck on the rest of your cycle

My extracurriculars are not extremely impressive, but I'm vice president of a campus organization that mentors inner city youth. One of my parents is incarcerated and I'm from a very, very small, rural town. I focused on those things for my personal statement and diversity statement.

Don't worry, I have a sense of humour, so I'm laughin' it off lol. But yeah it's true, the numbers are low.

So your LSAT was below a 150? Was it like a 149 or lower; what exactly was it? I'm not a minority candidate but I'm on the edge with numbers on some of my applications. What exactly would you say benefitted you in the W & M application and what did you really focus on? Thanks and congrats!  ;D
