maybe i misread it but i nott see anything that showed that they study less efficienty because they thought they would look dumb to others if they did poorly.
"The threat made them inefficient on a test that, like most standardized tests, is set up so that thinking long often means thinking wrong,"
now inefficient on a test isnt not studying inefficiently.
also on the lsat, where time is the most important variable i can see somewhat (not justifibly though) how that can factor in, but pretty much every exam URMs do worse and many of those time is not an issue, like the SAT. seriously time isnt a factor on the SAT, its a pretty simple exam which gives u much more time than u need, yet only like 125 black males score above 1400 in the entire nation per year.
