I was looking at the LSN graph of admissions to Cornell. ( http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/graphs.php?cycle=5&school_code=2098 )
I'm not going to debate the merits or pitfalls of affirmative action, I just had a question. The bulk of accepts are in the 166+ LSAT and 3.5+ GPA. I noticed a few people accepted with numbers are low as mid 150's LSATs and low 3 GPA's. However, each of these people were "self selected under-represented minorities". Does this mean as a non-"URM" with a 161 and a 3.8 I stand no shot, even though people are being accepted with 156's?
Also, is there a list somewhere of exactly what constitutes a "URM"?
I have a 3.8 GPA from a fourth tier public university, 161 LSAT. Coming straight from undergrad. Worked one summer at a law firm. Throughout college worked in student government doing everything from senator, to attorney general, to election chairman.
Also considering applying to Cornell as a far, far reach with a unique personal statement.
Maybe I'm the only one, but who knows :p
GPA 3.8 + Soft Factors (Many Student Government positions including SG Attorney General; Internship at Law Office)
I ROCKED the RC that everyone feared. I lost almost ALL of my points in LG. I tried for months to learn how to do them, but my brain just does not operate that way. Damn you marzipan cake layer!
I've heard that the June LSAT will contain, among the reading comp passages, one comparative passage (which entails contrasting two smaller 2-3 paragraph passages).
Is this correct? Is this a relatively new thing?
