I have a friend who is considering applying to law school. His parents are Brazilian and he was born in Brazil, but he has lived his entire life in the US. Would he qualify as a URM?

166+ makes you pretty much golden...
I am drafting an email to a professor to ask for a LOR. I feel at this point, email is the best method of contact because it's been a few years since I was in this professor's class. Does anyone have an example of an email they used for this purpose? If not, anyone have suggestions on how to phrase the email?
Common advice on this board is that it makes a huge difference to get your apps in early, especially if you have borderline numbers. I am taking the LSAT in September, and by that time should have all other parts of my applications complete. I have a 3.4 and will hopefully be around 168-172 on the LSAT. My question is this, since I am somewhat of a splitter and I won't have my score until late October...will that be early enough to have a good chance at top schools or should I wait until the following year and get my apps in at the earliest possible date?
