I know, that's what I thought. I don't think she is a URM. She hasn't mentioned it on any of her posts, and she is not on LSN. Now I'm really going to be dissapointed if my 3.6/162 can't swing me in PT.
I think the NYC, DC, and Boston schools purposely underestimate those numbers. Nothing against any of the aforementioned cities (I have lived in DC & Boston and loved them both), but I think they know how many prospective students would be turned away each year if they accurately estimated those numbers.
