Law School Applications / Obsession

LSN tells us that applications completed in January are decided upon in March usually. It also shows us that high scorers usually get their decisions within weeks and much earlier than March. If this is all true we must just be flat out freaks for checking the status of our applications daily through status checkers and this board. That is, for those of who us who did not score in the 170s.

Since Michigan is required to be race-blind in their admissions process, how will this affect URMs? And the rest of us?
