Law school is not a romantic relationship. I have taken no life long vows, no till-death-do-us-part bs....I dont see why it needs to be such a cruel breakup...i thought the process would be a peaceful transition without any broken arms or legs, and a sour taste to live with. What is the world coming to?

Forgive me if I misunderstand, but please clarify.

Y cant that assumption be extended to white candidates, who have splitter numbers that got them in...what I mean is, anyone, regardless of race, is less likely to make the top journals, if we assume they came in with lower numbers and are generally less capable than the student body. It is highly unlikely, but certainly not improbable that a splitter, regardless of race, will do perfectly fine at the law school. But thats besides the point. I think if URMs with lower scores are more likely to struggle to succeed, the same can be said for their white counterparts who also came in with lower numbers.

Y even begin with the assumption that URMs have low GPA/LSAT?

Its not necessarily true that they would choose a higher ranked school if substantial scholarship money is offered.

Ok we get it..its BAD..actually thats the understatement of the year...but theres gotta be something that we can take away from wonders..maybe I will come back to that one when I have an answer.
