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.
