I do have data for two other top 10 law schools, Boalt and Michigan, from the mid-1990s (there is no reason to believe the data has changed much since then).1996 was the last class at Boalt Law School before Prop. 209 affected admissions. The entering students's stats were as follows (source: American Lawyer, November 1997):LSAT(%ile) GPANonminorities 168 (96.9) 3.72Asian 166 (95.0) 3.71Hispanic 159 (80.5) 3.50Black 155 (67.0) 3.54Similarly, we learn from the district court opinion in Grutter v. Bollinger that in 1995, another top ten state law school, the University of Michigan, had the following statistics: white students had a median LSAT score of 167 and a median GPA of 3.59, while the corresponding figures were 155 and 3.18 for African American students, and 159 and 3.35 for Mexican American students.
For African Americans: 12-13 LSAT boost.2-.4 GPA boost
