Hi, new to this thread but been reading through it today, really good stuffThis question is directed to A. and Kirk Lazarus:Do you guys have insight regarding urm admissions? Not just "chances", but how these law schools actually go about deliberating on black applicants. I'm applying this cycle and it seems like our decisions come a little delayed relative to the rest of the pool. Do these schools have special committees or something? Does the BLSA get involved? Just curious, thanks!

Nice chances at Y and S if your essays are good."H down"Are you seriously putting SLS before HLS? I can see people putting YLS ahead of HLS, but come on.....HLS is the mother of all law schools.

More likely than not that you will get in.
