ok so why not just list for us your employment history?
Stanford gives him a leg up for sure but the URM thing has nothing to do with what area of law one wants to practice in. Minority status is irrelavent at that point. Sounds more like he wants URM status to help his app out.
don't be a male private part. It's obvious that URM status helps and evaluating his chances withot this info would be pointless.This guy wasn't on the SCOTUS when AA was upheld, don't act like he's the reason AA is here.
I cant speak for your chances however I can say that public sector work (esp DA) is just as competitive as BIGLAW. Its very difficult to get a DA job from tier 3 when people from NYU/Columbia would love those as well...
I take it you haven't applied yet.Being an URM gives you a major leg up at many schools. Since URMs make up a small percentage of the number of people applying, schools are more likely to forgive a weaker than average LSAT and/or GPA for diversity's sake.
Guess what, employment history effects the process as well so by your logic we cant evaluate his chances without that info either. Especially given the low LSAT.HTH

Especially given the low LSAT.HTHIf you think employment history helps 1% as much as being a URM does, then, well, have fun at Cooley.Again, I'm not saying its right, but it is the way it is. URM status is nearly as important as GPA and its a lot easier to type URM (and a lot less likely to divulge too much personal info) than it is to post your resume. You aren't this stupid, I know you aren't, so quit acting like you are.It's attitudes like this that keep getting AA upheld. As long as you keep attacking people who have no role whatsoever in whether or not schools give AA, you are going to help sway people's opinions AGAINST you.
First of all, I dont give a holy @#!* about AA.Instead of having a reasoned response you went straight for insults. You realize this only reveals your stupidity? Youre not to stupid to realize that fact, are you?Understand what I said before you respond. Oh, and rather than gleaning a lot of anecdotal evidence on the URM factor from this site and xoxo, nasc, why dont you show me a regression or something that shows the weight non LSAT and non GPA factors have in the acceptance process?All I said was 149 + URM is probably not sufficient. Therefore, URM is not relavent to this question because it likely wont make up for a bad LSAT score. Get a 155 or something and then maybe I say, ok it might help you at the T2 level.HTFH
