3.05 lsdas gpa top 25 undergrad + URM = what GPA in admission process?

I know school rep matter and URM status matters to a degree....but how would this translate into GPA points ...or even lsat points for that matter?? I am asking so I have a better idea of what schools to apply too.

You don't get GPA pts for being a URM, you only get them for going to a school known for grade deflation and points in general for being a legacy.

What is your LSAT score?

It's easier to quantify for your LSAT, depending on how much of an URM you are, guesstimate around 10 extra points on the LSAT and you're in the ballpark.

There's the thread where they have the info.

Makes your angry at your white parents, doesn't it?  "Couldn't at least one of you have married a URM, come on now!!" :P
