i don't know for students, but i spoke with a black prof. from one of the ivy league schools, and he admitted (even though he was brilliant) that there were more qualified white prof than he, but the school needed to raise its number of black prof. so he was offered the jobhe then went on to say that black prof. were the hottest thing to have for all the ivy league schools, and you could be a slightly above average black male prof. and get offered a lot more money than you were worthjust throwing this out there for waht its worth
Well if you search this board you'll find URMs with LSATs in the 163 area who get into Columbia, and URMs with scores lower than 170 who got into Yale and Harvard. While no matter what their experiences and GPAs, unless they have absolutley phenomenal connections no white male with a LSAT lower than 175 is getting into Yale. I'm not neccisarily implying that I'm against AA, that's a very complex debate involving many diffeent variables, but it's ridiculous to deny that being a URM doesn't play a significant role in law school admissions.
legacies can be of any race? I don't support it, but there are notable differences between legacy and AA?
