What does URM stand for?
And shepherds we shall be, for thee my Lord for thee, power hath descended forthfrom thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command. We shall flow a river forth to thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be. In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti.

URM = LSAT + 10

Ooooh, that's cold BUT I'll take it! hehehe! ;)
"Yes, I'm URM!  And if you think for a min that I'm going to turn down any law school acceptance 'cause you feel I don't deserve it, you must be high on something.  I'm not giving up my seat at the front of the bus! Deal with it!" - LSN Unknown

In the context of Law school admissions he was just telling the truth.  URM is a booster to both your GPA and LSAT score.  It's the truth, but of course you can choose to deny it as you please.

I agree, some people just dont want to admit that there's an unfair advantage to being a URM in the application/acceptance process.

I think the "fair"/"unfair" part of the advantage is what they're debating.

Is there anyone on here who is arguing that there is not an advantage for URMs in law school admissions?
