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?
