The most "URM friendly" schools

Postby socraticmethodman » Tue Dec 28, 2010 9:21 am

What t20 schools are the most URM friendly? I have heard that NYU is very URM friendly, meaning they are known for accepting URMs with lower lsat scores. I also read that the U of Chicago use to give URMs up to a 10 pt increase on their lsat score. Are any other schools known for accepting URMs with lower scores?

"Hate hate hate arrogant arrogant arrogant arrogant" jk
um you can go to the lsac webcite and see what percentage of the class is a certain minority.
I think you are right about the NYU thing. Maybe Harvard out of HYS. NYU out of CCN. UVA out of MVP. Then georgetown, cornell, wustl....
This is all wild speculation though.......

All of them. Apply as broadly as possible and hope for a bite.

I think it all depends on the school. I've noticed HLS/CLS giving minor bumps to URMs with ivy UG degrees. UVA gives a nice URM bump to VA residents. Cal and to a lesser extent SLS give URM bumps for reverse splitters. Chicago/NYU are very nice to lower LSATs (low 160s). It varies amongst the t20 for sure. And this is all based on anecdotal evidence observed from board posters/LSN.
