As I take the information in this thread, I'm led to believe that as an AA male: should a person score above a 168/170—out of everyone who takes the LSAT in a given cycle, you'll be able to put them and the roughly 10 other people who scored above that in the same room?
Like there were literally 4 AA males 170> last cycle and less than 20 AA total above a 167?
Please tell me I'm reading something improperly or misinterpreting the info.

The number of black test takers drastically reduced as well, the data is for LSAT administration that ran through 2011 (JUN) -2012 (FEB). I broke down the total number of test takers as a whole and data for males and females as well. Keep in mind the SDs are unique to each data set so the numbers add up weird. But the data still pretty much tells the same story as the OP.
4217 test takers
2 above SD (161): 71
2.5 above SD (165): 21
3 above SD (170): 4
7236 test takers
2 above SD(158): 123
2.5 above SD (162): 36
3 above SD (167): 7
11453 test takers
2 above SD (159): 194
2.5 above SD(164): 57
3 above SD(167): 11
Keep in mind that these are very rough numbers and GPA and other factors must be taken into account when we walk about admissions. Also look out for the updated admissions data that will start trickling out in August and September for the class that will be entering this fall. Make sure you are registering for resources like lawschoolnumbers.com as well to add to the information we already have. Good luck in the upcoming cycle!
