I have a 170.
And I'm feeling inferior.
You shouldn't! A 170 is a stellar score and you should be proud of it. I'm pretty sure at that point you're even immune from the incessant "retake" chorus.
That's sweet even if it's coming from the girl with a 179.
As far as this 170+ proliferation goes, I feel like it's even worse that the 1/2 AA people who check both boxes aren't included in the statistics. I think you count as AA for law school purposes if you check the AA box at all. Not including the 1/2 AAs when law schools make no distinction gives people an inaccurate idea of where they stand. How are you supposed to know how your score stacks up against others of your race if a significant number of people from your race aren't being counted? SMH.
Do you think the top 14 schools are going to say, no, this person is 1/2 AA so they aren't diverse and shouldn't get the boost? The chances of that happening are, like, less than zero. Schools going to take the most compelling applicants who can be counted as enhancing the diversity of their law school class.
