I know that certain URMS get larger boosts than others, like AA males are the biggest for example. What about the others like PR and MA? I know this is obviously not exact or scientific but do certain groups have a numbered boost (like +5 lsat points or something)?

Re: URM LSAT Boosts

I'm pretty sure I saw this question on this board worded in a very similar fashion a year or two ago.

Anyway, there's no such thing as an LSAT "boost". All test takers are scored according to the number of correct responses alone, leaving race to be completely irrelevant to one's score.

Individual law schools are left to determine for themselves how much of a role one's race will play in the application process.
