HLS GPA floor different for URM?

So many acronyms. I've heard a consensus of a 3.6-3.7 floor for Harvard. Does the floor change for URM students?

Yeah, it does for basically every school. I've seen URMs with a 3.2 get Harvard (of course their LSATs had to be high)

Everything lowers. The LSAT floor included. Go to lawschoolnumbers.com and check out various schools before and after checking the "urm" box.

^^ There's a solid example of the lowered requirements. Micho got a ton of scholarship money almost everywhere they applied. Also got into Harvard w/ a 164 LSAT and 3.55 gpa.

GPA trends/undergrad can make a difference. FWIW I'm latino, got into Stanford and Yale (Harvard WL) with a 3.7 (and mid 160s), but my final 2 years I had a 3.9, and I went to Yale undergrad.
