But OVERALL, I see that it is true. Nonetheless, a separation of threads is ridiculous. Good luck to everyone this cycle! And if anyone took today's LSAT, what'd you think?
Weak characterization of AA admissions "bumps" vs "Hispanic/Latinx" &PR..Without out any stats or examples. Generally a PR admit, would get more of a "bump" in admissions. Overall then a "Hispanic/Latinx" and and a AA admit. based on the general stat assumption's, of ABA Law School admissions. Overall there were less PR admits in 2016 accepted,to,ABA Law Schools. Then any other URM, other then "Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander" and "American Indian/Alaska Native".. Also according to LSAC MA = "Hispanic/ Latinx".. "Hispanic\Latinx" admits, were also the most represented URM.. Accepted to ABA law school's in 2016, compared to AA and PR admits.. The poster is not fully correct,based on that assumption/stat. While neither are you... According to LSAC in 2016 overall..
Admitted Applicants by Race/Ethnicity & Sex
The current volume summary of admitted applicants by race/ethnicity and sex is available below. Please note:
•These data display Academic Year. Academic year reflects the law school enrollment year. For example, academic year 2016 or 2016–2017 would indicate the academic year beginning in fall 2016 and extending into spring 2017.
• Data starting in 2016 include applicants for all terms and do not include deferrals. Deferrals are defined as “applicants admitted for a prior term who were granted a postponed enrollment to the current term.”
•Archived data for 2015 and prior years (2000–2009 ethnicity data, 2010–2015 race/ethnicity data, and 2000–2015 gender/sex data) include applicants for the fall term only and also include deferrals; therefore, archived data are not comparable to current data.
•Racial/ethnic data incorporate maximum reporting, which means that candidates may select multiple races/ethnicities. All selections are counted in each racial/ethnic group. As a result of this overlap, summing the racial/ethnic category totals will yield a larger number than is represented by the “All” group total.
•These data reflect final end-of-year counts of admitted applicants to ABA-approved law schools.
•“All” admitted applicants are rounded to the nearest hundred. All other volumes are rounded to the nearest ten.
