To promote diversity, law schools actively seek qualified African American, Latino, Asian, and Native American students, as well as other students of color.

Who are qualified Asians?
Law schools actively seek Asians with 3.8+ GPAs and 170+ LSATs to add much needed diversity and increase representation in the legal field. In fact, law schools will boost their admission chances by judging their LSAT score "as-is", instead of subtracting 3~4 points first. Also most schools will take an Asian's highest LSAT score if he retakes.
