Does anybody know what kind of reliability admissions predictors (hourmd, LSP) have when predicting URM admissions? Seems like there's so little data out there on URM admissions, I'm wondering if it's a reliable reference as to where I should apply as a URM.

I do not have emperical evidence of the degree of underestimation. That being said, softs are significant for URM's and since there is no way to rank softs, getting one's numbers in the percentiles(top 2%) of the URM group one represents is a good start.
