How much does URM status matter?

Postby thelawschoolproject » Wed Oct 26, 2011 12:18 am

I've heard several conflicting views on how much URM status boosts your application. So, I'm wondering what the general consensus is on how much of a "boost" the following URM statuses garner.

-African American
-Native American
-Mexican American

Feel free to add others.

Thanks for the help.

ETA: Preferably in terms of LSAT boost points.

A little premature, but it will probably go that way. But in short, it matters A LOT.

There's a search function.

Stop being a lazy fuck and use it.

I've heard that AA gets you a 10 point bump, and everything else is less than that.
