A+ ---> Study
Not the other way around
Thank you for conceding this point! That's one of the things i've been trying to say! Just because blacks (or anyone else) study hard does NOT mean they will get a good lsat score. Up until this post you were saying that it was sufficient and that it was the only reason that blacks do not score as high. That's simply not true, there are other more complex reasons. A lot of people on TLS attribute blacks underscoring to what is an essentially a reversal of that simple powerscore reasoning rule. I don't understand why they want to apply these rules to everything except this issue.
I never said that! There are myriad reasons why blacks don't score high. One of them is that they don't need to score as high and study accordingly. But that is only one of many reasons. I concede that you brought up many of the others, I just wish you'd acknowledge that I brought up one as well!
