Blatant Racism Really Boils My Blood

Postby NYC2014 » Wed Sep 05, 2012 1:26 pm

Since in 2007–2008 there were only 16 Blacks nationwide who scored at 168 or above, that’s the number of Blacks that should’ve entered the top six schools...[There are] 179 Blacks at top law schools. Actual Blacks at top law schools divided by deserving Blacks = 179/16 = 11.2...So there are about 10 undeserving Blacks at the top six law schools for every one deserving case.

If you have a score of 163 (90th percentile) and you’re White forget about the top 14, but if you’re Black expect to get into the top six...About 300 people (mostly whites) are locked out of T14 schools every fall to make room for Blacks.

Disclaimer: not defending anything but math.

I don't know where OP got his numbers, but they don't seem far off.
http://www.lsac.org/lsacresources/resea ... -10-03.pdf Page 20

Number of test takers and mean and standard deviation (SD)
of LSAT scores by race/ethnicity, 2009–2010
Race/Ethnicity 2009–2010
Black/African American
N 14,585
Mean 142.04
SD 8.74
White/Caucasian
N 79,799
Mean 152.86
SD 9.33

By this, it suggests that ~10 AAs will achieve a score of 170+ (.07%)
and 2,642 caucasians will do the same (3.31%, or 47 times as likely)

I honestly find it hard to wrap my head around that.

^LSAC once left their national decision profiles unprotected so one could hardlink to them. The profiles have been taken down, but they contained data such as the exact number of applicants with certain LSAT scores broken down by ethnicity.

But this thread is stupid.

Hey, you want to start a white guy club? I feel incredible oppressed as a white, heterosexual male growing up in the U.S., and I feel like fellow white guys should unite. The rest of the country really doesn't have a clue how hard we have it, and we should share our pain as loudly and vocally as possible.

Pretty sure he is just saying that old racist article is racist. Perhaps everyone landed on the wrong square on the mat.

I believe race shouldn't be a factor in admissions in any scenario(shocker, white kid here), but instead it should be socio-economic status. I wouldn't be helped in that system either, but I find it off putting that a rich URM from a privileged background will have a much better chance of getting in than a dirt poor white kid(or less impressive URM than AA).

Just my two cents.
