URM undergrade GPA and LSAT are lower than NON URM.

Its a causal chain of events. For socioeconomic reasons, less go to good grade schools, and so less graduate highschool, and so less go to college, and so less graduate collge, and so less apply to law schools, and so less eventually attend law school.

URMs major in whatever they want.

Undergrad? Yes. Law school? Its a crap shoot for everyone.

---------------

There is no reason to believe a URM with a particular set of numbers would perform any worse than a non URM with a particular set of numbers. Anyone below both medians is statistically more likely to end up below the median in law school.

You're being remarkably nonspecific. Are you referring to average GPAs? I can find you many URM students that have far higher GPAs than non-URM students. If you are in fact referring to average GPAs, I'm sure that there are hard numbers out there that can give you an approximate range of URM GPAs in law school, which means you don't need to ask the question here. I still call troll.

People often do well when they study for things. I don't understand why you're even asking this question.
