So in other words, for places like HYS, are they aware of what the average median LSAT score for AA's, and HA's are? If so, why won't they release those score medians as well? I think it would really help us applicants (I'm an African American male) to know in general what score would at least allow us a further look among those schools, and what score would probably mean rejection. We know that all things being considered, the average median for non-URM's will not be reflective of the median score that reflects the accepted applicant population of URM's at that particular school, although it does give an indication of what number a URM could prob. use to gage their chance if they did reach the median given to the public at that particular school. Hope I'm making sense, let me know if not.
You can use lawschoolnumbers to get an idea of what a URM needs for a given school. I'm sure schools keep track of these things, but won't release information like that for fairly obvious reasons.
Yeah Karen and I had a nice chat. I will say the reasons are not as obvious for me to understand. (If it was I wouldn't ask the question lol.) Karen did explain to me the reason, and after a few moments of thinking about my post (after the fact) i see how it could be a source of controversy. In my opinion, I'just want to look at the numbers that are an accurate reflection of my chances.LSN is a truely great site, and I've actually done what you suggested, but it's not a fully accurate accounting since everyone does not join the site. I assume that law schools keep those numbers for the exact same reason. (in order to gage who could most likely be considered an acceptable candidate.) So I just figure why shouldn't we?? Just my 2 cents. Thanks for answering my question!
