FWIW, though, about half of the people getting the 12/4/4 (on LSN) are not above both medians...? I think part of the 8/4/4 has to do with in-state vs. OOS.
The people getting the 24/8/8 deal are definitely above both medians, though.
I am just curious to know how they treat URMs with scholarships. The only token one we have accepted in this thread is Upfish but she's a splitter so it wouldn't be super indicative.
Same. I am a minority but not a URM. But at ASW, I felt like a URM at least compared to my undergrad. I have not received anything, nor did I expect to though, with my LSAT score.
I am a reverse splitter.
Funny you say that - Colorado is actually a pretty white state (70% white not hispanic from the last census), and Colorado law schools are even whiter (80%). The minority population at a Colorado law school is not what you would see at an east or west coast school, particularly in California, and is closer to a southern school (UVA, for example, lists a 19% minority, similar to CU).
That said, I obviously can't say whether the 'feeling' at our schools would be similar to a southern school, but I tend to think not. Although Colorado has a lot of white people, it is also a really laid back state, and I don't think we have some of the tensions you might find in a different region of the country. Of course, I'm white, so the possibility is really there that I just haven't noticed it, because I wouldn't.
EDIT: Hell, I don't even know what the 'feeling' is like at a southern school. Really, I'm just talking out of my ass here, and probably shouldn't even try.
