The only one that we definitely know accepted was 172/3.88.
I think it's safe to say that just about all of the Rubensteins will go to people above both medians. You can probably mix in a couple of high-powered URMs in there too.
I hope this doesn't come across as extremely stupid.
Is there a point at throwing the Ruby$ to URMs that don't have #s above both medians? I don't think anyone reports URM stats separately, so you don't really need high # URMs, just URMs that don't hurt your overall stats. I thought schools tried to get a decently diverse class, and there's proportionally less high # URMs, and that is why URMs somtimes can get in with subpar admissions #s. Chicago may need to give a URM $ to convince him to attend over a peer, but I don't see it making sense to give a Ruby to a URM that wouldn't be competitive for it regardless of status.
I feel like a prick for writing that, but I hope you understand what I'm trying to say. Not trying to start any type of debate, just trying to see if I understand things correctly.
