I don't know that this is accurate. Looking at LSN, I'd say that you were probably right. Almost all the URMs who were accepted had extremely high GPAs, and a few had LSATs in the 170-174 range to match. However, since early-March, it seems like those who have been interviewed have been less competitive on paper. I know of a couple of people who are below both 25ths who were interviewed and one who was accepted.

The usual issues about LSN not being representative of the general applicant pool are salient, but I don't think you can say that only the numerically strongest URM candidates have been accepted so far.
fair enough. how about MOSTLY?
