Not right. It could also be reflective of both your URM and splitter statuses.
NYU has unofficially held ppl and then accepted them later? There are definitely a few URMs with both stats below 25% that have gotten in already. I at least boost their LSAT median which I thought, combined with large class size, would give me a decent shot.
Don't read too much knowledge into my statement. I just think it's relevant to point to those factors and things that may cause your review to last longer than normal.
Now that you mention it, we are in similar boats. You're discouraged because a few people with similar status (URM) and lower stats have been accepted and you're still waiting. I'm discouraged because a few other ED-ers have been accepted with 171s and 3.5s and I'm still waiting.
The difference between us is you've received confirmation that you're still under review. I prefer to remain in ignorance and assume my decision has been mailed. While you may indeed be rejected or waitlisted, my aim was to stress my opinion that I think it's much too early to use continued review to rule out the third possibility.
