Stats here are 170+ sub-3.0 URM.
Actually, from what I understand, the grad fellowship is a pretty good deal, even with the work requirement. A few people I know at W&M got it last year and it doesn't take much time (they just sit at a circulation desk for a couple hours every now and then). You would be studying in the library anyway, so it's not like you would be going out and commuting somewhere. Also, out of curiosity, what was your GPA requirement? The people I knew needed to maintain at least a 2.0 (pretty low if you ask me), but I was wondering if it varied.
My letter said B average, which I assume is median.
