ED to UVa I think you will have a good shot (if you are a VA resident even better)

I don't think a student body president would be able to compensate for the weaknesses you have, but the:

URM!!!!

Good chance:D You'll be fine.

You realize that many think they will be receiving a URM boost and don't?

But thanks for the smartass reply.

It was a joke. And yes there are plenty of people I know that think they are URM's and are not. Your question was legit.

Which race do you most identify with? That's all the question is asking, though it'll be hard to justify that you identify with African Americans if you're white of Irish descent from Ohio. And if you're hispanic but not Puerto Rican or Mexican you won't receive any boost other than many a minor diversity boost.

if you report yourself Mexican, do you get more of a boost than if you report yourself: half mexican, half white?... feel free to be mean if you think this is a stupid question

As far as I know, most applications ask which race do you MOST identify with. So, you can't really report yourself half anything.

This...coupled with thread title is sufficient. The rest is just meaningless fluff. USNEWS and the other rankings law schools use to boost their egos could give a damn about the condiments in your application sandwich...just bring the meat (LSAT), cheese (GPA) and the all-important special sauce (URM)

yes being a URM is huge... I don't think it's a sure fire chance, but if you ED, write a good PS about overcoming adversity blah blah and get your application in ASAP my guess is you will have a real shot... despite what the law school calculators tell you. Go to law school numbers and you will see URMs scoring 150's with mid level 3's getting in T20 schools (of course a lot of them get rejected too, but the URM thing is a game changer and I think it will give you a realistic shot at all the schools you are applying to.)

If I were you I would ED at either Georgetown or UVa to maximizes my chances
