So, what are your thoughts???
Does being a URM really increase the overall appeal of an application?
If so, how much?
Is Asian still a URM?
Which URM is the most appealing for a law school to admit?
Does being a woman AND a URM make you more of a minority? What about being an impoverished URM vs an affluent one?
Feel free to add your own experiences and stories to the mix! I can't wait to see what everyone has to say!

But to answer your question. Yes there's a URM boost for African America, Native American, Puerto Rican and Mexican applicants. Asians are people of color but not URM. AA or NA usually get the biggest boosts. Not sure how much being a double minority helps. Use lawschoolnumbers and create your own conclusions.
