How much special consideration do URMs get?

It think, like any other rare commodity (because applicants are commodities, not people), you are given a preferential look in admissions. A URM with 75th pecentile scores and GPA is looked upon favorably, but they also have to have everything else.

Haha...applicants aren't commodities...
They're potential tuition cheques attached to application fees.

All I can say is that I know a mediocre female URM who was accepted into MIT. Her SATs were probably about a 1150, and her ECs did not compensate.
At least, she was smart enough to realize that the school is extremely tough, and consequently decided not to matriculate at MIT.

ouch that was harsh Flamingo...maybe she didn't matriculate at MIT because she wanted more of a liberal arts education? I'm sure that when the admissions office admits a person, they're confident that he/she can do the work
