Grade deflation isn't really a big issue here save for a few courses which are just killer. But then bird courses/bell curves usually even things out.

It's like he changes his accent from asian to white(American) every few words he speaks with little middle ground.
I get the feeling he's speaking Chinese in English.

Asians are not minorities in the law school admissions, they are over-represented and thus get no boost for diversity.
As far as the statistical evidence for the claim that law school admissions is almost entirely gpa/lsat based go take a look at lawschoolnumbers.com if you are truly...

I don't know what his LSAT score, but his admittance was a shock to everyone. In fact, when he told us he applied, we all assumed it was a Hail Mary
He's Canadian so he's not a true foreigner
OP: I have a short anecdote about one of my brother's best friends, a Taiwanese kid with American citizenship who grew up in Vancouver and lived nearby.
I don't know what impact minority (if Taiwanese counts as minority) and citizenship have on the application process.
Academically, this kid was in the 70-80% range in high school. He chose to attend NYU and recently finished his BA in journalism (or communications; something similar to English but easier).

IME they start working on the suit a few (more like 2) days before the appointment, even if you give them 1-2 months between measurement and fitting.

"They're a massive team of D bags, plus Patrice Bergeron". So now "plus" means, "besides"? Good to know.
Yes it does
Boston = D bags + PB
D bags = PB + other guys
