So what's the big @ # ! * i n g deal about Mel Gibson saying this? Where did the freedom of speech go? Mel was drunk, and I'm sure it's not the worst thing you'll ever hear from someone who is drunk. And because he's a Hollywood movie star, that is supposed to make a difference?

And even if he was sober, isn't this America with freedom of speech and the like? 

What the hell does what Mel Gibson did have to do with freedom of speech?

Of curse it does ..

             Harvard    Cooley
top 50%      3.40       3.00
top 25%      3.70       3.30

[...] because Harvard has a higher grading scale than Cooley our transferee would get better grades than he got at Cooley, so his GPA will be 3.7, instead of the 3.4 Cooley gave him [...]

So T4 students are twice discriminated against with regard to the GPA, the first time when they are graded by the T4s and then again when they are screened by employers that look down on T4s?

Don't you understand that employers would not look down on T4s, were the latter not to grade atrociously, much different than T1s?! The two go together.

A ton of people go to law school, so there must be some good things I haven't thought of yet.

Of course there are. One of them is money.
