This is a problem with ABA accreditation standards. I don't know about anyone else, but when I was in college I was an idiot. I didn't take the LSAT seriously nor did I take GPA seriously. So I landed myself into a conundrum. It was a immaturity and being poor.
Anyways, after getting 5 rejections, 2 waitlists, and 1 acceptance. I decided I would take my acceptance. It was a non-aba school. It was the best choice I could have made. I got loads of attention, and was given an opportunity. I passed the bar last year in Conn/Mass. Plus I charged up half of what my friends up at Suffolk have on their tabs.
Yet, I am still discriminated against by the usual suspects. Despite the fact I have 2 bars under my belt and a JD/BA. Some of the ABA schools in Mass should not be ABA that is true. I can think of 3 off the top of my head. Right now they are lobbying to stop the first PUBLIC law school from forming out of a school that should have been accredited a long time ago. Due to political bs they got slammed in 2004.
The ABA operates on dirty money and political clout. Period. The fact they are a private organization is also at issue I think.
