Affirmative Action / Time to End Merit Scholarships
« on: January 23, 2014, 01:13:12 AM »
People complain about affirmative action but what about the merit scholarships the law schools are giving to students with advantages to boost their u.s. new rank.  Students with advantages get these scholarships while people of color pay for them with higher tuition.  I would call this racial exploitation. Law deans who claim to be in favor of social justice are making people of color pay more for law school than students with advantages. They know that people of color come into law school with lower gpas and lsats because of poverty and discrimination but they don't care.  U.S. news rank is what matters not social justice. Then people of color are getting the low paying jobs or no jobs at all. This puts people of color into high debt. This is racial exploitation. These merit scholarships must end.

There is no deviation between the ABA numbers and the LST numbers, they are the same. LST uses the ABA numbers.

That's correct. I was using the job placement rate, not the us news rank.

You sure make a lot of assumptions.

City Law wrote, "My main argument is these numbers mean absolutely nothing. I imagine fewer Washington & Lee alumni keep in contact with their school than William & Mary based on Geography. Washington & Lee is located in Lexington, VA a town of 6,000 people in the middle of Virginia not near anything. Graduates likely leave the geographic area and do not keep their school updated."

What a ridiculous argument.  Have you heard of the US mail?  Have you heard of email?

W & M and W & L have comparable reputations and are in the same market.  Yet one has a 73% employment score and the other a 49.2% score for 2012. This is a significant difference and William and Mary must be doing something right. I certainly hope that you are not arguing that W & M students are working harder at finding a job than those at Washington & Lee.

You need to proofread your post or check your math.  W&M has significantly better employment figures than W&L for 2012.  I think you mean 55 grads from W&M grads were unemployed.

According to Law School Transparency, William & Mary has an employment score of 73% for its 2012 graduating class, while Washington & Lee's is 49.2% for the same year.  William and Mary must be doing something Washington & Lee isn't.

Not only have W & L's job placement percentages declined significantly, so have the starting salaries for their recent graduates.  For the graduating class of 2009, the median starting salary was $90,000. For the 2012 class, it was 57,404.  In addition, the 75th percentile salary for 2009 was $160,000, while for 2012 it was $70,000. Finally, the mean went from $102,491 to $68,220. http://law.wlu.edu/admissions/ninemonthdata.asp
