Some advantages are a result the person's actions, others are the result of events which the person cannot control. The LSAT, GPA and soft factors are remarkably controllable. A person can improve their LSAT score by a huge margin by studying, they can improve their GPA by applying themselves and they can improve their soft factors by getting involved. Can't change your race, though. As for the above posters, is that truly the only aim of the law schools? They have other intents in mind as well. As for blacks and hispanics being disproportionately affected by the CRJ system...that's a very complex issue, but not one of racism.
