Kinda surprising, isn't it, Sands. I was thinking LSAC, of all organizations, would fall on the other side.On a seperate note, here is a symposium of interest for anyone who might be in the Inidana area in April:http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2005/02/indianablooming.html
Yeah but you gotta consider the gravity of that brief. I agree with lil token, it only makes sense for LSAC to fall the other way on this issue. I'm actually both impressed and shocked. By saying what they said, they are basically acknowledging that there is more to law school admissions than the LSAT which they administer. They acknowledge that they are the gatekeepers to law school but even with that being said, they further acknowledge that their gate has flaws. That's a very admirable approach. Very humble of LSAC to step off their high horse and admit that minority students who don't happen to have a 175 on their test are still QUALIFIED to attend the top schools because test scores are not an accurate indicator of success in law school (which a lot of kids on this board refuse to beleive despite even the test creators saying its true).I think the most powerful statement from that brief is when they say that:High test scores and grades are not an entitlement to law-school admission.
