perhaps. I'm not opposed to the poverty argument. Its pretty compelling IMO. Statistically speaking, however, since there are more poor whites out there, it would seem they would get the competitive advantage of a system weighing poverty and not race or weighing poverty greater than race. So such a system could result in law schools being even less diverse than they are now. On the flip side, poor whites deserve opportunities as well and the door is not exactly open for them in terms of professional school admissions. So its a tough issue.
