If the LSAT is free from bias, explain disparity in scores in relation to ethnic backgrounds. The average score for African-Americans is 142, for Hispanics is 143 but for whites is 152. Doesn't that seem odd?
QuoteJesus Christ Tahoe...I have already explained that LSAT and UGPA are the two MAIN criteria by which the qualification of an applicant is judged - nobody can disagree with this. Also, it is accepted that all other determinants of qualification are secondary and are used merely to further distinguish between similarly qualified candidates. Since the person in question was grossly underqualified in terms of the main criteria, the secondary criteria should not even come into play.ChrisQuoteshe was NOT grossly underqualified in terms of LSAT/gpa. the 25th percentile LSAT at Boalt is 160, she barely falls below that. her gpa is right up there near the 50% range...add in exceptional experiences, personal statement, and LORs and you have a highly qualified candidate for admission.
