Report: Law School Discriminates

The conservative Center for Equal Opportunity, a Virginia group opposed to affirmative action, has released a report concluding that UVa’s law school is the most discriminatory school in the country, preferring blacks applicants over whites at a rate of 730:1 in 1999. “At UVA, with an LSAT score of 160 and a GPA of 3.25, a black in-state male applicant in 1998 would have had a 96 percent chance of admission, versus only a 3 percent chance for identical Hispanic and white applicants, and a 7 percent chance for an identical Asian applicant.” Says the dean of UVa’s law school, “You can always find a statistic to make a point, and that’s what they’ve done.” The full study is available as a PDF. Eric Swensen has the story in today’s Progress.
