Law School Cockroaches Back University of Arizona James E. Rodgers Commode of Law in Dispute With LSAC Over Use of GRE for Admissions
LSAC TTThrows Down the GaunTTTleTTT: On May 2, 2016, Paul Caron covered the controversy in a piece entitled “The Empire Strikes Back: LSAC Threatens To Expel University of Arizona Over Use of GRE in Law School Admissions.” Check out the following portion, which relies heavily on the Wall Street Journal story:
“A top-tier law school’s decision to make the Law School Admission Test optional has put it on a collision course with the powerful national nonprofit group that administers the exam and controls much of the law-school application process nationwide.
University of Arizona College of Law has started allowing applicants to take the Graduate Record Examination test in lieu of the LSAT, a move the school hopes will expand and diversify the pool of students considering enrolling.
Since 2010, in the aftermath of the financial crisis, the number of students applying to law schools has shrunk considerably and is only now starting to stabilize. Allowing the GRE, the thinking goes, could give a boost to applications; at least five times as many people took the GRE in the latest admissions cycle as the LSAT…
Arizona Law, based in Tucson, says a study it conducted has convinced school administrators that the GRE, which is accepted by most business schools, is a reliable standardized substitute. But the change of its requirements has drawn them into a clash with Newtown, Pa.,-based Law School Admission Council Inc., which controls the LSAT and acts as a key application clearinghouse for more than 200 law schools across the nation.
LSAC’s general counsel in April notified Arizona Law that the school’s new policy may violate its bylaws, which require that “substantially all of” a law school’s applicants take the LSAT.
The group is considering expelling Arizona Law from its membership, which would effectively cut off the school’s access to a crucial student admissions pipeline.” [Emphasis mine]
Frankly, this seems to be an empty threat. Both the LSAC and law schools are parasites, and they need the lifeblood of young students and federal student loans to survive. They both benefit by morons applying to, and enrolling in, ABA-accredited cesspits. I laughed when I read that the bitches and hags want to “expand and diversify the pool of students” considering law school. It is ALL about the money, and that has ALWAYS been the name of the game! Providing opportunities to historically under-represented groups is meaningless tripe, merely designed to mask their ill intentions.
The Cockroaches Unite Against the LSAC: On May 4, 2016, Kathryn Rubino posted an ATL entry labeled “Law School Deans Fight Back Against The Tyranny Of The LSAT.” Check out this opening:
“When 148 law school deans all come together to say something, you’d better listen — especially if you administer the Law School Admission Test. For those who haven’t been following the story, Arizona Law decided to accept students who have taken only the GRE, not the LSAT. As the body that runs the traditional law school exam, the LSAC had a few choice words about that move. Earlier this week, they informed Arizona Law that if “substantially all” of their law students didn’t take the LSAT, they were in danger of getting kicked out of the LSAC, losing access to applicant data and the common application process…
LSAC has managed to consolidate quite a bit of power in the law school admissions game, and they are not looking to share that anytime soon.
Now a majority of law school deans have written a letter to the president of the Law School Admissions Council, Daniel Bernstine, in response to LSAC’s actions against Arizona Law.
They’ve picked a side, and it is Arizona’s:
We write as law school [cockroaches] to express our great concern over LSAC’s threat to expel the University of Arizona Law School because it experimented with using the GRE as a small part of its admissions process. Experimentation benefits all of us. We all expect to learn from the University of Arizona’s experiment and it should not be punished by LSAC.
Most importantly, we strongly urge that the Board of Trustees allow the University of Arizona to remain a member of the Council. Expelling it for this is unwarranted under the existing rules and sends a terrible message to law schools about experimentation in the admissions process. Also, as deans at ABA accredited law schools and members of the LSAC Council, we urge the LSAC Board of Trustees to modify the provision of LSAC Bylaws Article I, Section 1, which “requires that substantially all of its applicants for admission” take the LSAT. The rule should be changed to allow experimentation with alternative tests.” [Emphasis mine]
As you can see, the Raid-resistant, academic subspecies of the American cockroach came together to fight yet another evil destroyer of dreams. Remember when these pieces of garbage – led by Crooklyn’s Nicholas Allard – went after the National Conference of Bar Examiners, for making the MBE portion of the bar exam too damn difficult for their dumbass graduates?
On page two of this ATL piece, you can read the cockroaches’ letter to the president of the Law School Admissions Council. I guess they are taking no chances that this is a bluff. Somehow, I’m not surprised to see that the dean of Third Tier Drake joined the peTTTiTTTion.
Conclusion: In the final analysis, the law school swine want to be left alone – so that they can continue unabated to FINANCIALLY RAPE LEGIONS of students each year. They don’t want anyone – including organizations that are peripheral to the scam – to interfere with their scheme to grab more federal student loan dollars. As noted on Outside the Law School Scam by dybbuk, the “educators” are now looking to exploit community college pupils. Remember, they want to expand and diver$ify the applicant pool. Their experiment regarding the admi$$ion$ process can only hurt the students.
Often, these young men and women come from rougher backgrounds and lower socioeconomic status. Typically, they are brown or black – and they often juggle their course work with one or two low-wage jobs. The academic thieves want to get their claws on these marks. After all, they DO NOT GIVE ONE GODDAMN about their current students, many of whom come from middle class families. Despite all their liberal rhetoric, these “scholars” CERTAINLY do not care about Marquis, Shanice, Enrique, or Trang.
