This is criminal, that schools care so much about finding students whose scores will improve a school's ranking and so little about ferreting out the students who may actually make good lawyers. Many city based law schools have a long tradition of admitting older part-time students who work as cops, firemen, nurses, etc. and eventually make a profound contribution to the profession. It looks like those days will soon be in the past.

Actually, the schools will continue to admit those students. As long as they are part time, according to the article, they won't adversely effect rankings. It's more shameful from an ideological standpoint, that these wonderful people are considered something to tuck away or hide, just so law schools can garner more prestige.

The LSAT should be abolished. That's all I have to say about that.
