Law School Admissions
In July 2007, Project SEAPHE began an effort to secure admissions data from all of the public law schools in the United States. The data is helpful in understanding not only the use of race in law school admissions, but on many related issues as well: (1) how much weight is given to numerical credentials in law school admissions? (2) How narrow is the band from which students are admitted? (3) What do the acceptance and rejection patterns of law applicants tell us about the degree to which “rankings” dominate other factors in law school choice?
