If a school's BPR is too low, it risks losing ABA accreditation. Just from a survival standpoint, law schools can't afford to admit too many applicants in the 130s--students that might never have the skills to pass the bar. So the nadir of standards probably has a floor of between 137-145, depending on how stringent a state's bar requirements are (e.g. an Oklahoma school could afford to dip lower than a California school).
Law schools can just force these people to drop out after 1st or 2nd year. T4s like Cooley or Florida Coastal already do this a ton. So even this artificial floor isn't really there.
What? You can't force someone to drop out unless they fail your school. What are you talking about?
