We're going into law - it doesn't matter what a thing is, what matters is how it looks on paper. If the percentage of minorities at a school pushes its USNWR ranking up regardless of what minorities they are, then at the very least, schools aren't going to penalize you for being Asian.


The percentage of minorities attending a school is a factor in the USNWR?


Oh. Never mind. I forgot it's just the California Bar that wants them to do that. It's important though.

ETA somebody please post a face palm. That was a pretty bad mistake.

Dude, wat. You can't think of any other reasons this might be the case?
