Well, for Yale Law, you at least need to work your butt off to get a high LSAT score, hence a fairer game.
Hmm, this seems to be a bit of a shaky conclusion.
I know what you mean.
But seriously, are you saying that having to work hard makes it fairer, getting a high LSAT score makes it fairer, or, more generally, the use of the LSAT makes it fairer? In any case, I think it's a fallacy to say that a 3.8 at HYPS works less hard than/is not as smart as a 3.8 at XYZ State. You could argue, actually, that grade inflation at top institution makes GPAs more like the LSAT rather than less.
