I suspect the admission committee must, perhaps subconsciously, discriminate undergrad institutions to an extent. I mean, they are human too.
if two people are exact same in every respect in terms of numbers, qualifcations etc., and one's from an Ivy School, and one's from "Lame Duck University", who would you want at ur law school?
Haha thats obvious, but... Thats not really what I'm curious about. I'm talking about more two schools who are on the same playing field rankings wise. Like two big, state universities. One who has a 155/3.3 average and one who has a 148/3.0 average, for example. It doesn't really matter.. I just wonder. Also, my school has had only a few people even apply to law school. The school has been around since 1956 and only has 800 applicants (Is this ever?). Plus, we don't have a prelaw advisor, any type of prelaw track or courses... so that prob has SOMETHING to do with the low numbers. Idk... I'm over thinking it haha.
