You've been making shit up about students' socioeconomic backgrounds since page one of this thread. Ever hear the expression, "Turnabout is fair play?"
I've asked a question for those who presume 70% of students receiving schollys are middle to poor class. You don't like that question, better yet go attack the media that say make the rich --> richer with the 100 million donation from Pritzker. #Fakenews?
However, writer Malcolm Gladwell criticized the Harvard gift, saying on Twitter, "It came down to helping the poor or giving the world's richest university $400 mil it doesn't need. Wise choice John!"
Until we know their backgrounds, don't claim otherwise. What we do know is one thing.
The solution to all this is a fair tuition. If you have rich kids --> they will have much more resources to study for the LSAT --> to receive higher scores to justify merit base scholarship.
Different from someone who might be married, having 2 jobs may be and studying for the lsat. Ces la vie, we're not trying to change the norm but that message of "we want diversity, we want easy access to quality education" throw it out the window please.
May be we should see NU offering a free LSAT prep course for those seeking resources. Or may be an online course with free resources and easy access. They're known to be leaders in business and entrepreneurship from kellogg. So offer a solution, Yale, Harvard, Standford, NYU, Colombia and the list goes on and on.
