There is no way an average high school student is going to get scholarships enough to pay for college, I was a damn good student and I couldn't find shit. Work study is a pittance.
Should the average high school student be going to law school in the first place? We're talking about above average students. (Aside from the argument: it is totally possible to pay for college if that is what you really want and you are gifted and willing to work hard).
They should be able to if they turn themselves around. I'm not prepared to write off people who didn't have their shit together at 15 years old. Furthermore children from poor areas have absolutely atrocious school systems. This is quite possibly the worst argument I've ever heard.
I think you're misunderstanding my argument. I'm saying that the LSAT is far more fair than undergrad admissions. There is more to overcome and a it is hard to self-study a decent high school education. It is more affordable and easier to study your way to a good score on the LSAT than the SAT.
Well I agree with that.
