GMU Law in trouble

George Mason University is where I currently am going to be come an economist and hope to go for graduate school. At one point I wanted to go to law school and go to Mason’s. They have been ranked in the top tier. It ranks 38th in the top 100.

Now GMU Law is in trouble because it isn’t “diverse enough.” The American Bar Association has been threatening to do it since 2000. This from Connect2Mason.com:

“Of the entering students in 2000, 6.5 percent were minorities, according to a recent op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal. In 2002, 10.8 percent were minorities, which rose to 17.3 percent in 2003 and 19 percent in 2004. The article reported that this number just barely satisfied the ABA when the choice was made to give the law school reaccreditation in 2006 under the condition that “particular attention” would be paid to GMU’s efforts to expand diversity in the upcoming years.”

The ABA said that the school isn’t willing to participate in affirmative action programs. This to me is a great thing. I think it is good that GMU Law is actually doing something important like improving their school instead of trying to hard to get minorities.

The ABA should leave GMU Law alone and let GMU Law decide what is good for GMU Law.
