On the Fact that (Based on the Seminal Bar Passage Study of 1999 to 2004) a Black Student with a College GPA of 3.3 and an LSAT Score of 160 Has a 200% Better Chance of Passing the Bar on His or Her First Attempt if that Student Goes to Fordham Law School Rather than Columbia, Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cornell, Penn, Duke, or NYU Law School (I Refer You to the Taylor/Sander Book, "Mismatch", for a More In-Depth Analysis)

It's called mismatch and it happens when affirmative action students go to colleges where they are ill-prepared to compete and frequently either drop out completely or graduate and never pass the bar exam. And it's a tragedy because a lot of these affirmative action blacks could have attended schools such as Fordham, Syracuse, American U, etc. and done extremely well (colleges tend to teach to the middle and the fact of the matter is that a lot of law school students are in the bottom 10% of their classes at Columbia and Penn, ass opposed to being at the 50th percentile somewhere else). Thank you, white liberals.
