The American Bar Association may be moving closer to ending the requirement that law schools use the LSAT, a move expected to boost diversity among prospective students. By making the LSAT optional, the ABA hopes to free law schools from the stranglehold of the U.S. News and World Report rankings, which it found has led schools to forgo diversity efforts in pursuit ofthat almighty No. 1 ranking. (That may be wishful thinking, however. U.S News' director of data research, Robert Morse, has said that the magazine "will continue to conduct the annual law school rankings, and the LSAT will remain a heavily weighted factor.") Of course, while law schools might be ready to welcome more minorities with open arms, minorities might not be so eager to return that hug: Law grads nowadays are debt-heavy and joblight, leading The New York Times to ask, "Is Law School a Losing Game?"
