you confuse subjective and objective qualifications
to make the A standard for the olympics you might have to be able to run a 10.5 100 meter
and you claim that anyone who can run a 10.5 is qualified to run in the olympics
but if the USA only is allowed 3 men in the Olympic 100 meter event and there are 6 who can run a 10.00 or faster-guess what, the guy who only can run a 10.5 is not subjectively qualified to be on the USA team because there are more than 3 other men who run faster times
Michigan law might have 400 seats. 10,000 people apply and lets say 4000 are objectively qualified meaning they can do the work and pass the exams
does that mean the guy ranked 3500 is qualified for the slot
NOT WHEN there are more than 400 people above him who are better qualified.
in a competitive environment you have to be more qualified than other applicants to get a position that has more applicants than slots
if a black need only a B average and a 85th percentile score on the boards to get into a top law school while a similarly situated white candidate has to have an A- average and a 98th percentile score on the LSAT, the standard has been lowered for blacks
Let's be honest. You are misrepresenting the situation so as to create a false image that standards are lowered when, in fact, they are not.
Plenty of whites get in at the lower end of the acceptance standards. Are we lowering the standards for them?
