"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

I would love to see those actual grades. Please provide them along with evidence that no white man gained admission with the same record.(of course if bush got into Yale because white preppies were cut breaks that's bad but if Obama got into harvard law with grades that no white man was able to gain admission with that is great because Obama was "an oppressed minority"
the year I applied they supplied a graph. One vector was GPA. each gradation had a .15 range so the top box was 3.85 to 4.0
The LSAT was the next one. the top line was (I believe its been almost 30 years) 780-800. At HLS the top box on the grid was for anyone over a 3.8 and in the top 1% on the LSAT. acceptance percentages in that group was fairly good. maybe 55% chance. go one line down or one line back (ie top board scores but say a 3.75) you had less than a 50-50 chance of acceptance. Go down to a 3.2 and there were a few acceptances. I was told by the Harvard Dean of Admissions when I met with her at YLS in 1980 that those were "special cases" (ie minorities). The year I applied to Yale and Harvard, Columbia and Cornell Law schools (among others) the black student with the highest credentials who was accepted had scores that NO WHITE male was admitted with and any of those four schools
