ABA Committee recommends dropping the requirement of standardized testing (e.g., the LSAT) for law school admission
Here. While the ABA has some power, the real power rests with USNews.com: if they still want LSAT scores, law schools will still use them. If USNews.com drops the LSAT scores, then the race to get the highest median GPA, regardless of the difficulty of the undergraduate course of study, will accelerate, since that will be the only numerical measure left for student admissions. That would be a disaster. Comments are open for thoughts from readers on this development and what it portends; submit your comment only once, it may take awhile to appear.
