The Careerist: Law School News – Baylor’s Big Fiasco; Hot Market for Law Deans

Posted by Vivia Chen

Baylor Law carries transparency too far. I don’t know if this will invite a lawsuit, but Baylor University School of Law has made a rather spectacular mistake. The National Law Journal  reports that the school “accidentally sent [accepted students] a spreadsheet detailing each of their scores on the Law School Admission Test, undergraduate grade-point averages, and the amounts of any scholarship awards.” What’s more, names, addresses, telephone numbers, undergraduate institutions, and ethnicities were also included.

Above the Law got its sticky little hands on the spreadsheet, which it posted—though it redacted the names and other identifying marks about the accepted students. Check it out if you’re curious about the range of undergraduate GPAs that a law school ranked 51 in U.S. News World Report expects these days. Most of the undergrad institutions were Texas-based, though there were a fair number from Brigham Young University (Who knew Mormons and Baptists had so much in common!).
