The Accreditation Committee of the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar yesterday publicly censured Rutgers-Camden and imposed a $25,000 fine for the law school's use of standardized graduate admissions tests (GRE, GMAT, MCAT) in lieu of the LSAT in admitting up to 10% of the 1L class from 2006 to 2012 without seeking guidance from the Consultant’s Office and/or the Committee or requesting a variance from Standard 503 (requiring the use of a valid and reliable admission test) and Interpretation 503-1 (requiring a law school using an admission test other than the LSAT to establish the validity and reliability of the other test).
