Other than that the verbal/math distinction in the GRE has little relevance to law, why does this matter? Why do some regard it as a much needed reform within legal education? The cost of attending law school is a thousand times more important.
Oh, I get it now. Talking about the GRE means not talking about tuition costs.

@Michael Perry,

To be honest the LSAT has nothing to do with law school either.
