NY Times: Law School Grade Inflation and What it Means

We (and by “we” I mean “Colin”) reported a while ago that Loyola Law School was in the process of artificially inflating its grades to ostensibly put Loyola grads on a more even playing field than they had been previously (apparently Loyola averaged grades to a mean that was far below the mean at other schools). We posited that, instead, the powers that be at Loyola were actually looking to give their students a better chance at employment survival in the face of a broken economy. Because we like to take advantage of any time we can appeal to authority while also flexing our confirmation bias, The Paper of Record has given us a little validation.
