Looks Like Evidence for the Mismatch Theory

On his excellent TaxProf blog, Paul Caron links to a story about a minority woman who was admitted to Harvard Law, struggled and received “accommodations” so she could complete exams, then failed the Massachusetts bar exam twice (the second time also with accommodations).

People who demand such accommodations are ignoring the signals that reality is sending them.
