A group of female law professors have drafted a letter to the Senate expressing concern over the Kavanaugh appointment. The letter has been covered by the UK Guardian here. The full text of the letter is as follows:
Evidence of hard work and strong high school GPAs are much more predictive of success in college and beyond. They also graduated only 0. Their average college GPA was 3. Grit and Determination At Kingston High School in upstate New York, Mendrinos was the kind of high-achieving, well-rounded student most colleges would fall all over trying to admit.
And she would finish high school with a 3.
Yet when she informed her high school guidance counselor of her dream to attend Pace University in Pleasantville, New York, she was told she would never get in. Her results were just as poor the second time she took the test. She tutored students in New York City who were learning English as a second language and, fittingly enough, served as a peer advisor for Pace students who had been admitted with high GPAs and low SAT scores.
Inafter working briefly as a Pace admissions counselor, she assumed a similar job at Temple University—the first of many admissions positions she has held here. Mendrinos figured that her academic achievements as an undergraduate had put to rest questions about her abilities based simply on standardized tests.
When Mendrinos applied to earn a master of higher education degree at Temple, she again bombed the standardized tests—this time, the Graduate Record Exams and Miller Analogies Test—and had to take three graduate courses to prove herself before being formally admitted to the program.
Refusing to again embarrass herself by retaking the GREs and MATs, she took three doctoral-level courses to illustrate her worthiness—and aced them all. Under her watch, prospective student visits have been increasing 10 percent to 15 percent annually.
In addition, she reviews and makes admission decisions on nearly 5, applications per year.
Of the incoming freshmen Mendrinos considered because they fit that profile, only 82 graduated in four years with a 3. The majority of the 82 students were white females from small public high schools—a somewhat surprising finding that nonetheless conforms with previous research that shows standardized tests disadvantage both females and minorities.
Mendrinos was compiling her research at the same time Temple University was considering the test-optional admissions procedure. Adoption of the Temple Option has elated Mendrinos.
