Michael Kamps, a 57 year-old law school applicant was denied an appeal of his case by the Supreme Court. The gist of his lawsuit against Baylor Law School was that he was discriminated against on the basis of age since the school refused to admit him on his preferred terms of accounting for GPA inflation that has creeped into the calculation of GPAs subsequent to his undergraduate degree from 1979. The US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans noted that the school had admitted him and acknowledged that undergraduate GPA is a strong predictor of law school success.
Kamps told Texas Lawyer that he thought this was “the end of the road” for his case.
Best of luck with your applications!
