Whether public or private, schools have some responsibility for educating their residents. A school that is training more White students than are in the state population is failing to meet the diverse needs of its people. Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia are treated as States, Puerto Rico (2%) had the lowest percentage of non-Hispanic White students. Maine and Vermont (93%) had the highest percentage of non-Hispanic White students. The average non-Hispanic White students were 67% and half the states had less than 71% non-Hispanic White students.
In this calculation, 139 schools (69.5%) had more non-Hispanic Whites in their first-year class than in the state population. Of the 139 law schools with Excess Whiteness, the minimum number of points was 1. The maximum number of Excess Whiteness was 32. The average number of Excess Whiteness points was 12. Half the schools had more than 12 Excess Whiteness points.
