There’s controversy about LSU’s decision to adopt a holistic review when considering applications from new students. The review process would factor in more than just a high school senior’s ACT and GPA, and incorporate other elements for consideration. Board of Regents member, Richard Lipsey, not speaking for the board, says the move would hurt both LSU and regional colleges.
"And if now we can say don't worry about supporting Thibodaux or Lake Charles, you can come to LSU, because we are going to lower our standard, all we are doing is hurting the colleges and cities round the state," said Lipsey.
