Obamas Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland graduated from Harvard Law? Disqualified

Well I'm rejecting him sight-unseen.
If he is appointed, Garland would give the court five graduates of Harvard Law School: John G. Roberts, Anthony M. Kennedy, Stephen G. Breyer and Elena Kagan. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg attended Harvard Law but transferred to Columbia Law School, where she graduated. Three justices are Yale Law School alums: Clarence Thomas, Sonia Sotomayor and Samuel A. Alito Jr.
You cannot have 5 justices that all graduated from the same school. There is no diversity in opinion if they all took the same classes and had the same professors. It is not the Supreme Court of Harvard it is the Supreme Court of the entire-US. If Obama actually cared about diversity and income inequality and such he would appoint someone from any other law school that is not Harvard or Yale. It is just that simple.
