Kansas / Problems at KU Law
« on: August 09, 2008, 12:27:00 PM »
For those of you thinking of attending KU, I'd review the situation closely.  A friend of mine who attends says she regrets it.  There have been some big problems there recently.  For one, a KU law student was recently murdered right there in Lawrence.  Also, at a KU Law event a few months ago called Blue Book Relays a student dressed up as an African American!!!  :o  The administration didn't publicly respond to the incident for a while and even then some saw the response at way too little and way too late. Another problem: recently the official list of classes organized by the school was a total mess- several required classes over-lapped with other classes.  I heard the administration had to redo it all and many students were quite upset.  Plus the KU Law School has slipped in the rankings under the new dean, a woman named Agrawal, from I think 66 to 73. They also have a relatively low rate of graduates donating to the school, somewhere around 14%.  That says a lot about the quality of life at KU.  :( Many law schools around the nation have a giving rate in the 20's, 30's and above. So if you're thinking about attending KU for law school take a close look.  Maybe you should call the dean and ask about these things!!!
